Day 59 – Super Moon

Dear Super Moon, You looked splendid tonight. Your rouge-like aura when you first emerged above the horizon made me wonder if you were a bit angry. Did Mars tell you something that pissed you off? Did he tell you that you are not made of rock, but of cheese? My sweet, you do look beautiful... Continue Reading →

Day 46 – Love with Abandon

Love with abandon. You have heard this adage before. You have wished for it.  You may have decided you will never know what this means. But you are experiencing it right now, every day, every hour, every minute. You are loving Earth with abandon. You think she will support you. You think she will always... Continue Reading →

Day 38 – Picture Story

DelMar and I went on an adventure Sunday morning. First we road to the trailhead for Kaiwa Ridge aka Pillbox. This hike goes straight up for about a quarter mile. It was a moderately hard trail but the views were worth it. After the hike, we road to the beach for a swim before heading... Continue Reading →

Day 16 – Beach Access

I had a fantastic experience - I picked it back up like my last dive was a week ago. Perhaps diving is like riding a bicycle? The most amazing thing... Continue Reading →

Day 15 – Roadtrip

He'eia state park, where the views of sand bar, Kaneohe bay and the Ko'olau mountains were spectacular. ... Continue Reading →

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 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 →
