Fence Sort Of

A  L  O  H  A !
This building has a 
false-front of mesh;
I like that we can see 
the Honolulu sky through it 
here at the corner.




“The fence that makes good neighbors
 needs a gate 
to make good friends”

Thanks for looking through!

Idiolect

Idiolect: a person's individual speech pattern.


A  L  O  H  A   !
Chief Running Cloud

“ How very little can be done
 under the spirit of fear. ”
               Florence Nightingale










" Can anything be so elegant 
as to have few wants, 
and to serve them 
one's self? "
               Ralph Waldo Emerson








" It's never too late
 to have a 
happy childhood. "
                 Berke Breathed







Our photos
and our words
speak in each
our idiolect.

Yet somehow
we play,
console,
and grow
together.
Perfect Understanding

in the rain.

Thank YOU!

Waikiki Smiles

A   L  O  H  A !
 Click to Enlarge Wonderful Smile!

" A smile
 will gain you
 ten more years 
of life. "
             Chinese Proverb












Hawaii People are 
SPECIAL!

Why does this man at work
look happier
than the visitors on holiday
below?







“ Over all crowds 
there seems to float a 
vague distress, 
an atmosphere of 
pervasive melancholy. . . "
                                   Émile Zola, 
                                         The Attack on the Mill and Other Stories













The distance between us
 shouldn't matter
 because 
at the end of the day, 
we're all 
under the same sky....

Sometimes when I am
among others
I reflect on the 
strangeness
of this delusion
that we are
strangers.

Thank YOU
for visiting
Friend!

And Then We FLEW -


" The Wright brothers 
flew 
right through 
the smoke screen 
of impossibility. "
                 Charles Kettering

[()]

Entropy, Gravity,
Change & Time
hold us fast
hold us down.

But something
in the human spirit
soars
at all ages
in all conditions

Until the day
we follow it
Higher.

This is my call
across the skies
of Our Friendship.

Keep on fellow flyer!

Upward to the Dawn-

             Warmly, cloudia


Our Tribe

A  L  O  H  A !

“ Sometimes 
the most important thing 
in a whole day 
is 
the rest we take 
between 
two deep breaths. ” 
                         Etty Hilsum







" Everyone likes 
to feel part 
of a tribe, 
nurtured 
and celebrated. "
                    Megan Quinn








" Five guys on the court 
working together 
can achieve more 
than 
five talented individuals 
who come and go 
as individuals. "
                Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Something Special happens
when we come together.

Wearing these bodies,
experiencing
our own viewpoint,
is a solitary pursuit.

Infants, we learn
that those
are Others
not things.

Then we learn
to build walls
or welcomes.

Somethings Special Happens
when we come together,
Men at play,
fish gotta swim,
circle of bloggy pals.

De - LIGHTFUL!

Thanks SO much
for being a big part
of our world.
