Unexpected Element

A L O H A From Honolulu!
We all have an
unsuspected reserve of
strength inside that
emerges when life
puts us to the test.
Isabel Allende

Cana Lily, Canna indica, Indian shot

You will do
foolish things, but do them
with enthusiasm.

Walk as if you are
kissing the Earth
with your feet.
 Thich Nhat Hanh

Yellow Hibiscus

Politeness is the

flower of humanity.

Joseph Joubert 

Hibiscus Tiliaceus tree flower

Gratitude gilds everything

like sunshine

Cana Lily, Canna indica, Indian shot, seed pods

Drink your tea slowly
and reverently, as if
it is the axis on which
the world earth revolves
–slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Monkey Pod Tree Blossoms,
Samanea saman, also
sometimes known as
the rain tree,
is a species of flowering tree
in the pea family native to
Central and South America.

Things are never as bleak as
they can sometimes seem.
There's always a twist,
an unexpected element.
Events ricochet they don't
proceed in an orderly
predictable fashion.
Stop catastrophizing
and start living. Oh Joy!

Love You,
