  • Wicked Brings Broadway to Honolulu

    Destination: Oahu

    wicked playbillI must be the only woman in America who has yet to see Wicked. That was my conclusion after asking about a dozen girlfriends if they wanted to go see the play running in Honolulu through January 12, 2013, and they all said something on the order of, “I’ve already seen it in New York, London, Chicago, Los Angeles, _________.” To be fair, Hawaii is a bit of a distance from the epicenter of theater in the United States, and I hadn’t ventured to Broadway since moving to Hawaii right before that other end-of-the-world scare—Y2K.

And I do mean rolling. A phalanx of bicyclists escorted the wheelchair racers through the 26.2-mile course. The crowd responded with cheers, a kind of verbal fist bump, and I teared up as a blur of wheels whizzed past me.

  • November in Photos

    sunset over molokai oceanI’ve had some juicy assignments this year. I’m the first to admit it. In a couple weeks, when I recap the year, one of the highlights will surely be the time I spent participating on Molokai at the Creative Photography for the Soul workshop. Like experiences that stick, this one came at a good time--at exactly the right time when my soul needed some creative inspiration. And believe me, I got it, as I hope these photographs convey.
