"Then read through the treasured volume
the poems of thy choice,
and lend to the rhyme of the poet,
the beauty of thy voice."
~ Henry W. Longfellow

Was It Just a Dream?
**I had a conversation with dad today. I asked him if he wanted to go home to Hawaii. Dad said if I had asked him that question before he died, he would have said yes. But he's gone now and his priorities are not relevant to the world that I or the rest of the family live in. Where his body lies is just fine here in California as it would be if it were in Hawaii.
I told dad that mom won't go to Hawaii if he's here in California. He shrugged his shoulders and gestured with his arms and hands outstretched and said, "Well, whatever your mom wants."
So, I guess the three of us are staying here in California.**
