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 

If you find it in your heart
to care for somebody else, 
you will have succeeded. 
Maya Angelou 

Be humble for you
are made of earth...

...Be noble for you
are made of stars.
   Serbian proverb

Dracaena angustifolia: an Asian 
tropical forest under-storey plant: 

The one who forgets
to be thankful 
has fallen
asleep in life.
 Robert Louis Stevenson

Ochna serrulata leaves

A point of view can be
a dangerous luxury
when substituted for
insight and understanding. 
  Marshall McLuhan

A moment's insight
is sometimes worth
a life's experience.

Oliver Wendell Holmes


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Thanks for sharing so much beauty with us. I think that Pixie has forgotten to be thankful. She has definitely fallen asleep.

The city photos are intriguing, and the flowers are very pretty. I enjoyed the quote from Emerson … he could be such a cornball!

I loved it all, except the snail. I have an aversion to them. The architecture was stunning.
