Ironwood Trees





So much of what grows here in Hawaii are non-native plants-in other words, not indigenous. It's a double-edged sword. The plus side is that anything and everything grows here. The downside is that anything and everything grows here. One of the non-native trees are the ironwood tree. It grows very well here and the wood is very hard-I think so hard that you don't see woodworkers making things from it.

I mention this tree since the shadow that you are looking at is a branch of the ironwood tree. I will say that it did catch my eye on one of my morning walks. It was as though the tree used the rock as a substrate on which to cast its lacy shadow. Rock art? LOL.

Aloha Week Festival 2017











This week here in Hawaii, on each of the island's is a week long festival called Aloha Week. This evening was the community gathering and celebration of Aloha Week with food, music, hula dancing with a royal court presiding over it all. Very much so a rich cultural celebration-while preserving some of the island's unique traditions.

The Sum of the Parts





I know I see things that others don't readily see. And I often capture what I see without giving context as to what the whole actually is. In this case, I remembered to. Shadows cast from my water bottle placed on my notebook that was covered by a 'book cover' that I had made.




So, in this instance, I actually provided you with the whole that goes with the parts. I hope that it gives you a glimpse of how easily it is to see abstractions in ordinary things. A shift in perspective, if you may.

OMG-where did September go to? Happy fall everyone! My favorite time of the year.

Dragon on a Tree Limb







You see it, don't you? A dragon perched on a tree limb? Well, that's what I see! I don't know if that is what the design is really intended to be of. All I know is, that it is lovely!

I also see a kind of octopus thing but he doesn't have all of his eight limbs. Oh, then there's the barking dog...

Let your imagination run free!

Seaside Sunset Dinners Molokai Style















One of the things that my husband and I promised each that we would do when we moved here to Molokai was to make sure we made it down to the beach often enough to enjoy the sunset. And, that's just what we did yesterday. We (OK, I) packed up a light picnic dinner and some drinks and drove over to the west end of the island (which is about 17 miles from our door) and there we are-at a beautiful beach. We were almost the only ones there. A few others were there, but very much so on the other side of the beach which was about 1/4 mile away. The sunsets this week have been intense with deep colors-most likely from the vog that we've had this week. You can learn more about vog here. I've posted a lot of these sunset images on my Facebook page, so if you're a Face-booker, drop by to see the spectacular colors.
