Forget, Love, Focus

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

Perfect love is the most
beautiful of all frustrations
because it is more than
one can express.
    Charlie Chaplin

Care about the person
in front of you.
Not labels or sides.

Life responds to
the generous.

I've often noticed that
we are not able to look at
what we have in front of us,
unless it's inside a frame.
Abbas Kiarostami

Luxury is anything
that feels special.
I mean, it can be a moment,
it can be a walk on the beach,
it could be a kiss from your child...
 luxury doesn't necessarily
have to mean expensive.
     Aerin Lauder

Faith is the very opposite
of clinging to belief,
of holding on. Alan Watts

There comes a time in your life,
when you walk away from
all the drama and people
who create it. You
surround yourself with
people who make you laugh.

Forget the bad and
focus on the good.
Love the people who
treat you right, pray
for the ones who do not.

Life is too short to be
anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life,
getting back up is living.
    José N. Harris

Unfortunately I think your blog is about as close as I'm likely to get to Hawaii - but I'm so glad I get to see it through your eyes.
Thanks for sharing at

There are times when a nap in a sun puddle is entirely called for.

I got an error when I tried to publish. Did it twice. Now I'm back for a third time.

Love your photos, quotes and Pixie. Nice photo of the vacationer with the drink. I like how her shoes matched her outfit. Thanks for these lovely images and the drink you shared with us for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.
