Fill the Hour

"To fill the hour--
that is happiness."
Live Peace. 
"E Noho i ka Maluhia"

Looking forward to 2013 with open heart, fingers on the keypad and camera shutter. Join me on this creative jaunt... :) ~♥~

"Teach us delight in simple things." 
Rudyard Kipling

Before the sun, a little bit of tangled moonlight
Dusting and great light

What We Are

"Happiness is inward, and not outward; 
and so it does not depend on 
what we have, but on what we are."

"Go slowly, breathe and smile."

Ice this morning. Cold and beautiful... Seemed to take the sun a bit longer to rise and stretch over the ridge. Happy shadows extended over the deck... Rays of goodness. Smiles across the horizon...

Uttered or Unexpressed

"Prayer is the soul's sincere desire
uttered or unexpressed; 
the motion of a hidden fire 
that trembles in the breast."

"It is the nature of grace always 
to fill spaces that have been empty."

Life is too short. Hurry up and love more. <3 So the sun glowed then was swallowed by the clouds.

"You never really understand a person 
until you consider things from his point of view." 
~ Harper Lee

Above the rooftop,
even the trees
reach out
to the morning.

"When you wholeheartedly adopt a 
'with all your heart' attitude 
and go all out with the positive principle,
you can do incredible things."

What You Believe In

“You need all kinds of influences, 
including negative ones, 
to challenge what you believe in.” 

Color Joy
Moon's dawn light
Kolo takes over the guest room

And this morning
as I watch the sky
Kolo takes over my guest room
in the same manner
She takes over my heart.

With the moon
and the sun,
and all the colors that come,
My life goes on.

Breathing in the beauty of this dawn.  Breathing out love. Good morning!

"Moonlight is sculpture"
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Dozens of stars... And this very holy December moon.

7:08 AM Just a beautiful dawn. Colors of orange anticipation and possibilities.

7:13 AM On our morning walks, my dog Kolo sniffs and I click.

On this day in 1955, a historic day for American Civil Rights, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus. Her celebration:

Rosa Parks once said this beautiful thing: "Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others."
