Waikiki Dusk

A  L  O  H  A !
 “When ideas evaporate, 
when shapes fade and 
forms lose their integrity, 
our imagination can create 
an outlandish setting and 
convert everything into a 
hazy, misty Turner landscape.
 ("Back garden of a dream")” 
                   Erik Pevernagie

“Gods must be crazy
Flowers must be daisy
Clouds must be hazy
Winds must be lazy
What else it could be…
My heart must be in love lately…” 
                   Heenashree Khandelwal

"I'm like an old turtle 
these days. I don't 
run wide-open 
everywhere, but at 
the end of the day, 
I'll be where I'm 
supposed to be."
              Tracy Lawrence


Thank YOU

Path To Open

A  L  O  H  A !
"Our paths are not mapped; 
they’re made.”  
         Priya Ardis

 “Sometimes the only path 
we can maneuver is 
from the bed to 
the bathroom. 
That's okay. Let 
your journey be 
what it is . 
Just keep moving.” 
         Toni Sorenson

 "I write - though perhaps it
sounds pretentious to say so - 
to make a clearing in 
the wilderness, to find out 
what I care about and 
what exactly to make of it."
                    Pico Iyer

"The sky and the 
strong wind have 
moved the spirit 
inside me till I 
am carried away 
trembling with joy."

Magic of Waikiki

A  L  O  H  A !
Dusk Hula, Waikiki Hula Mound

"I see memories out of the past,
memories that always will last
of a place beside the sea. . . "

Last gleams of day, last walk on the beach

"At night when the shadows are falling
I hear the rolling surf calling
Calling and calling to me. . . 

Moana Hotel, Kalakaua Avenue

"Your tropic nights and 
your wonderful charms
Are ever in my memory
And I recall when I held in my arms
An angel sweet and heavenly. . . 

Bill M, Artist, Waikiki

Tis for you that my heart is yearning
My thoughts are always returning
Out there to you across the sea. . ."
