Day 13 -Relief

The weather in Hawaii is beautiful. Eighty degrees, trade winds are blowing a gentle breeze and making the humidity seem less. I drive to work with my windows all the way down. Then there is the temperature in my studio. Hot, humid, and stuffy. No breeze can find its way into my abode because of... Continue Reading →

Day 12 – Plumeria

My first trip to the Islands was back in 1992. It was to the Big Island. One of my most vivid memories of that trip was the perfumed air. It wasn't the smell of that so-called "fresh scent" that humans have tried to make out of synthetic or petroleum based products that cling to your... Continue Reading →

Day 11 – Traffic

Traffic. It is the plague of the modern world. It even exists on this small dot in the middle of the grand Pacific Ocean.  Thanks to a little research and asking friends who live in Oahu, I learned how to avoid standstill traffic. It takes me 32 minutes to drive the 14 miles to work.... Continue Reading →

Day 10 – Monday

This is how I feel tonight... Spent and in need of sleep... Why am I spent?

Day 9 – Beach Time

Stayed in town today. DelMar and I went to the farmers market, the post office, and the hardware store.  To make DelMar more practical I thought about buying her a basket but it cost more than she did.  Luckily, DelMar has a nice rack over her back wheel and with a couple of bungee cords...

Day 8 – It’s a parade!

Aloha Festival's 70th annual floral parade was today. I took the bus from Kailua all the way to Honolulu (a little over an hour, but air conditioned!).                 There were marching bands, people in cars driving by and waving or shaka-ing. But my favorite were the Pa'u riders.... Continue Reading →

Day 7 – Glad that’s over

Time to celebrate the passing of week one. I moved to a new place, made it my own, and started my temporary assignment for work. I have met beautiful people and have the most beautiful commute to work - 20ish minutes up then down the H-3 through Jurrasic park looking mountains (because it was filmed... Continue Reading →

Day 5 – Between Two Worlds

On my beach walk this morning I realized I was walking between two worlds. Where the ocean and land meet. Then I thought about how perhaps we all are walking between two worlds. Or many worlds. And perhaps those worlds are only different perspectives of the same world. The ocean and land are part of... Continue Reading →
