Fourth of July! Fashion & Freedom



Red, White and Blue!






"With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon who could not be happy" Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and playwright



The Fourth of July is this Thursday.  Fireworks, apple pie, swimming, sunshine, family and fun is all wrapped up in this patriotic and special holiday.  More importantly, we need to take time and be grateful, and to reflect on our forebearers who built this glorious country through sweat, hard work and perseverance.   We live in a free land because of them.  We must also remember and honor those who have and those who still today fight for our freedom worldwide.  We are forever and eternally indebted. 

While you take a moment and count your blessings, let us also contemplate on what to wear on this sparkler and fireworks filled day.   Of course, anything red, white and blue.

There you have it.  Are you ready for the 4th of July?  I hope so.  Be sure to sport your red, white and blue in festive ways.  By hopeful, upbeat and never let negative energy, words or anger cloud your day.  This is your life, and your time so don't waste it with the gloomy verbiage that surrounds us in social media and with the media at large.  Be a spirit of joy and spread wisdom rather than hate. Thus, enjoy the day, embrace your friends, be happy, show love and celebrate your life and this great nation. 


"The American, by nature, is optimistic;  He is experimental, an inventor and a builder who builds best when called upon to build greatly."  President John F. Kennedy







Happy 4th of July! 


Until Next Time!

Home for the Holiday


"With freedom comes responsibility." Eleanor Roosevelt
Parades, apple pie, contests, hamburgers, friends, family, and fireworks are the essential ingredients for a celebratory Fourth of July.  This year will be unforgettable as the Covid 19 virus has changed the celebration landscape.  The large gatherings, festivities and essential mix of fun are on the shelf across the country. We ourselves are accustomed to celebrating in the islands viewing a parade, taking walks, wildlife adventures, exquisite dinners and viewing incredible fireworks that fill the sky.  Though this is year is unique, never fret. 
We have an opportunity to slip back in time and create an old fashioned Fourth of July at home.  Many of you are wondering what to do.  Well, think back to when you were little.  What did you do then? 
Growing up in the Northwest, we had sparklers, black snakes, and fountains to light off in the driveway. We attended barbecues with family or friends and watched…

Life is a Gift

A River Called Life



"Life is a precious gift.  Use your day wisely." 

Life is a river.  A thriving, glorious flowing body of water that twists and turns filled with fish, beavers, small creatures, birds, eagles, violent eddies, rough waters, and calm pools. Or in our case as human beings doing the best they can as they spend each day rambling down the river of life.  An actual river flows downhill from the force of gravity.  The waters can be wide and deep or shallow to walk across.  This river can be called a stream, creek, or brook.  A once serene rushing river can turn into a flooding nightmare covering land, filling houses, and changing landscapes.  Just like humanity spinning towards the unknown.   
Life can be tranquil at moments and then burst into a storm of anger, disbelief, or tragedy.   A life is easily compared to a roaring river as transitions in our world are extremely rapid.  It can be difficult for the human mind to assess what has transpired.   The result is be…
