Tahiti Tom


“Tipani flower skies blazing rapture of color laced tree crowns silhouettes along the ocean diamond necklaced beach…of my heart in fragrance of love spilled by caressing kisses of the sun opening the gates to dive deep through away to horizons with no return…”
― Oksana Rus

    • He’s someone who made the interesting journey from my brain to the paper…I know him now…a child of my paint brush and named Tom after my grandfather. 🙂 I’ve reread this quote several times…and have decided it’s best to read in bursts of 2 or 3 words. I put “Tahiti Quotes” in the search engine and this is what it pulled up for me…so I’m looking no “gift horse” in the mouth. 😀 😀 😀


  1. Imagine being the first Europeans to discover Tahiti, it must have looked like the perfect paradise, I would love to feel like I was a proper distance from home, although these days we would still be connected with the world.

    • To bad the first Europeans didn’t just sail on by and leave Tahiti as the paradise it was. But human beings are just so curious and they probably needed food and water and a break from the sea so…..!

      If I delve way back in my mind I’m able to somewhat vaguely remember the time when my family had no phone (of any kind) and no television (or computer or Kindle, etc.) We did have a radio and neighbors (across the dirt road) and newspapers and actual letters in the mail so weren’t entirely disconnected from the world. I believe I would be able to survive in a post-apocalyptic world but would sorely miss being connected all over the world via the computer.

      • The post-apocalyptic world would be easy provided that I was surrounded by loads of books. Too much information seems detrimental these days but it’s better to know than not. It’s amazing how quick the world has advanced and difficult it would be to go back.

        We have to go everywhere and ruin things, it’s nice to dream of these unspoilt places though, make for a good story or piece of art.


  2. Yes books would no doubt become as precious as they used to be ages ago. The sad thing is we can never truly know what these remote paradises were like before the outside world arrived, because what we know is because the outside world arrived. I like dreaming about them too…they have made for excellent stories and art.
