Kindness and Tenacity

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Hope will never be silent. 
Harvey Milk 

A man who changed the world
through kindness and tenacity,
making friends not enemies.
Today's "activists" could learn
MUCH from his Wise Aloha

Fiery words quick and dark
Leave a wound that lingers and sparks. Silent long breath, a moment to take, Mends the bridge
before it breaks.

Pink! Oh Pink!
Tell me, dear friend
What do YOU think?

People often say, with pride, I'm not interested in politics. They might as well say, I'm not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future or any future. If we mean to keep any control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics.
Martha Gellhorn

I will not follow where

the path may lead, but

I will go where there is no path,

and I will leave a trail. Muriel Strode


Love You,
Cloudia &
"Friday Girl" Pixie
[ She says to call her ' Friday Girl' today! ]

Flowers in your hair

Martha Gelhorn is right. Sadly.
Hi to you and Friday Girl. I hope you both have a wonderful weekend.

Andrew said...

Very wise words from Martha Gellhorn, and I expect I'll use them one day.

Cloudia said...

Enjoyed reading you both. Thanks!

Friday Girl requires a nap.

Now if words could just be translated into action even then it's about what they mean.

...I hope that she doesn't trip!

Wise words, I agree with Martha Gellhorn's quote.
Friday Girl looks adorable as always.
Take care, have a great day and happy weekend.

Martha Jane Orlando said...

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, Cloudia!

Barbara Rogers said...

Definitely keeping Harvey Milk's quote, thanks. Smiles and flowers in one's hair are great! Pats on the head to Friday's Girl, and hopes your weekend is just right!

Wise words today, Cloudia. ;-)

Kindness that won't quit -- that's a good way to be.
And every day is better with a little Fleetwood Mac. Thanks.

Love your photography and poetry!

The 'fiery words' speak to me today.

Anvilcloud said...

It's not easy to find a balance between fiery words and taking such a long breath that you miss your opportunity to speak.

Cloudia said...

We so enjoyed lingering over these great comments today. I want to thank each of you very much for looking in. Aloha

I love the pic of the woman wearing the Tiare flower in her hair. It reminds me of my favorite airline Air Tahiti Nui.

Jim said...

The smile made me smile.

I've never seen that original version of "Go Your Own Way". They certainly improved on it over the years.
