Hawaii Photo of the Day

A  L  O  H  A !  

Tin How Temple

A  L  O  H  A !
 “Travel makes one modest. 
You see what a tiny 
place you occupy 
in the world.” 
      Gustave Flaubert







Into busy, crowded, 
jumbled, historic, 
San Francisco Chinatown!
As mysterious as a 
pyramid tower disappearing 
into the fog. . . looking for
the Taoist temple. . . Tien Hau















1910 - The 'New' Building
"Right place, but this does NOT
look like a temple." You might say.
But long years enjoying Honolulu's
Chinatown have taught me:
Look at the little door at the 
side!












I know there will be a LONG walk
up many stairs, to the temple itself
on the top floor. Here we see
European tourists ready to leave.






I was up there: Top Floor.
Oh the art I saw
and could not 
photograph!


You can read more about
the oldest Chinese Temple
in America  Here.

Though some Honolulu
temples might be older,
they were founded in the
Kingdom Of Hawaii,
NOT America. So I
concede the honorific
with respects
to each place:
My former longtime home
and my becoming
New One.

Taking 'Bout HummngBird

A  L  O  H  A !
“Some of my old memories 
feel trapped in amber 
in my brain, lucid and 
burning, 










- while others 
are like the wing beat 
of a hummingbird, 
an intangible, 
ephemeral blur.” 
               Mira Bartok










"Hummingbird darts
 lightly through the world, 
spreading its message 
of joy and beauty, and 
teaching us to appreciate
 the wonder and magic 
of everyday existence. -











-Hummingbird brings 
the gift of joy
Learn to laugh
 and be happy."
Unknown
