A L O H A From Honolulu!

A bird is joy incarnate.
Myrtle Reed

Iolani Palace, Honolulu

It was as if I had
inherited a palace by
virtue of simply
being in love. Aspen Matis

Let right be your light
May you always burn bright
Glowing the path for others.
Terri Guillemets

The Izumo Taishakyo Mission
Date established: 1906
Honolulu Shinto shrine
one of few active Shinto shrines
in the USA The wooden structure
was inspired by the
classical Japanese shrine
Izumo-taisha. Wikipedia

I am smart enough
to keep it simple,
make it simple, and I
don't mind seeming simple.

Be thine own palace,
or the world's thy jail. John Donne


Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Birds are feathered enchantment - and set off the beauty of a rainbow well.

Pixie is an expert at making the world into her palace! Great pictures today. Thanks for sharing the joy of Honolulu.

I couldn't afford to inherit a palace. I couldn't afford the upkeep.

Pixie has her eyes on those ducks.

Hi Cloudia, what a treat to see these sun drenched photos. We are in the middle of a typical January white with snow world. Thanks for the great quotes too.

Jenn Jilks said...

Beautiful photos. I love the colours so much.

Cloudia said...

Wherever pixie lives is a palace because she is a queen. Thanks so much for stopping by friends

I was wondering if you were going to see the funeral of the princess. I saw it in the news and it looked beautiful and historic.
