Paiko, “Honolulu’s botanical boutique,” is one of my most favorite shops in Hawaii. Their book, ‘OHI How to Gather and Arrange Flora, by Tamara Rigney and photographed by Mariko Reed, is a gorgeous floral feast for the eyes. I turn to it for inspiration often.

“Long walks are off, and alas, bathing in the sea; fillet steaks and apples and raw blackberries (teeth difficulties) and reading fine print. But there is a great deal left. Operas and concerts, and reading, and the enormous pleasure of dropping into bed and going to sleep, and dreams of every variety. Almost best of all, sitting in the sun–gently drowsing and there you are again–remembering.
I remember, I remember, the house where I was born….”

when there’s nothing
left to burn, be the rain
who brings everything good
back to life

When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own.
There you can be sure you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb tonight.
The night will give you a horizon further than you can see.
You must learn one thing. The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn
anything or anyone that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.

“Healing is really just practicing. Each day of your life you have an opportunity to practice letting go of what keeps you from moving forward and closer to yourself. When it seems like it’s working, keep practicing. When it seems like it’s not, keep practicing.”
