Mauna...


Today, I watched a massive cloud bank hover above the length of the Ko'olau Mountain Range like an even more massive mountain range extending even further into the Heavens.

Tonight, when the Moon emerged, the Cloud Mauna was still there above Mānoa Valley. In the Moonlight, however, she rose into the Heavens a Beautifully snow covered mountain.

Strong. Powerful. Resilient. Beautiful. This is what I see, not with my eyes, but with my Heart...

Swept...


Twilight Descended...
While the Sweeping Rains...
Caressed the Ocean...
Quietly and Gently...
As You...
So Swept Me...

Smack...


My New Little Rock Friend told me someone was complaining and talking smack behind his back. I didn't know what he was talking about until I put him up against the bathroom mirror. There we have it...

Creation...


She Creates...
Powerfully...
Lovingly...
Relentlessly...
In the Divine...
And I Love Her...

No Words...


I Sometimes Wonder...
What Words Shall Pour Forth...
When I See You Again...
In Heaven...
Or Whether There Will Be...
Any Words at All...
Only a Flood of Tears...
Which Will Silently Say...
Everything That Needs...
To Be Said...

Memorable...


I used to think that Life's most memorable moments were the large and grandiose events. The major turning points. Major life changes. Major decisions and crossroads. Births. Deaths. Marriages. Relationships. Jobs. Careers. Awards. Recognitions. Milestones that many of us measure the success or set-backs, and sometimes seemingly failures, of our Life against. 

I have come to realize that the most memorable events, and most treasured, are actually the little occurrences, often the benign, the seemingly mundane, but all of which have one thing in common. A moment of shared Love and Humanity. Bonding. Emotion. A Sharing and Connection of Spirit. Not just Hearing, but Truly Listening. Affirmations. A good Laugh.  A good Cry. A warm Hug. A soft Kiss. Expressions of Love. Simply watching the Natural World with silent Awe and Wonderment.  Looking not at people and appearances, but at Souls and Depth. 

I am making it a point now in Life to pursue the small things. The truly Meaningful. The Memorable. The Healing. So at the end when I look back, my Life will be filled with all of the Memories that make this World, and my Life, so Crazy Insanely Unbelievably Beautiful...

Friends...


I was standing around waiting for a room to open by Honolulu Hale last week trying to fight off a dark cloud that had descended upon me earlier in the week. As I stood there in silence, I felt like someone was watching me.

I glanced down towards the landscaping, rocks, plants and bushes and there was this little guy looking up at me. I picked him up and asked him why he looked so surprised.

He said he was waiting his whole life for someone to notice him and was so surprised and happy that I acknowledged him. The dark cloud lifted off of me.

I let him know that it was truly I who had been waiting for him my whole Life...
