Springtime Tuning

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Showing Spring
The presence of fools,
makes wise people
stand out.
 Japanese Saying

Hibiscus High
Generous people
live abundantly;
Misers are
never satisfied.

Pagoda Haircut

To control the mind is
like trying to control
a drunken monkey
that has been bitten
by a scorpion.
    Hindu Saying

When I was young
I would see an old lady.
Today I see a
fellow survivor.

Better my own cottage
than the palace of another. Wisdom of the Welsh


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Pixie was hoping to see a drunken monkey bitten by a scorpion. She's a bit disappointed to have missed the fun show. Love the hibiscus high today.

Mike said...

Is your fellow survivor carrying a grabber? What's she going to grab on the beach?

Oh boy ... your wisdoms sure hit home in this day and age and I agree, fellow survivors have a different meaning when you get to be my age. Your pictures are gorgeous, especially the flowers and, of course, love to Pixie :)

Loved the hibiscus high and the fellow survivor. Beautiful shots and great quotes, but those two caught my eye today. Along with beautiful Pixie, of course.

Your first quote reminds me of a Tom Waits line in one of his songs:
"In the land of the blind, the one eye'd man is king".
