Have I mentioned that I collect Aloha shirts?? In fact, I collect shirts in general, especially made in the U.S.A. aloha shirts. Any size. Any color. I just gotta have ’em. I got this silky number last week. It’s kind of cheesy, and it’s made in China, but it’s perfect. It has 5 fabulous wooden buttons and it fits. I might keep it as is, or cut it up…. (so far I haven’t cut up any of my shirts…). I have a friend in need of some Aloha love, so I gathered up some shirts which I am hesitant to part with, but , I trust that she will respect and love them properly , I will send them to her with my blessing…..so today, I say good bye to them…..

“It keeps right on going,” he said, guessing my thought. “All of me is Illustrated. Look.” He opened his hand . On his palm was a rose, freshly cut, with drops of crystal water among the soft pink petals. I put my hand out to touch it, but it was only an Illustration……..
