Hawaii -

I consider this morning why there is such meaning here for me.  In addition to floating over the place where the molten lava from the center of the earth rises, the ocean waters here are so fresh and warm.  I consider how we are here, floating in the middle of the ocean as on a raft and I am entranced.   This book I am reading The Architecture of Happiness probably explains for me why this works so well.  This is the architecture that works for me.

Words from The End of Faith by Sam Harris:

    "Consider it:  every person you've ever met, every person you will pass on the street today, is going to die.  Living long enough, each will suffer the loss of his friends and family.  All are going to lose everything they love in this world.  Why would one want to be anything but kind to them in the meantime?"


Enjoy a parasol of kindness.   When we arrived, a woman handed us her snorkel and mask saying she didn't want to take them with her on the plane.  Today is our day to pass the snorkel and mask on to another.   May your day be equally rich, fragrant, and warm.
