Monkey July

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The advantage of the
cauliflower is that
if all else fails, you can
always cover it with
melted cheese and eat it. William E. Simon

are flowers too,
once you get to
know them.
  A.A. Milne.

 Don't wear perfume in the garden-
unless you want to be
pollinated by bees. Anne Raver

We've all heard that
a million monkeys banging
on a million typewriters will
eventually reproduce the
entire works of Shakespeare.
Now, thanks to the Internet,
we know this is not true.

If Gracious

A L O H A From Honolulu!

An exclamation point
is like laughing
at your own joke.
  F. Scott Fitzgerald

The tiger's roar
filled the cave
with thunder.
  Rudyard Kipling

If parents are gracious,
children will bask in it
like the beach
on a sunny day.
Michael Cannon Loehrer

You cannot be
who you are not. Simply rest, sit
still and unknot. You may even try
to emulate and inspire, But it's the inner self
that you'll transpire. Ana Claudia Antunes

Profound Beauty, Mystery & Wise Delight

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The government of
mutual love is
heavenly government.

Grace woke you up
this morning,
grace started you
on your way and
grace enabled you to
survive until
this very moment.
   Charles E. Blake

You are not the
darkness you endured.
You are the light that
refused to surrender.
 John Mark Green

War and conflict
hold our attention, but
so can profound
beauty and mystery.
Solomon Enos

Fools are tormented by
the memory of former evils;
wise folk have the delight of
renewing in grateful remembrance
the blessings of the past.  

I have never wished to
cater to the crowd;
for what I know
they do not approve,
and what they approve
I do not know.

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Don't Wait

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Don't wait for a rainbow
to come into your life.
Smile and create
one of your own.
Anthony T. Hincks

Architecture is a visual art,
and the buildings
speak for themselves. Julia Morgan

Not all of us can
see the rainbow. Anthony T. Hincks

Maybe your life purpose
isn't supposed to be a
thrill-seeking narrative. What if you're meant to be the
sunshine to someone's stormy day?
Or the voice of clarity
to a frantic mind?
You don't have to be a
superhero to save the world. @consciousreminder

I was rich,
if not in money,
in sunny hours and
summer days. Henry David Thoreau

Many True Errors

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Science has been built
upon many errors; but
they are errors which it
was good to fall into,
for they led to the truth.
Jules Verne

The sparrows jumped
before they knew
how to fly, and
they learned to fly only
because they had jumped.
Lauren Oliver

An uneven, windy path
is unavoidable to many.
Its unforeseen, exciting adventures
require balance, adjustment,
alertness and attention.
A path that leads to a
rewarding dream of your life. Miriam Hurdle

Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Open the bloom
of your heart and become
a gift of beauty to the world.
Bryant McGill

Happy Life Must Be

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
Now and then it's good to pause
in our pursuit of happiness
and just be happy.


The government of
mutual love is
heavenly government.

I think of a hero as someone
who understands the degree
of responsibility that comes
with his freedom.
  Bob Dylan

A happy life must be
to a great extent
a quiet life, for it is
only in an atmosphere of
quiet that true joy dare live.
Bertrand Russell

Visit the World

A L O H A From Honolulu!

When from our better selves
we have too long been parted by
the hurrying world, and droop...
 how gracious, how benign
is solitude.

The greatest rebellion is
loving yourself in a world
trying to sabotage your light.
Nikki Rowe

Monkeypod Tree Blossoms what a
Difference 1 letter makes! [X]
The blooming is when you
see yourself with kind eyes,
carry a little more grace
for your reflection, and
speak of forgiveness as if
it's your last name.
  Heal. Grow. Love.

Solitude would be ideal
if you could pick
the people to avoid.
 Karl Kraus

Introverts live in two worlds:
We visit the world of people,
but solitude and the
inner world will always
be our home.
   Jenn Granneman
Love YOU,
Pixie & Cloudia
