Meets Inside Your Head

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

I hope you find candy
in your pocket today.
From the 1997 movie
"The Postman"

Most of life is normal days,
so to be in love with them
is to be in love with life.

Tell the negative committee
that meets inside your head
to sit down and shut up.

What do dreams know
of boundaries?

The sun's up, uh huh, looks okay-
the world survives into another day,
and I'm thinking about eternity.
Some kind of ecstasy
got a hold on me.

Oh, heart, why can't you
learn that there is nothing
to do in the world
except live in it?

Lovely Portals

A L O H A From Honolulu!

How lovely are the portals
of the night, when stars
come out to watch
the daylight die.
Thomas Cole

Never wish them pain.
That's not who you are.
If they cause you pain,
they must have pain inside.
Wish them healing.
That's what they need
    Najwa Zebian

Royal Poinciana

Humility does not require
that you are blind to
your own excellence.
What matters is to be open
to the value of others as well.

Royal Poinciana
A laugh is a smile
that bursts.

I’ve learned that even

I don’t have to be one.

Have fun. Regret nothing.

The Glow

A L O H A From Honolulu!

People are like
stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine
when the sun is out, but
when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light
from within. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

X Marks the Spot
I hear the wind among the trees Playing the celestial symphonies; I see the branches downward bent, Like keys of some great instrument. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

To heal mine aching moods, Give me God's virgin woods. Clinton Scollard

Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter. Bernard Baruch

 The glow of
one warm thought is to me worth more than money. Thomas Jefferson

Common Sense Dancing

common sense, dancing.

If you plant crab apples,
don't count on harvesting
Golden Delicious.

There's always two
sides to the coin
if you have the
patience to see.

Sometimes the most urgent
and vital thing you can
possibly do is take
a complete rest.

Stone Lantern

A L O H A From Honolulu!

This present moment
never comes to be and
it never ceases to be,
In the present
moment is nirvana.
Alan Watts

- living with uncertainty -
feeling your way through life,
letting your heart guide you
like a lantern in the dark.
Dan Millman

You can’t go wrong
with the use of red;
every painting should
have red in it.
George De Groat

 The sun, the earth, love, friends,
our very breath
are parts of the banquet.
  Rebecca H. Davis

Mural Detail, Honolulu

 In hard times, people don't
want to be told to look
on the bright side.
They want to know
you're on their side.
Adam Grant

To know someone who
thinks & feels with us,
and who, though distant,
is close to us in spirit,
this makes the earth for us
an inhabited garden. Goethe


Love You,

Monday Murals 

By Lauren YS and Hiero Veiga at Dillingham Plaza Central on the Dillingham Plaza walls, this mural commands attention with its psychedelic colors and monumental size that dwarfs a box truck. The subject is the artists’ interpretation of a mo‘o, a Hawaiian shape-shifting water spirit, posed amid a menagerie that includes a duck-headed octopus, silver unicorn and golden plague doctor. With a wealth of details and mesmerizing hues, there’s something new to appreciate
with each fresh look.
