Personal Reflections {In Hawaii & My Birthday}

This was the first shot I snapped on the North Shore

where I am still living happily as a beach bum in Hawaii

(ooooh I WISH this were my bum!).

Three sea turtles emerged from the sea to bask with moi the other day!

On my birthday tomorrow, I’ll be another year richer

in friendship and love, and the message

above is what echoes in my heart…

why do I keep hitting the

snooze button, ya know?

Wake up and live, friends.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Oh Michele,
    My contractor brother lives in Hawaii on the main island with his 3 children and grandson, he can build you a grass hut right where you are 🙂

    Happy Beautiful Rich Birthday, as my daughter always tells me each year, your not old, your still new!

    By the way I thought that was your bum?

    Beauty to your days ahead of you.

      Merci, Dore! That bum was an inspiration and at least 2 decades newer than mine! Peace to you.
