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: a person's individual speech pattern.

 under the spirit of fear. ”

Our photos
and our words

our idiolect.

Yet somehow
we play,
and grow

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 

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

“ 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
at the end of the day, 
we're all 
under the same sky....

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


Thank YOU
for visiting

And Then We FLEW -

" The Wright brothers 
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
at all ages
in all conditions

Until the day
we follow it

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 
the rest we take 
two deep breaths. ” 
                         Etty Hilsum

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

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


Something Special happens
when we come together.

Wearing these bodies,
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.


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