Howdy ho, folks!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted because Pete and I were cavorting around the big island of Hawaii. More on that in a moment.
My mind works in rather “unique” ways (notice the sudden topic change). I saw the ever popular bumper sticker today that said, “The best things in life aren’t things”. Welllll – what might those be? Relationships, laughter, joy, love, sunsets? Those are all nouns – which technically are – drum roll -things 🙂 Maybe the bumper sticker should say that the best things in life are adjectives! Or superlatives! Like totally!
Meanwhile, back to the cavorting. Any trip to Hawaii is awesome. We truly want to move there in the next few years. The highlight of this jaunt was to get as close as possible to the fuming volcano, Kilauea. Much of the immediate area around the caldera was closed due to those sulfur fumes. It was bittersweet to see the closed (for renovations) Volcano House hotel right on the rim because that is where we spent part of our honeymoon 26 years ago. It was also bittersweet to drive certain roads and to look way up to the Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa observatories because that is where Pete’s dad spent alot of time with his work for NASA.
Amongst the very best things in life, to me, are the Hawaiian islands and their culture and music. Part of me is always there.
