A New Language

A L O H A From Honolulu!

We really are surrounded by heroes.
You do not know the challenges
faced or the tragedies survived.
They walk the same street
right next to us, yet
we never know them.

- But if we did,
we would be humbled.
We really are surrounded
by heroes. We all
face our common mortality.
Lighten the load if you can.
Especially for yourself. 

Invent a new language
anyone can understand.
Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Every morning has
a unique story.
There are always some seeds
of possibilities waiting to sprout.
Amit Ray, 

God Himself, sir, does not propose to judge a person until their life is over. Why should you and I? Samuel Johnson ᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽᬽ

To Each of Us

A L O H A From Honolulu!

True wisdom comes to each of us
when we realize how little
we understand about life,
ourselves, and the world around us.

Your task is not to
seek for love,

- but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

Politeness is the
flower of humanity.
Joseph Joubert

Acknowledging the good 
that you already have 
in your life is the 
foundation for 
all abundance.
      Eckhart Tolle

Common Goldeneye Female

Love more. Worry less!

Where Ducks Are Taller Than People

A L O H A From Honolulu!

He broke through the
barriers of the skies.
  William Herschel

You thought the artist
had no money?
Me Too!
There is ALWAYS
another interpretation.

When you are really rich,

you do not mind

coming across as

poor or broke.

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Not needing to impress,
That IS rich:
Having your own.
Only strivers must affect
the illusion of wealth.

Dogs have no money.
Isn't that amazing?
They're broke their entire lives.
But they get through.
You know why dogs have
no money? No pockets.
  Jerry Seinfeld

Fall in love with
taking care of yourself.
Fall in love with
the path of deep healing.
Fall in love with becoming
the best version of yourself but
with patience, with compassion
and respect to your own journey.
     S. McNutt
Only then
will you truly be
taller than a duck!

"Tourists" Archive Shot 2013
There are times when one
is with their camera that
beautiful and magical things
will come into view. Do not
let them slip by for they must
be shared with the
now and tomorrow. Christopher Paul Flateau

"Triangle Sam"
There's a pizza place
near where I live that
sells only slices. In the back,
you can see a guy tossing a
triangle in the air.
Steven Wright

If it be a lie, laugh at it.

Next Magic

A L O H A From Honolulu!

I never get tired of
waiting for the
next magic.
Marlon Brando

The future belongs
to those who see possibilities
before they become obvious.
John Sculley

If we make ourselves
receptive and alert, we
may get help from
our future selves.
They are trying to
communicate good ideas
to us back through time.
Jack Sarfatti,

Let us see what
love can do.
William Penn

What Will Free Us

A L O H A From Honolulu!

All the world
is made of faith,
and trust,
and pixie dust.
J.M. Barrie

The best way to nurture
love for yourself is to
love others well.

The best way to nurture
love for others is to
love yourself well.

is what will free us
     Jacqui Lewis 

Tropical plant named after
Mount Helicon in Greece,
Home to the Muses.
 These showy, colorful Bracts
are not the flowers which
are very small, hiding inside. 

The words you speak
become the house
you live in.

Half of our mistakes in life arises from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel. John Churton Collins

A L O H A From Honolulu!

In a time of deceit,
telling the truth is 
a revolutionary act.
            George Orwell

We must have the stubbornness
to accept our gladness in
the ruthless furnace
of this world.
   Jack Gilbert

Angry people do not
make smart choices.
Neutralize their damage
by being different
than they are.

May brooks and trees
and singing hills
 join in the chorus too,
and every gentle
wind that blows
 send happiness to you.
    Irish Blessings

Beginning today

treat everyone you meet
as if they will be dead by midnight.
Extend them all the care,
kindness, and understanding
you can muster.
Your life will never
be the same again.
    Og Mandino

 Never be haughty to the humble
or humble to the haughty.
Jefferson Davis

just singing in the rain,
what a glorious feeling,
