As Humans

A L O H A From Honolulu!

True greatness is on
the other side of
temporary defeat
Napoleon Hill

 Albezia "Persian Silk Tree Flower"

A superb tenor voice,
like a silver trumpet
muffled in silk.
Alec Guinness

Japanese Visitors are Back in Waikiki

Travelers are fantasists,
conjurers, seers - 
  Cynthia Ozick

Ravenala "Traveler's Palm"
Our human compassion binds us
the one to the other -
not in pity or patronizingly,
but as human beings
who have learnt how to
turn our common suffering
into hope for the future.
Nelson Mandela

Me and My Shadow

This worldly life
is like a shadow.
If you try to catch it,
you will never be
able to do so.
If you turn your
back towards it,
it has no choice
but to follow you.
 Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya


Love You,
