Compassion Cures

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Just allow love
to overwhelm your heart
and it will crowd out
every lesser thing.
Cloudia Charters

Golden Shower Tree

Everyone's got to be different.
You can't copy anybody and
end up with anything.
If you copy, it means you're working
without any real feeling. And
without feeling, whatever you do
amounts to nothing.
  Billie Holiday

Golden Shower Tree
Who does not know
the truth, is simply a fool.
Yet who Knows the Truth and
Calls it a Lie, is a Criminal
Bertolt Brecht

As I look at all the
self-defeating behaviors, I
think the biggest one is looking
outside ourselves for
the secret to happiness.
I have learned there is
no way to happiness.
Happiness itself is the way.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
"Happiness Is The Way"

Compassion will cure more
sins than condemnation.
Henry Ward Beecher


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Oh gosh... I haven't been out much at all lately because of our ongoing renovation of mom's bathroom. I love the golden shower and tabebuia trees. Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend.

I'm glad I can see a little foot on the flower, otherwise I'd fear it could be a snake.

Hawaiian trees and plants are amazingly colorful — I know these have been imported from everywhere to assure such a great variety, but i still wish we could do the same. Our plants simply bloom briefly and then revert to green in summer, bare in winter.
best, mae at
