Hawai'i Tropical Botanical Garden

Hawai'i Tropical Botanical Garden
Originally uploaded by katcoyle.

I can hardly believe we went to a place where flowers like this grow. We had a great trip, a true vacation. Felix is just old enough to appreciate travel. He did good and delighted in saying "I wanna go Hawaii". Even though we kept reminding him we were in Hawaii, he seemed to think that Hawaii was a form of travel and not a destination.
This afternoon I feel fuzzy and tired and want to stay indoors away from the freeways that dominate my neighborhood. Still, it is nice to be home (kind of). I kept imagining myself living in Hawaii and wondering if I would still knit. The humidity did not inspire me to pick up my needles. I brought a cotton yarn project but only worked on it once when I woke up at 4 in the morning excited to be where I was but needing to pass the time till it was decent to wake up the guys.

This is the 143rd BLOG I've posted this comment on today:

As a veteran of Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq...over these last few months...I've wondered to myself, "Is it possible to reduce the amount of hatred and violence in our world?"

Last week, before going to sleep, I began asking myself a lot of WHAT IF questions.

The central theme behind my thoughts are neither anti-war or pro-religion. My words are not meant to inspire scenes of flag-burning or political protest signs.

Basically, unless someone and everyone start talking about Peace...

Even if it's just for two short minutes...

It's possible that an unstoppable firestorm of hatred may one day burn its way across our entire planet.

Instead of pointing out those differences which separate mankind...

It's my hope that the humanity within all of us will somehow prevail...
