  • Seeing A Forest of Trees on Waihou Spring Trail

    Destination: Maui

    tree on waihou spring trailLast week, I was on Maui, expecting to drive up, up, up the windy, twisty road that leads to the summit of Haleakala.

  • A Story of Hula

    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    story of hula video title screenSince moving to Hawaii nearly 14 years ago and getting to know hula a little more as each month tears off the calendar, I am starting to entertain the idea of joining a halau (troupe). I think what gets me is the sacredness that hula practitioners exhibit in their skill. As they extend their arms and reach their hands my way, I feel inexplicably drawn to their story.
