Happy ‘Aloha Friday’ to you!
We all have places & peoples who have impacted and changed us for better.
For me, the Aina, the land of Hawaii immediately connected with me, body and soul. Yes it was through the sweetness of the air & fragrance on the wind, the waters that soothe and wash away time and residue, the people who carry their lineage forward in dance and music and art. But it was also about Pele whos rumbling presence is felt in the challenges, the fierce pride, the death & rebirth of who we thought we were and who we truly are ....
The essence is so deep underneath all the sweetness and it is more than beautiful.
Listen here to 'Island Style' for a little taste .....
