Basking In The Glory of the Light






A single plumeria on the rock wall in front of me as my husband and I sat near the water's edge to watch the sun go down. Not far behind us is a plumeria tree and this flower just happened to be there in front of me enjoying the last rays of the day's light.

Simple beauty to behold in that single moment of time.

Celebrating the mundane!

Pretty in Pink






Wherever there is light,
there is shadow.
Wherever there is length,
there is shortness.
Wherever there is white,
there is black.
Just like these nothing can exist alone.

~Heart of Buddha


Happy Easter to one and all!

Honing the Skills of Observation










When eating, be mindful of eating.
When walking, of walking.
When smiling, of smiling.
~Heart of Buddha

On my walks, the forest is full of eucalyptus trees. Which, for me, makes my walk all the more beautiful as I notice the variations in colors and patterns each leaf that falls to the ground displays. Out of all the people who visit this area on a daily basis, I often wonder how many, if any take the time to notice such details? For each and every leaf is different from the other-no two are alike. In my eyes, each is a small work of brilliant art. 

If you stop to take the time to notice the details of life by observation, that act alone gets you closer to learning how to 'just be'. One never fully arrives at that state-it is always a work in progress.

The art of to 'just be' is something that requires a mindfulness and a willingness to commit to a daily practice. It doesn't mean that you beat yourself up every time you don't make it a daily practice. It's just something that you strive for. And, over time, you may find yourself getting a bit better at it.

All you have to do is, 'Just Be'.

From Above







Flying over a golf course near the airport at Honolulu in the early morning are some wonderful coconut tree shadows. The beautiful turquoise water cut into by the strikingly verdant land. You have to be quick to catch a moment like this.

Unassuming Beauty





Little ferns on the side bank of a trail. Easy to miss if all you are thinking about is what's ahead. Take the time to stop. Look at what's in front of you. In this moment-just be.
