If we believe absurdities,
we shall commit atrocities. Voltaire

Morning Shadows & Light Reflected
Try not to become a person
of success but rather to
become a person of value.

Since you cannot do good to all, pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into
closer connection with you. Augustine of Hippo

If a hungry bird has your tail,
better to lose the tail
than to be a meal!
Lizard Wisdom

There is something in
every season, in every day,
to celebrate with thanksgiving.

All The Paint You Can

is to teach one to carry oneself
triumphant to the sunset. Liberty Hyde Bailey

One Day Sunday

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The mind creates the abyss,
the heart crosses it.
Nisargadatta Maharaj

Everywhere I walked this morning
there were elevens, and one elevens,
waiting for me. On a motorcycle, 
a container of shredded coconut,
and written on my path.

Earth Angel #111 is
considered a potent symbol 
of new possibilities, and
spiritual awakening.
Noticing this number i
said to be a direct
message from your angels.
 111 is a powerful number
in numerology too
promising that your thoughts
could soon morph into reality.

"I and I" means that we
are both important,
that we should love one another
as we love our own self.
Rastafarian Wisdom

If you suddenly
and unexpectedly
feel joy,
don't hesitate.
Give in to it.
Mary Oliver

I'm Happy! My face just looks like this anyway!

Not only is there a
right to be happy, there is a DUTY
to be happy. So much sadness
exists in the world that
we are all under obligation
to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers. John S. Bonnell

A L O H A From Honolulu!

 Last year's words belong to
last year's language; And
next year's words await
another voice. And to
make an end is
to make a beginning. T.S. Eliot

Be strong enough
to be gentle. And
smart enough to not
act like the smartest
person in the room.

Let your heart speak 
to others' hearts.
   Yogi Bhajan

 If you have heart,
you can do anything.
 Karen Sather

I win or I learn,
but I never lose.

A Secret or Two

A L O H A From Honolulu!
You don't have to be
fastest or first.
Just Don't Stop!

When bad things happen
to good people they
make something good
out of it.

When something good
happens to bad people
they make something
bad out of it.

The secret of being a bore
is to tell everything.

We all need fresh starts.
That's why the sun
comes up everyday.
 A. Nony Mouse

Love You,

Teen Hero

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Share your voice and your heart.
Listen to how it falls in
with the cosmic symphony.
Let it be imperfect,
incomplete, unrefined.
The masterpiece is coming.
  Amy McTear

When you think you know
all the answers, 
you have finally become 
a perfect fool.

Orange You Glad?

"Every Day Better"

This is a young man I know,
named Genshu Price.
One day Genshu's dad suggested
that he collect recyclables to
save money for college.

Because G is a very smart
and kind young man,
he turned recycling into a
calling, then into a 
501c Nonprofit Organization
named Bottles4College.
Genshu plans on sending OTHER
local kids to college even
before he is ready to attend himself!

Every week G and his family
personally collect many pounds
of cans and bottles. Small businesses,
schools, restaurants and many others
have joined the
Bottles4College movement.
G inspires many many of us!

I remind G to take time for
fun and to be a kid,
But he loves what he is doing.
Recognition, news stories and awards
are to him just opportunities
to spread his message.

In case you wonder,
this young man is just starting
High School!

Can't wait till he is our 
Senator or Governor.

The larger the 
island of knowledge, 
the longer the 
shoreline of wonder.
           Ralph W. Sockman

The one you really love
will never grow old to you.
Through the wrinkles of time,
through the bowed frame of years,
you will always see the dear face
and feel the warm heart union
of your eternal love.
  Alfred Montapert


Love You,

Joy Sips

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

must come little by little - otherwise it would overwhelm. Idries Shah

The sweetest type of heaven is home. Josiah Gilbert Holland




Little Things Thursday

I Like Thursday

Little tendrils of the heart
Curling out and groping,
Seeking little things to hold,
Wiggling and hoping.

Little tendrils, little tendrils,
innocent and plucky,
I pray that you are careful
And I hope that 
you are lucky.
     Michael Leunig
