Patterns



I don't know about you, but I found these patterns and shadows to be quite hypnotic!

Finding Aloha





Wow-is it just me or is the time really whizzing by faster than you can keep up with? When you think about it, September is more than halfway over which means October looms then November and December and then there goes the year. How is this possible?

The image pictured here is the road that cuts through the park near my home that I go for walks in about 2-3 times a week. This week, someone did some 'graffiti' on the road with this 'Aloha'  sign. I'm sure the state park workers will be obligated to remove it, but I'll bet anything they'll be reluctant to do so. But, it's nice to find 'Aloha' in unexpected places!

Kitchen Angel




Doesn't matter to me if you believe in angels or not-I certainly do! We are lucky to have hurricane Lester stay to the north of us last weekend. Too close for comfort! I'd like to think that the angels heard our prayers and answered them.

I like to collect what I would call 'funky' angels-particularly if they are made from bits and pieces of recycled stuff. I like to keep them in my kitchen and this is one of them. I love how someone else can see the possibility with with a few pieces of things. I don't particularly care for angels made from sea shells though. Don't know why. I guess I have my particulars in regards to this.

Shower Tree Shadows





Trees make for great shadows-often reminding me of something. This one looks like they are waving as the parade goes by.

It's been hurricane season here in Hawaii and we've got them for sure, as we are witnessing two back to back hurricanes this week. Hurricane Madeline veered off to the south-storm surges from the waves caused enough damage on the Big Island, but still, was too close for comfort. Lester, which was right behind Madeline, seemed even more formidable as it has the potential to cause lots of damage to most of the islands. As I write this, it has weakened and seems to be taking a more northerly path. I'm hoping that by this time tomorrow, we will really be heaving a big sigh of relief.

Here on Molokai, we depend on the barge to come in twice a week to deliver our goods-everything, really. While shopping on Tuesday, I learned that there will be no barge until Thursday of next week (barge comes in on Mondays and Thursdays) due to the storms. That meant stocking up on what you normally go to the store for twice a week. We also have to make sure our vehicles have full tanks of gas since fuel comes in once a month by barge (and I've yet to learn what that schedule is). Someone once told me that life here on Molokai is simpler but harder. The dependency on the barge delivering goods can make it harder. When the store runs out, they are out until the barge comes in. Having said this, I hope this shifts your perspective when you are out grocery shopping-we always have much to be thankful for, right?

If These Rocks Could Talk






Living back home on Molokai now, I get to go for walks in this really magical forest that is part of a state park only 2 miles from my door. I usually go alone but I am never alone when on these walks. This forest talks a lot. The wind going through the trees-almost always a constant. The birds warbling throughout the day, a branch falling in the distance. 

And the light. Oh, the light! I never get tired of seeing how the light changes each time I am there. It is a very meditative place to be, this forest.

And then, there are the rocks. Or, boulders, I might say. They are full of stories from the past. Stories I will never know, but things they have been there for. I keep asking them to reveal these stories, but they remain silent-waiting for that moment that is right.
