You Are So Precious


You are so precious.

Don’t ever think otherwise.

Flowers bloom from dirt.

Children of a Neverending Summer


The children of a neverending summer jumping off a stepladder into the ocean. As adults, life can come at us hard. Children remind us to live in the present moment. They clearly define mindfulness by the way they live. Beautiful Haleiwa, Hawaii with my friend Mike who added comments on the moment. We reminisced when we were children. We could relate on how these children felt, not wanting the moment to end, playing until the last drop of sunlight.

Racing Against Time Part VIII


I’ve always been racing against time. Sometimes, I just need to pause and taste it. Death will keep coming for us. Every now and then, we need to laugh at it.

Love My Aquarium!


Didn’t sleep much. Replaced the lights and cleaned my 55-gallon tank in the early morning. Got several Neon Tetras in it.

The Rest Is Bonus


I picked a flower.

It’s all I have at this time.

The rest is bonus.
