A L O H A From Honolulu!

The sky is already purple;
the first few stars have
appeared, suddenly, as if
someone had thrown
a handful of silver across
the edge of the world.
Alice Hoffman

Who closes eyes to
kneels his eyelids. Charles de Leusse

(Qui ferme les yeux aux dictatures -
Agenouille en fait les paupières.)

Green is the prime color
of the world, and that from
which its loveliness arises.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca

I did not wish to take a
cabin passage, but rather to
go before the mast and
on the deck of the world,
for there I could best see the
moonlight amid the mountains.
Henry David Thoreau.

How does it happen that
something that makes so
much sense in the moonlight
doesn't make any sense
at all in the sunlight? Lana Turner

Somebody who views the world
at fifty the same as they did
at twenty has wasted
thirty years of life. Muhammad Ali


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

That fourth photo took my breath away.

Pixie makes sense in the sunlight and the moonlight! Lovely pictures today. I love the ducks and the fireworks.

Cloudia said...

Ducks and fireworks. That's what I should call my autobiography! Thank you both so much!🌺

You know, the icons with your names are very small. So I see the comment first. It's really amazing how I recognize your voices and know who is speaking before I even pinch up your name and confirm it. I really appreciate the relationship we have and the trust you place in Pixie and myself. It is a blessing to us to be here for you. Thank you for making it count ❤️🌿
