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!!

Tunnel Vision....


He was sitting in front of my stuff when i came back from down the beach.....I did not realize right off what a beautiful spot he had picked to lay in the sun ... Mother Nature does this, she can cure us  of  our Tunnel vision....

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.....

A Rock and A Rainbow....

See the rock on the right of the picture? As a child , during the winter I got stuck behind it..... The Big Winter waves of Waimea Bay Oahu, pushed me on a collision course with that little rock, my life flashed before my eyes.... I was pulled to safety by one of my friends....

That rainbow lives out there.... I've taken many pictures of her....and each and every time I take this particular shot, I remember that day . Its GOOD to be alive..... I love that I can CHOOSE how I wish to live, that I can live a good life between A Rock And a Rainbow!!



p.s. yes thats two birds flying UNDER the rainbow..... it just magnificent out there!!


I am a grateful Island gal.........

Rainbow Connection.....

 Ive come to understand that many many things  within Mother Nature  can help us in daily living....yesterday August 25th, 2014 I found my self swimming in a downpour.... It was really raining.... For me personally, I swim rain or shine... I love the sound of the rain on the ocean... its blissful....
  But when the rain passed and the sun came out.... yup, a Rainbow!!!!.... As the rain moved further away going west, the newly risen sun of the east just lit up the sky with a magnificent rainbow....
No song or saying or prayer or sigh or yelp of joy could ever do justice to the rainbow I stood in front of....
I smiled and thought... "Such is Life, we ALL must go thru the rain.... but as the rain begins to move off into your  past remember .......LOOK  for  that  Rainbow Connection!!

Summer Stunners....

 The sun rolls towards the horizon in the islands, she is sizzling hot,
 she  isgetting ready to leave for the day. Stunning hot sunsets are the norm  in Hawaii during the summers....
 The occasional summer  rain is greeted by the sizzling sun , breaking into a song called a rainbow....
 and then if that weren't enough above the Ocean... the waters of summer here on Oahu turn into cathedrals of light!! clear, crystal, beautiful COOL water!!! Thank Goodness for the Ocean!! Its cooling powers epic to the Island people!!
Put them all together and you have The Hawaiian Islands and her stunning Summers......

Happy, Happy Hawaiian....

The water warms, the sun starts to sizzle..... Summer as arrived on Oahu..... 
 The water clears,
                                                                                                              The  fragrance of blooming flowers abound all over the island
 the turtles move back onto the shoreline
The Ocean turns 50 shades of blue....








Summer on Oahu..... I am a  Happy Happy, Hawaiian Island gal............
