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. (Morgan Williams is modeling her purchase)

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 bec…

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 fathe…

Dancing with Daffodils

Cheap thrills....Happy 🌼 daffodils are just $1.49 a bunch at Trader Joe's-Spokane,WA. It’s true, you can’t buy happiness but you can buy daffodils and that’s kind of the same thing. 💛#flowerpower Daffodils always remind me of the Walt Whitman poem, I wandered lonely as a cloud.  I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.  Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.  The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:  For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
W…
