Elephant.ade ♥️🐘

I can’t stop thinking about the remarkable 10 year-old girl I met at The Honolulu Zoo. She had a cute little lemonade stand by the elephants and was selling bracelets. I soon discovered this was more than just a shopping opportunity.  

Here’s her story: One day Téa Malia Megill spent the day at the zoo with her family. She learned that the elephants are on their way to extinction. She was shocked and saddened by this fact. So much that she wanted to do something to make a difference and help the elephants. Téa started Elephant.ade with her parents to raise money and bring awareness in an effort to save the elephants. Shop for a cause at Elephantade.org to get your own, handmade elephant bracelet. 100% of the proceeds are donated to help save the elephants from extinction.

Art Matters...


Collecting ART is addictive but never regrettable. With ART, the regret I do have is from the pieces I talked myself out of. I have a few sad stories of inexpensive ART I passed on and now the artist's work is spendy. Buying ART is not extravagant or reserved for the wealthy. For me, it's just I have my priorities straight. Think about how much ART you could own if you didn't have cable, that unused landline and you limited the times a barista made your coffee.

When embarking on collecting art - start small. Buying student art is an inexpensive way to get original art. Its like listening to a talented yet unsigned musician in a dive bar prior to making it it big. You very well could be investing in and therefore encouraging the ART world's next big thing. Buying local art enriches your community and supports the local ART scene. Incorporating original ART in your home adds an unmatched warmth, texture and depth to your space.

ART MATTERS. I know my life is richer because of the ART I own and cherish. Thank you once again, Neicy Frey, Artist. I adore this elegant floral work you created. It hangs in our entry way and when I look at  it, I'm happy💛 It's true, money can't buy happiness, but it can buy ART and it's kinda the same thing.

Charmed to make your acquaintance...

RIP dear John Reed
What a lovely, warm, hardworking and humble man. It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance and always a honor to see you at the historic Davenport Hotel. Mr. Reid passed quietly in his sleep last night at 88 years young 💛
The following is a post I made last thanksgiving as Mr Reed and my father hit it off like school boys. 
“Introducing two men who refuse to retire; longtime Davenport Hotel door man John Reed and my father, Dr. William D Ross. 
Reed has been at the Davenport Hotel for over 75 years, Though he took time off for college, Reed was hired at the tender age of 13 for 13 cents an hour as a busboy by Louis Davenport on June 1, 1942. Reed is the hotel’s longest serving employee by a landslide. In his honor, the hotel recently renamed its board room after him and gave him a new refrigerator stocked with all the fixins for gin and tonics, one of Reed’s favorite drinks. He works four days a week, showing no signs of cutting back hours. 
My accomplished father will be 89 next month and still owns/runs an international business, is a consistently published scientific author, guest lecturer and writes something meaningful every day. He’s a former university professor, who put himself through school and has been on the Olympic Congress amongst other notable international organizations. As a scientific leader in sport, human growth and development, he has been an innovator and unapologetically bold about calling out fraud in his field of expertise. 
My Dad has fond memories of visiting the “fancy” hotel as a youngster on family trips from Trail, BC. 
It’s an understatement to say these guys hit it off. Dad said he was sorry to miss John’s 75th party but will be sure to attend his 100th. The fast friends chuckled as they happily posed for a photo”
