Risk It

A  L  O  H  A !
Even though we all 
long for connection, 
we are afraid that getting 
involved closely with others 
will result in obligations. 

I have decided to risk 
expressing my Aloha 
for others. And if I'm asked to
do something I'm unable to do 
to Simply let my no be no. 

One runs the risk that others 
will interpret one's behavior 
in a negative way and 
that is their right. 
But if you are 
authentic: go ahead.

Connections can last
for a second
or a lifetime.
Risk It!

May love and peace
spread and heal.
May it start with a
quiet joy you
allow yourself to feel.

Ah, the simple joys of life;
Hot shower, cold beer, 
and warm welcome.
How can every day 
be routine, yet 
uniquely wonderful?

 There is a world of difference 
between acknowledging aging 
and surrendering to  it.

Today, I'm giving my 
quote collection a rest.
Today's three captions
are my own thoughts
as are the photos.
Hope you enjoy them!

Immortal Creativity

A  L  O  H  A !
 “To the attentive eye, 
each moment of the year 
has its own beauty, and 
in the same field, it beholds, 
every hour, a picture which 
was never seen before, 
and which shall never 
be seen again”
           Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Enjoy doing nothing, 
and you can enjoy 
doing anything. Enjoy 
having nothing, and 
you can enjoy 
whatever you have."
        Ralph Marston

“Fallen leaves on the 
ground are the golden song 
of immortal creativity.”
