Dance Of The Palm Trees

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Your character is
your guardian divinity. Heraclitus

Nu'uanu Stream *
What a joy it is to feel the soft,
springy earth under my feet
once more, to follow grassy roads
that lead to ferny brooks where I
can bathe my fingers in a cataract
of rippling notes, or to clamber
over a stone wall into green
fields that tumble and roll
and climb in riotous gladness!
Helen Keller

Royal Poinciana
There's nothing so kingly
as kindness, and
nothing so royal
as truth
Alice Cary,

The dance of the palm trees,
the oceans calling,
the first rays of sun,
and heaven is here.
Michael Dolan

The coconut trees,
lithe and graceful,
crowd the beach like a minuet
of slender elderly virgins
adopting flippant poses. William Manchester

We may not be their favorite,
but we are their blessing.

I have a thing about angels.
I believe in them.
I feel like I have
a guardian angel.
I think everybody has one.
  Sheryl Lee


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

It flows out of Nuʻuanu Valley, one of the most historically significant neighborhoods in Hawaii, going back to ancient, pre-contact times, home to many legends, stories and historical events.
