Am You Let

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Birds sing after a storm;
why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them? Rose Kennedy

It was the rainbow
gave thee birth, and left thee all her lovely hues. W. H. Davies

It is said that if you
hold it tight Along with your thoughts,
and dreams at night Your wishes will
come true, for sure.

This amulet has
magic powers. Rabbit a symbol
of Spring,
beginnings, and
new things.

Many eyes go
through the meadow, but
few see the flowers in it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whatever it is you're seeking won't come in the form you're expecting. Haruki Murakami


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia


I've topped the wind-swept
heights with easy grace Where never lark nor
ever eagle flew— And, while with silent
lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed
sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and
touched the face of God.
John Gillespie Magee Jr.

Joy Rise

A L O H A From Honolulu!

I will not let
circumstances define me
I will not let problems
weigh me down
I will rise above to live my joy
And flourish in adversity

Take It Or Leaf It
We need the flower's
beauty to inspire,
And we need the
leaf's green strength 
 to nourish and protect.
Together, they weave a
more beautiful world

Bee on a Crown Flower 
The Crown-flower queen, In robes of lilac blue With her stems of attendants, And Bees, around her head. The little bees are glad, For they know that she is good, And the Crown-flower is happy, In their neighborhood
Together they endure
In harmony and peace.
The crown herself is crowned
By her golden bees.

Desert Rose
Politeness is
the flower of humanity.
Joseph Joubert

Only the weak are cruel.
Gentleness can only be
expected from the strong.
Leo Buscaglia


Love You,

Remembered In Dreams

A L O H A From Honolulu!

You are born to fly, and
in dreams you remember
the soul has wings
    Robert Moss

Bird: Manu O Ku Link
Happy, engaged, and
compassionate people are
more likely to be intelligent
than their mercurial,
insensitive counterparts.
Alex Berezow

King Protea

When words are
both true and kind, 
they can change 
the world.

The only lasting beauty is
the beauty of the heart

Far more important than
the tribulations and heartaches,
the thrills, merriment, and
pleasures of life is what you
learn from it all. It isn't the tunnel
we pass through that matters,
it's what emerges on the other side.
Richelle E. Goodrich

-And we are all
emerging day by day,
as Pixie points out.
How are YOU doing?


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

In Golden Flight

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Blazing in the sunset skies,
Heraldic creature of delight,
What are you, what are your eyes,
What is the mystery of your flight?

Your wings are wide over seas,
Your body a golden flame,
such a creature of mystery,
Vision of the spirit's Name.

You float on air, to
soar above the mountain's height,
You are a symbol of fire,
Sign of the soul's delight.

You spirit of freedom,
Of soul's unconquered will,
You are the herald of Coming,
Messenger of New Day.

Light that shines in darkness,
Hope that never dies,
Love that conquers all things,
Eternal Spirit Rise.

Today well lived makes
every yesterday a dream of
happiness, and every tomorrow
a vision of hope. Look well,
therefore, to this day.
Indian Proverb

><{ { (° >


A Good friend once told me:
"THESE are the Good Old Days"
All these years later
I Know That He Was Right!

So now I'm telling you:
"THESE are
the Good Old Days"

Now Go
And Make Us Right!

The Cat Who Loves Justice

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The moon is alive
because of the darkness-
how could we ever be afraid
of something that gives
the stars a home?
Laura Chouette

Don't punch
at the darkness,
be a light.
James Rozoff

Even more beautiful
than the Islands themselves
are her people!

Away from busy streets
Where tourists roam,
There are quiet side streets
Where locals still live.
As our Royals once did.
They're not as glamorous,
But full of memories and life.
In the morning, you'll see
Our kids head off to school.
Evening families gather
For dinner and a game.

There's a community
On these side streets,
That's hard to find elsewhere. So next time you're in Waikiki,
Take some time to explore
Beyond the tourist trail.
I'll see You There!

Pixie Loves Justice
Cats are excellent
judges of character.

They can distinguish

good from bad people.

A cat may look at a king.

That she is patient with me,

always expecting the best

gives me opportunity

to grow day by day.

My little angel - or am I hers?

We'll call it a tie


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia
