Aloha from Kihei

After 9 hours in an airplane, 6 of which were over the pacific ocean, I had never been so excited to see land. This is my first trip to anywhere remotely tropical and I’m beginning to think living on mainland all these years was a grave grave mistake. Not having been here for 24 hrs yet, all I can tell you is about the food: fresh papaya filled with passion fruit, fish tacos with cabbage, cilantro and pineapple salsa, then add a coca- cola. Crab cakes, sea bass with polenta and sweet Maui onions, creme brûlée, 2 glasses of wine and a red ale from the Kona Brewing company. I think I had 6 meals yesterday alone.
For my first sunset we drove to Lahaina and watched the sun yawn itself into the water from a restaurant porch. I can’t really believe I’m here; that a place like this even exists in the world.
This morning I watched the sun rise, got a cup of Kona coffee and a fresh giant sticky bun and watche the waves swing back and forth. I collected shells, waded into the lava rocks chasing crabs and when mother nature told me I was getting to close, I took my journey to the sand – sea water dripping from my shorts.

    We are from the sea and when we return to her shores, we know we are in our Mother’s presence. She feeds us from her breast, physically and spiritually.

      Ms. Moon I feel a fullness that’s been absent for a while. I believe. I’ve always felt I need to be close to the sea…and then I leave it and go inland. Hopefully someday I’ll remedy that. Xo
