I was blessed to have lived in the Hawaaian islands for 3 years.

like linen sheets upon a clothesline breathe air circulates through our home Pearl City Oahu ~ a small fenced in yard bumps the busy road where a papaya tree grows along with my children ~ a forty-five minute scenic drive from calm to North Shore steep waves a surfer’s paradise ~ my twenty something husband boogie boards waves throw his ride onto beach thrill seeker befriends life ~ toddler son embraces milder waters billowing seas at twilight high tide bids aloha ~ this haole misses most the awesome beach precious time of family the aloha spirit ~ 3/5/2018 Aloha - hello, goodbye, welcome haole - caucasian
