I just got back from an incredible journey to paradise. Hawai'i really is amazing state of the union with so many gifts. Adventures included: a stay with a dear friend on Maui with side trips to snorkeling with whales, climbing to the sky, seeing way big waves, bonding with my sister Ellie in yet a new way, going to Oahu and coming out as an "ecomusicologist" at an international conference talking about the amazing Louise Talma, enjoying that heart-opening conference, sailing at sunset with whales and flying for a whole day almost. Phew. And today I get to celebrate my birthday (same day as MLK!) by posting some of the hundreds of photos! Lucky me! Recuperation with preparation for work, photos, exercise, music and a very cute kitty. Life is good, thank you all!
