Naturally Become

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Sunset Reflection
We're all a little weird.
And life is a little weird.
And when we find someone
whose weirdness is
compatible with ours,
we join up with them
and fall into mutually
satisfying weirdness
— and call it love —
true love.
Robert Fulghum

           When you complain,
you explain pain
for no gain.

Borzoi  Bliss

 I don't give a damn about
what you know or
what you do if
you can't be kind. 
Talk to me so that
I might know
who you are.
Be naked in the
vocabulary of kindness
Sandy Carlson

A joyful life is an
individual creation that
cannot be copied
from a recipe.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

The sky is your canvas
and your imagination
is your paintbrush.

When you realize
where you come from,
you naturally
become tolerant,
disinterested,* amused,
kindhearted as
a grandmother,
dignified as a king.

Wonderful quotes today. I think Pixie is as kindly as a grandmother and as dignified as a king!

If you're going for a walk, always carry sidewalk chalk with you.

Complaining really gets one nothing but irritates others. Love that first pic. Looks like fire on the side of the building.

A cute chalk mural. Lovely quotes and great first picture with the sun reflection.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Cloudia.

Oh, that Hawaiian grown coffee looks good! I used to have it shipped directly from a coffee farm on the Big Island to my home in Michigan, but the price went up and up. I met the farm owners at the Kona farmers' market, so I knew who I was dealing with. Buying it from a coffee broker here is risky since the labeling laws allow deception on the part of sellers (or maybe the law has changed... I doubt it).

I find that when I am in pain, (which is most of the time) if I say it out loud and get rid of the negativity of it, I feel better. Love the coffee labels. Have a great day today.

I was blown away by that sunset reflection in the first photo. I was also in love with those coffee blends. I was blown away by the price of Hamakua coffee. I pay that for 2.5 lbs of fair trade certified French roast. Thanks for waking me to the cost of real coffee and sharing it for T Tuesday this week, dear Cloudia.
