Hello! I think of you every day. I think of all that I love and I think of how serendipitously chaotic my life is, in the most fascinating and beautiful way, and I never fail to acknowledge how wonderfully I live. Even though there are times that my favorite things feel so out of reach, like my family, close friends, books, new poetry, motorcycle, and dancing like Jaws in the middle of a grimey dance floor, I pull out one of the times from my pocket and love on it from where I am. I am simultaneously growing to love this country across the world more day by day. I do not spend much time in my home since I live alone. When I am with people, I feel like I am growing into where I am. So, that’s what I continue to do. Image

Here’s what my days look like…

Please post by 8pm this evening. Link your blog with two others from the class that relate to your topic. Comment on two blogs, and share a website with another. 

Home on Maui

I have spent 9 weeks on Maui and in her beautiful waters this past year. It is safe to say that I am pretty spoiled, and that the beaches of the Atlantic coast don’t provide the same sense of awe they once would have. Due to a terribly unfortunate events the house that I was supposed to be working on while on Maui, wasn’t able to close until the last ten days on the Island. With all the free time I took up diving, and fell in love with a hobby that far to few get to enjoy. In PA, our waters are not ideal for SCUBA so I am constantly finding myself daydreaming of destinations across the world where the water is clear, and a wet suit isn’t necessary.

This trip was one of the best ways to spend a winter break between semesters. I learned more about my family living with my aunt, and uncle both from my fathers side. My uncle and I went to Dog and Duck pub in Kihei a couple times a week. During the days I would roam the island on a scooter that was way to small for someone my size, and in the evenings we would play board games with Rick and Allen who without question allowed us to stay in their home while we waited on the house closing. Uncle Joe and I shared a mattress that had been tossed quickly into a guest room that was also a storage room at the time while my aunt slept on the couch in the living room.

I will make it back to Maui again some day and explore the other islands but until then I have my pictures, memories, and the internet to keep me in the Hawaiian spirit while I am away from a place that I will always consider a home.

Was able to spend the evening with a friend mother who recently passed away. She lived the Hawaiian spirit. Aloha Mrs. Palo

The patterns on each turtle's head differs from one another. No two are the same. Much like a human finger print

It was such a great experience to get Dylan Page to join our crew for a day of shooting. As one of the resident photographers at Chatter he really knows the lens and kills the pow big time.

Kyle snapped a few pics of Dylan charging inbetween him setting up for his next photos…

We will post some amazing photos from him and Kyle on a Chatter Trip Gallery here..

Stay tuned.
