No Time To Rush

A L O H A From Honolulu!

I am still on my zigzag way,
pursuing the diagonal
between reason and heart.
Ruskin Bond

True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by. E.S. Boutons

I thank you God for this
most amazing day, for the
leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is
natural, which is infinite,
which is yes. e. e. cummings

Very often a change of self
is needed more than
a change of scene.
A. C. Benson

"Faces Off"
That brick that you're standing on,
that foundation that
you're standing on,
there's a brick in there
that was placed
by someone you never knew,
sort of a
faceless possibility, but
you're there now.
You have an opportunity to
put your own brick in there. 
    Christopher Jackson

I never hurry.
I have no time to hurry. Igor Stravinsky

No my friend, darkness
is not everywhere,
for here and there I find
faces illuminated from within;
paper lanterns among the dark trees.

The only person

It is a wish lantern set out
into the dark sky of night.

to stumble is commonplace;
to be able to laugh
at yourself is maturity. Willam Arthur Ward

Feeling Optimism

A L O H A From Honolulu!

You don’t take a photograph.
You ask quietly to borrow it.

Big things are often
just small things
that are noticed. Markus Zusak

Great wisdom is generous;
petty wisdom is contentious.

Extraordinary afflictions
are not always punishment,
but sometimes the trial
of extraordinary graces.
Matthew Henry

Rebirth Renew

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Birthing is never easy
or without pain,
be it a universe, a child,
or a fresh start in life.
Contraction precedes expansion.
Darkness comes before dawn.
Joy follows pain. This is
the way of things.
John Mark Green

Even the Sun
gets tired of rising,
but does it out of
love for the Earth...

For each of us,
there comes a time when
we must awaken and become
what we were born to become.

so that I may enter it. Kamand Kojouri

Morning "REBIRTH" Anyone?
Each day the world is born anew
for one who takes it rightly.
