Gnome Wanderer












Nope.That is NOT the Travelocity Gnome! I think this one is much better looking, IMHO.

This one resides at the Mahana Gardens Nursery on Molokai, HI. I don't know whose idea it was to put him just where he is and paint the tree trunk behind him just the way it is, but it is nothing but brilliant and wonderful! Whimsy abounds at this plant nursery-that should be something we all could expect from a garden nursery, right?

Geometric Shapes










I suppose nothing could be more mundane than a hand rail to a pathway. And yet, at the right time of day with the right kind of light, it makes for interesting shapes. I hope more and more of you are taking more time to observe that which is right under your nose! And, I can only hope that in doing so, you find your visual world to be a little more exciting than before.

Cool, Clear, Water







The heat of summer is upon us and nothing, I think quenches better than a cold glass of water.

The Kalaupapa Trail






Pala'au Park near the Kalaupapa trailhead



The trailhead for the Kalaupapa trail is about a mile and a half from my door. Now that I live here, my goal is to walk a small portion of the top of the trail regularly (the definition of 'regular' is a fluid one in this case!). I did do that this morning-such a great way to start the day!

We all know that early morning and late day also makes for dramatic shadows!

Am I Really Here?






Sometimes I still feel like I'm in a dream that I am truly back here at home where I was born here on Molokai. Just as much as I miss New Mexico, I am embracing being here. In the past 10 days, I've been to the beach more times than I have in 3 years! 

This kind of a move is grueling and spans over months and even beyond a year or two. The work seems endless and the stress is intense. We got our container yesterday. It was supposed to be here earlier, but you are at the mercy of the shipping company, the trucking company, Homeland security, and so much more. Although there is still much to do by way of cleaning, painting, unpacking, etc., we try to find time to celebrate being here. And, we are returned with unexpected gifts. 

Tonight was no exception as we pulled into the driveway and got out of the car, Jessica gasped at the sky of a star-encrusted sky. We have no light pollution here, so on a clear night, you can see why it's called the, "Milky Way". My older brother, Robert is self taught on many subjects and star constellations is one. On a clear summer's night, we'd lay on the lawn in the back yard and he'd point out a whole slew of constellations. Of course, I barely remember any of them, save for the big Dipper!

The other treat we had was the heady perfume of the night blooming Jasmine. We'll get to enjoy that fragrance for the next month or so in the evenings. It's next to our front porch-I have the doors open and the fragrance is wafting throughout the house. So heavenly!
