Joy That Is Shared

Halona Blow Hole

"A joy that is shared
is a joy made double
."
~ English Proverb

Just off Kalanianole Highway, Oahu's Blow Hole is a lava tube where on a wild and rough morning like today, the ocean rises and bursts up to the sky.

Creativity is Magic

Lanikai Beach, Kailua, Oahu

"Sometimes I think creativity is magic;
it's not a matter of finding an
idea,
but allowing the idea to find you."
~
Maya Lin

Lanikai, just south of Kaneohe: one of Hawaii's best beaches... Incomparable beauty... fine white sand...clear aqua ocean... arching palm trees. The beach where ancient Hawaiian royalty played... And at dawn today, life begins anew.

Loveliest Smile

"Autumn.. the year's last, loveliest smile."
~
William Cullen Bryant

An overcast sky today. Leaves are changing, so my mountain quilt is getting more vibrant... Greens are turning yellow. I love it when the reds and burgundies come in with a vengeance.

Soothed & Healed

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed,
and to have my senses put in tune once more."
~
John Burroughs

I don't know if I'll get a sunrise this morning, but cloud action along my ridge is wild. Fast changing light. Swirling, dream-like wisps of white and gray.

Fill Your Heart

"Fill your heart with
as much Love
as you can,
and don't hold it in."
~ Carl Perkins

Steven captured me this morning watching the sunrise. I love this photo and love him...

Follow Your Heart

"Follow your heart, your instincts.
People might try to dissuade you
from your passion,
but no one can
live your life
but you."
~ Olympia Dukakis


The pre-sunrise sky defies description... My camera can't capture the beauty, fire, and colors.

The Glow

"The glow of one warm thought
is to me worth more than
money."
~
Thomas Jefferson


Looking at the sky... Feels wonderful to be alive... All this beauty is humbling. I have so much love and gratitude in my heart.

Wishing you all, good things...

Own Light

"Each one prays to God
according to his own light."
~
Mahatma Gandhi

All calm, yet alive. Before the ball of fire, a beautiful orange and lavender sky. Surreal delight. All the shades of goodness and hope.
