November 2016: Island Life


Some words to explain eight days on the island of Hawai'i:

Dried sharp black lava everywhere
Low to mid 80s, slight breeze, warm rain
Two lane highways, roundabouts, tight parking lots, few bikes or buses
Colorful birds, hanging hibiscus, green jungle plants, no snakes
Invasive species like mongoose, wild pigs, coqui frogs, albizia trees
Fun fruits, fresh fish, over-priced organics
 Black & brown sand beaches, some nudists, sea turtles
Active volcanos, 13K ft. mountains, big waves
 Many Asian cultures, haole (white people), locals

And some sights:

October 2016: Junk Us


I love fall.  To me, it is a time for shedding.

June 2016: Pride & Joy


Joy number one was finding a great parking spot.  Then we walked a few blocks to Broadway & met Yaya, the Neapolitan Mastiff who managed to lift his head.  We found a wide corner to stand on & watched the bright colors go by.  It was sunny; people were nice, happy.  The parade delivered dancing, music, flags, drums, batons, balloons, queens, a little leather, floats & fun bikes.  Big smiles, waves, applause, hoots, high-fives, handshakes & hugs.  Skittles & snacks, buttons, t-shirts, stickers.  Acceptance, celebration, remembrance, laughter, assurance, connection, positivity & pride.
