Honolulu Marathon Runners

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Lessons from a Christmas Tree: Be a light in the darkness. We all fall over sometimes. You can never wear
too much glitter. Bring joy to others. Sparkle and twinkle
as often as possible. It's okay to be a little tilted. Jane Lee Logan

Waikiki endured lock-down.
Our streets were empty,
Stores boarded up;
But Sunday saw the running of
the 50th Honolulu Marathon.

Mix in Christmastime hustle,
and the beach town is feeling
like herself again!

Hanukkah, Kwanzaa

Life is a craft no one masters.
But we will see an abundance of
amazing colors, beautiful views and
stunning insights along the way.
Ricky Maye

People may talk as much as they like
about their religion, but if it does not
teach them to be good and kind
to man and beast, it is a sham. Anna Sewell


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

If you’re sad,
add more lipstick
and attack.

* Mele is Merry in Hawaiian!

Sorry I am so late visiting. I was blown away by the tree and the quotes, as well as the skyline view. But I was really impressed that every runner had a bottle of water, which is perfect for T this week, dear Cloudia.

Cloudia said...

Thank you! The final photo of the makeup lady also had a Coca-Cola bottle in it.

Cloudia said...

Thank you. Most sincerely, my dear friends for your visits and kind comments
