Great Value

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Morning Surfers Diamond Head

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

Dissolves fear.
A smile
Thins the veil
Between Heaven & Earth,
Between souls.

Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will
sing with you!

If you cry because the sun
has gone out of your life,
your tears will prevent you
from seeing the stars. Rabindranath Tagore

Don't be afraid of the
sharps, flats, or minor keys
in the melody of your life.
They give your song it's
soul and great value.

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Here's something funny. I have laryngitis right now and one thing I can't do is laugh.

Pixie wonders why that turtle is taking so long.
