Childlike Wonder, Just add Experience

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Shout-out to all the people
who wake up early to shine
before the sun does.
Anonymous Appreciator

My morning run is the in-between
space of yesterday’s forgotten
problems and today’s
beautiful possibilities.

I wonder if another put us both
in a third photo?

The creative act lasts
but a brief moment, a
lightning instant of give-and-take,
just long enough for you to
level the camera and to
trap the fleeting prey
in your little box.
  Henri Cartier-Bresson

How does the man in the
moon cut his hair?
  Eclipse it.

I'm not concerned with your
liking or disliking me. All I
ask is that you respect me
as a human being.

Heliconia caribaea

 Mount Helicon was the
seat of the Muses in Greek myth.
Native of the tropical Americas.

The great geniuses are those
who have kept their
childlike spirit and have
added to it breadth of
vision and experience.

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia



Congratulations to the runners & volunteers
of the Hapalua Half Marathon
who ran past my home yesterday!
Honolulu Police did a fine job.

Thanks for taking us to the races today! I like the feral feline runner. Pixie definitely is showing her great vision and wisdom along with her childlike spirit. She was too wise to run in the heat...

Cloudia said...

Ha, yes!

We had a marathon here yesterday. In the rain - which didn't deter the courageous athletes.

I aspire people who wake up early and run!

As always great if only I could remember the quotes better but that is a passed station. Still love to see your posts.

Those runners are so brave! I can't run that far!

At first I thought Pixie was loose outside. Cute kitty.
Kudos to all the runners! Have a great day and happy new week!

I thought the same as Eileen!

Thanks Dear Friends

If you ever see me running, you had better run too because something big is chasing me.

Your kitty is so sweet

Cloudia said...

Great thanks

Sharon Madson said...

They are going to have a run on my trail this month, but I don't run or ride. I just walk. LOL
Lovely photos and great quotes. Thanks Cloudia and Pixie. Happy T day.

Valerie-Jael said...

I used to love running, it was such an elating feeling. Sometimes I'm sad that I can't do it anymore, but I can still walk about, so that's good. Happy T Day to you and your Kitty, Valerie

I feel like a slug. I have missed several posts of yours this week, but real life seemed to get in the way. How nice about the marathon. I suspect this half marathon is even more demanding than the Boston marathon everyone seemed to be talking about yesterday. thanks for sharing the link. I was able to see the route and the various stations and what they offered.

What a STUNNING T photo. That looks rather painful to me, but I suspect that was great warm up. Thanks for sharing the great half marathon, the anonymous runner's quote, the cat in the grass, and Pixie, at home and relaxing, along with the lady and her drink with us for T this Tuesday, dear Cloudia.

Fun to see the race. We had a marathon in Boston on Monday, too. As always, Pixie is stunning. Happy T Day
