Never Lose

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Never lose an opportunity
of seeing anything beautiful, 
for beauty is God's handwriting.
   Ralph Waldo Emerson

Me and my excavator

I have never been 
especially impressed
 by the heroics of people
 who are convinced they are 
about to change the world. 
I am more awed by those 
who struggle to make
 one small difference 
after another.

  Ellen Goodman

Moon Rise Off North Shore Oahu by Mike Price

As far back as the 19th century,
Jewish storekeepers were virtually
the only Southern merchants who
addressed black customers as
'Mr.' and 'Mrs.' and permitted
them to try on clothing.
    Howard Sachar, 
        Author and professor of Modern History
     at George Washington University.

When we begin to think
about our angels,
they begin to
manifest themselves.
    Paulo Coelho

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Beauty is everywhere. Thank you for the splashes of it you share.

Love your rainbow capture! The moon shot is just beautiful.
Lovely images! Take care, enjoy your weekend!

William Kendall said...

Lovely rainbow.

Brian said...

Cool photos! That digging machine would work good in the litter box, right Pixie?!?! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Jenn Jilks said...

Your skies are amazing. My daughter comes home from Punta Cana tomorrow. Her photos have been wonderful.

Sandee said...

So warm where you are and so very cold here. I'm all bundled up this morning.

Aw on Pixie. She's such a beautiful kitty.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Scritches to Pixie. ♥

RedPat said...

Another fabulous rainbow. Thanks Cloudia.

Betty Manousos said...

Pixie and Cloudia, love you too! thank you so much for the Friday inspiration.
i really appreciate you/your posts.

big hugs!

Teresa said...

Great shots today. I love the rainbow and the moon shots. I agree with Ellen Goodman. Pixie is saying that she is polite to everyone, even to the furless giants of the world (as long as they give her treats and catnip...). She is not prejudiced about their lack of suitably lush and glorious pelts.

James said...

Excellent photos once again. I think the moonrise and Pixie have similar colors. :-)

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Cheers, Pixie and Cloudia!

DeniseinVA said...

Outstanding as always, photos and words. Thank you :)

DVArtist said...

A very lovely post. However, that moon shot is amazing. Pixie looks quite content too. Thank you for joining FFO. Have a nice evening.

If I ever need an electric wheelchair, I'm just going to get a little excavator. I'll be able to go anywhere.

Amazing pics, Loved the post.

Jim said...

Couples dressing alike makes me smile.

Light and Voices said...

Easy to find each other if you dress alike. LOL! We try to Pay it Forward daily. Agreed. Do one kind thing a day for someone else. Hold a door. Help someone put groceries in their trunk. Pick up litter. When someone asks what they can do for you in return I say, "Pay it Forward to someone else who needs it." This is how the world will change. One small kindness to another.

I need to look up work by Paul Coelho again. I am officially in love with Pixie. Your following pics of leaf and palm are really engaging my creative side... happy thanksgiving to a lovely woman. Oh and the quote about admiring people who struggle to do good things... yes, more of that needed
Love, LeeAnna

Aloha Cloudia and Pixie looks like a wonderful wander about town, and the cute couple in matching shirts, I love it. Ellen's quote is spectacular too, so spot on. Keep the sun shining for us all, because it's cold over here. Take care.
