On a Personal Note.....

Can you believe some people actually Hate Hawaii?  Yes, those of us who live here in the islands see and hear it ALL the time....
 The pictures in todays entry I've taken in the last 2 weeks, February 2015 into March 2015...
 .. For awhile i figured well maybe it the terrible winters we have here... You know Big waves and all....
 ... or maybe its the rain of Spring.... that people hate.....
 and then i smile because it boils down to this... if you cant live here in Love and peace...
... on a personal note , just my opinion...you cant live Anywhere....

Sunrise and Madame Pele

There is an active Volcano on the Biggest island of the Hawaiian island Chain... when the winds shift.... the VOG (volcanic Haze) drifts over the island chain and onto the island i live on, Oahu....The ancient Hawaiians called the Volcano PELE...  PELE or Madame Pele as the locals call her, creates super sunrises, like this one this morning..... Its prehistoric....and very very beautiful...

Lucky One....

This place on the North Shore of Oahu is privy to the sunset only a few weeks out of the year. Knowing this I headed down to catch a sunset.... I never expected to see a turtle resting on the sand here , so much so, I almost walked into him. What a delight it was to see him!! For some reason its always been a challenge for me to get a sunset capture with a Turtle. I don't know if its the light , the sand, the turtle , the air that creates a less than perfect shot, but on this day, with this sunset.... I got lucky..... with this one....
I am a lucky Island gal......

Winter in the Islands in Blue and Green and White.

 Winter in the Islands is in full swing....
                                                                     the water way too rough for me to swim in.....


                                                                                            but the views from the  shoreline  are incredible.........
                                         .......in Blues and greens and whites..... the colors of winter in Hawaii Nei

True Value is priceless....

Winter arrives in the islands..... the water becomes rough, blown by wind and winter storms out in the open ocean.... for me the water in many places becomes too dangerous so i must sit and wait till spring before i reenter the water... the wait is always agonizing...

I took this pic two weeks ago after i returned from the East Coast of the United States... I longed to feel the sand of the Pacific Ocean beneath my feet.. in my hurry i left my purse on the back seat floor of my car.... When i returned to my car my window had been broken , my purse gone.... my brand new iphone a gift from my daughter and soninlaw, was gone... the wallet my mother bought me before she passed on... gone.... There are two things i know for sure....


 1. ALL material things can be replace... what we can buy is not irreplaceable....


 2. If u believe in the after life , you will understand my mother SAW who took that wallet... God help them they are gonna need it....


  I reflect on my perceived loss with a smile.... I learned much more with this loss than i actually lost!! For a time , a number of days i agonized... such a human trait!! How is it possible that I can be in agony when i live on a planet full of wonder!! It has crossed
my mind many times in the past  and more so in the past 2 week that this planet is irreplaceable.... May we all reconnect with what CANNOT be replaced. The presence of this planet , her gifts , her TRUE VALUE..... its priceless....

A Hawaiian in New England


My daughter lives in Boston Massachusetts.....
 I have been visiting her.....
What an amazing planet  we live on..... This Hawaiian LOVED Massachusetts,
, her changing leaves and her ocean, the incredible Atlantic.... very very different from the Pacific but just as impressive!!

Confession.....

 I must confess....
 those of us who live here in the islands....
we forget, take advantage of, ignore the beauty we live amidst.... Shame on us..... I must confess.....
