Aloha! I am an indigenous Hawaiian, native to the island of Hawaii, also known as, Big Island, or Volcano Island, or Orchid Island, and a few other lessor known names. I grew up in a rural life without electricity, with an out house, a rain-filled water tank, natural spring wells used for drinking and or like a refrigerator, outdoor rain-filled metal drums with a small long handled pot used for bathing, kerosene stove and lamps, a charcoaled iron being careful with the Sunday whites, and having our own KFC scamper about in our yard. I held a keen interest in poetry since my freshman year in high school. 'The Collection Plate', was my first published work in 1977 by a major national magazine. That opened the door for others to appear in several published anthologies throughout my career. Retired after 48 years, and nowadays, besides writing, with the help of my tech-savvy family, I have produced several videos for my two YouTube channels to occupy my time. *Image is of Mauna Kea (White Mountain) 13,760 ft, in the foreground, on the windward side, is the county seat of Hawaii and our island's largest town of Hilo (to bond), with 48,000 residents, whereto, I call home.
