Compassion Cure

A  L  O  H  A !

" Compassion will cure
 more sins than
                             Henry Ward Beecher

" True benevolence, or compassion,
 extends itself through the whole 
of existence and sympathizes with 
the distress of every creature 
capable of sensation. "
                 Joseph Addison

“ He could tell by the 
way animals walked 
that they were keeping
 time to some kind of music. 
Maybe it was the song 
in their own hearts 
that they walked to. ” 
              Laura Adams Armer


Thank YOU!

Tower Rainbow

make something

wasn’t before. "

Stump Clump

A  L  O  H  A !
 How disheartening
to see this stump.

It had been
a lovely tree I
saw most every day-

What fierce blossoms,
and welcome shade it
gave us for years

 How long does it take
for a dead, stump
in dry dirt
to come to life?
[ look at that top pic again ]

It's just been a 
couple months it seems!

This blossom lantern, depending 
from a Rainbow Shower Tree knows:

" The best time to plant a tree
is twenty years ago,
the second best time
is today. "
                 Chinese Proverb

Thank You
for resting a while!

Dues and Choices

A L O H A !
" Mistakes are part of
 the dues one pays 
for a full life. "

                Sophia Loren

“ We all carry within us 
places of exile, 
our crimes, our ravages. 
Our task is not to 
unleash them 
on the world; 

- it is to transform them 
in ourselves and others.” 
Albert Camus
