i am a BIG believer in options. i believe that having choices is always the best situation. i like to think of options as multiple pathways to unimagined adventures … which means, so many new ways to be who we’re supposed to be.

i also believe that we create our options – some manifest because the mischievous powers-that-be in this universe like to play with the all-knowing, all-powerful, teenie-weenie humans who think they run this world; and some options manifest because we put the time, energy, love and voice to what we hope to experience.

right now, i’m wishing i had better options in the professional part of my life. and, yes, i’m putting it out there into the universe that options are desired … but, in the meantime, i am trying to learn as much from the less-than-ideal situation i am in currently and hoping that these life lessons will create better options later on down the road. *sigh*


but, as far as home goes, i’ve far-and-away decided that i love our home and that is the happily-ever-after option that i choose!

we “puppy” sat for friends over the past week in manoa. as much as shortstack LOVED having a dog (Coal was quite a distinguished and welcoming gentleman and had the cutest lab eyes and personality wrapped up with great dane height and weight!) and a yard, it was SOOOOOO GOOD to get home, in our bed, under our sheets, traipsing through my kitchen (panda gave me permission to call it “mine”). *sigh … this time, a good one!*

we did enjoy some beautiful sunsets and rainbows in manoa. did some cloud watching, and bbq-ing. wondered at what the police helicopter was up to. read some stories in a bunk bed. took some doggy strolls. watered some plants barefoot in the yard. picked tart and juicy limes and cut fresh rosemary. fed some fish. took a nap on the grass. life options in manoa were definitely wonderful … they just weren’t home.

here’s to hoping that all of you have options in your life …
