Our Real Blessings

Asheville, North Carolina

"Our real blessings often appear to us
in the shape of pains, losses, and disappointments;
but let us have patience,
and we soon shall see them
 in their proper figures."
Joseph Addison

The world spins, we will survive. I will keep hope alive. Now is a good time for me to invest in myself.

At the Other Side

"Your way begins at the other side. 
Become the sky."

That Golden Moment when the sun crests, everything is awash with a sheen of light and grace.

❥ Ka oli o Kumu John Keola Lake

E Ala E

E ala e, ka lā i ka hikina,
Awaken/Arise, the sun in the east,

I ka moana, ka moana hohonu,
From the ocean, the deep ocean,

Pi‘i ka lewa, ka lewa nu‘u,
Climbing to heaven, the highest heaven,

I ka hikina, aia ka lā, e ala e!
In the east, there is the sun, arise!
