Ancient Hawaii

Image
The Volcanic haze {Vog}  from the active volcano on the island Hawaii, another island, in the archipelago that i call home, rolls onto Oahu as the winds change. The ocean is still in winter on Oahu's North Shore, the surf pounding, releasing a sea spray full of salt  into the air... the Vog and the sea spray on the North Shore Oahu, embraced the sun, filtering out his heated glare .. I stand with my camera in hand,the sun about to set, a smile on my face.... just for a moment, i zoom back in time... this scene ....is.... Ancient Hawaii...

I'm not rich in money  so when i gave her all the money i had , it was only two dollars and some change.  She hadn't asked for it, i felt the need to give it to her.
She was soooo sooo grateful it brought tears to my eyes... She could buy cat food she said..   I talked to her a bit more and then left....

I went on about my way in the next little town, when my phone rang.....
   "Hello?"
"HI LEILANI, ITS JACKIE,  I BOUGHT YOU A NIKON!!"......
