The Color Of

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Ahoy there, mates,
it's time for Halloween,
And this fireplug's dressed up
like a pirate keen.
Nothing tops off
a jolly costume
like a jaunty hat
with a billowing plume.

Chinese proverb

to watch a sunset
and not dream.

Gratitude Vibration

A L O H A From Honolulu!

 Quiet thoughts
mend the body.
      Chinese Proverb

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there,
watching, steadfast, knowing us
in our light and dark moments,
changing forever just as we do.
Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan,
sometimes strong and full of light.
The moon understands what
it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone.
Cratered by imperfections. Tahereh Mafi

Perhaps the most persistent call
is to love one another
with compassion
and open arms,
even and especially
when we find ourselves
face to face
with people we
don't understand.
Matthew Myer Boulton

The enlightened give thanks for
what most people take for granted.
As you begin to be grateful for
what most people take for granted,
that vibration of gratitude makes you
more receptive to good in your life.
Michael Bernard Beckwith

Best and Beautiful

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The moon is a friend
for the lonely.
Carl Sandburg

 The best and most beautiful
things in this world
cannot be seen or even heard,
but must be felt with the heart. 
       Helen Keller

Tiny drops of pure delight,
Glistening in the morning light.
Cradled gently by a leaf,
A fleeting gift, a small relief.

Each drop a world unto itself,
Reflecting sky and clouds above,
A microcosm of the universe,
A gift of beauty and of love.

Genius is no more than a
childhood recaptured at will. 
Arthur Rimbaud

 Words were never invented
to fully explain the peaceful aura
that surrounds us when
we are in communion with
minds of the same thoughts.
Eddie Myers

Delights Of Age

A L O H A From Honolulu!

It is a mistake to regard age as
a downhill grade toward dissolution.
The reverse is true.
As one grows older, one
climbs with surprising strides.
George Sand

 The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. Ashley Montagu

I was walking with a friend 50 years ago. A very well dressed older gentleman approached us and told her sincerely that her beauty compelled him to honor her. He kissed her hand, and sincerely told my friend: "You are beautiful." Then went on his way....

...It is 50 years later. And
I only witnessed this. But
I remember that man,
that experience. Be like him.
Share with people. Let them know.
And perhaps in 50 years
they will still remember
the encounter and your words!

One of the delights known to age, and beyond the grasp of youth, is that of Not Going. Anthony Burgess
                                           > < } } ( ° >

If I ever go looking

for my heart's desire again,
I won't look any further 
than my own backyard;
because if it isn't there,
I never really lost it
to begin with.
             Wizard of OZ

Don't Wait

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
Don't wait for one last look
at the ocean, the sky,
the stars, or a loved one.
Go look now.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

When there is love in the heart, there are rainbows in the eyes, which cover every black cloud with gorgeous hues.
 Henry Ward Beecher

Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For as long as you're breathing, it's never too late to do some good. Maya Angelou

Jasmine flower, wise and bright, You teach us to dance,
to shine our light. To embrace the warmth,
life's golden rays, And bloom with joy,
all of our days.

 Little minds have little worries, BIG minds have no time for worries. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Break Out of the Clouds

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

Who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at midnight has been present like an archangel at the creation of light and of the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson

So let us raise a glass,

to the dinner plate hibiscus,
A mature flower,
with petals ambitious.
May your beauty always flourish,
and your colors gleam,
A reminder of nature's,
exquisite dream.

As we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
Nelson Mandela

Magic is believing in yourself.
If you can do that, you can
make anything happen.
Foka Gomez

Whenever anyone has
offended me, I try to raise
my soul so high that
the offense cannot reach it.
Rene Descartes

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie


This horizontal branch,
thick as some trees,
joins these banyan trees.
They are actually
one tree together!
