Stepping Down




Steps leading down to the beach on the south shore of Molokai-sure beats having to negotiate the embankment! The water is shallow for quite a ways out before encountering the fringe reef. Molokai's reef is unique among the other islands because it has a 30 mile "fringing reef." This means that the reef crest is a half mile to a mile offshore and the unspoiled reef is just beyond that point. Just some trivial information for your memory banks to store!

Bonsai!





A bonsai plant I potted in preparation for the Molokai Arts Center Plant and Pot Sale on Dec. 9th. Members are asked to take home empty pottery pots made specifically for this fundraiser and plant something in it to be sold at the sale. It just so happened that I had a 'volunteer' bonsai tree (yes, it really was a volunteer and I've no idea how old it is). I saw this little 2" pot and thought it would be perfect for this miniature tree. It's an Octopus tree and I know-you're wondering why it's called that when it only has 5 leaves! Well, the flowers are long stems that resemble octopus tentacles. Hence, the name.

A Pistil Shadow





The 'anatomy' of a hibiscus flower brings back a childhood memory. These flowers are, of course, everywhere here in Hawaii and certainly in our yard. The memory is one of my older brother, Robert telling me what all the parts of the hibiscus flower were. He had pulled a flower off of a plant and took it apart to tell me what each part was. He still does things like this today, but now they are of more complex subjects and I just have to look at him and laugh and remind him that I will not, on any certain terms, remember any of what he is trying to teach me!


The pistils of the flowers always make for nice shadows, don't you think?

Afternoon DeLight





What is it about the late afternoon light in the fall? It seems to be even better than any other time of year. Quite magical, glowing, soft, warm, sensual-all rolled up in one! Well, it does captivate me each afternoon during that fleeting magical moment before the sun starts to dip down over the horizon-letting you know that you better look quickly before it's gone and dark settles in.

Coming in for a landing




Living on an island means that you find yourself flying a lot more to get from point 'A' to point 'B'. I went to Maui last weekend to visit my son. Took this shot as we were touching down at the Molokai airport. We've had lots of rain recently, so everything is super green-making for a nice contrast to the plane's shadow.
