Joy Comes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Perfect happiness is
a beautiful sunset, the
giggle of a grandchild,
the first snowfall.
It's the little things that
make happy moments,
not the grand events.
Joy comes in sips,
not gulps. Sharon Draper

We don't have to engage
in grand, heroic actions
to participate in the
process of change.
Small acts, when
multiplied by millions
of people, can
transform the world. Howard Zinn

Honolulu's Lone Gondola

A wondrous city
of fairest carving,
reflected in gleaming waters
swirled to new patterning
by every passing gondola. 
Sylvia Pankhurst

So by one gondola then?

Try saying "hello" to someone
who wouldn't expect you to -
today would be good. John Avery

Zingiber spectabile is
a species of true ginger,
native to Maritime Southeast Asia.
It is primarily grown in the West
as an ornamental plant, although it
has been used in South-East Asia
as a medicinal herb.

Our Daily Good Deeds
Great & Small
Rising up from the World
are Fine Music
to listening Angels.


Love You,

Is the gecko saying hello to Pixie, or did he come for the joy of rainbow cake? Awesome post today! Sheer joy!

Pixie is so lovely.
Your skies are inspiring. We've had a couple days rain, prefaced by a hot couple of sunny days.

RedPat said...

Every bit helps. Love the gecko.

The gecko looks surprised.

Gorgeous sky in that first shot.

Those flowers are so pretty, almost as pretty as you are sweet Pixie. Cool gondola too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

The Lone Gondola sounds like a book about Venice right before it went all the way underwater.
