Country Life

A  L  O  A !
"Throw your dreams into 
space like a kite, and 
you do not know what 
it will bring back, a 
new life, a new friend, a 
new love, a new country."
              Anais Nin

"Anybody can be good in the country. 
There are no temptations there."     
            Oscar Wilde

Olompali Link Hiker's Link
“I live not in myself, but I become 
Portion of that around me; and to me 
High mountains are a feeling. . ."
                Lord Byron

Waikiki is a packed human
zoo, on a tiny island, hours
away from anywhere else.
[just a BIT like the Star Wars Cantina]

Honolulu is a global pulse-point
where East & West meet.

Something's ALWAYS going on
on Oahu.

While San Francisco is
an international pulsepoint
all it's own, out here on the
rim of the Bay Area in 
Rural Marin county. . .
Well, it's a very different
life here.

I like it!

Provided I can get my
periodic dose of people
and place back home
in the islands.

Visits to San Francisco
are always exciting too,
especially driving across
the Golden Gate Bridge

And so it goes.
Life brings us 
New adventures.
And I say
Go For IT.

You Yourself Have Altered

A  L  O  H  A !
"There is nothing like 
returning to a place 
that remains unchanged
 to find the ways in which 
you yourself have altered."
                   Nelson Mandela

"Some people, no matter 
how old they get, 
never lose their beauty - 
they merely move it 
from their faces 
into their hearts. "
           Martin Buxbaum

"Never lose sight of the fact 
that the most important 
yardstick of your success 
will be how you treat 
other people - your family, 
friends, and coworkers, and 
even strangers you 
meet along the way.
                  Barbara Bush

Song of the Morning

A  L  O  H  A !
"Night and morning are 
making promises 
to each other 
which neither will 
be able to keep."
              Richard Shelton

"I'd much rather be

it's nice to be
 reminded of that."
          Sarah McLachlan

daily bread of
 the eyes."

a bird sings.”
