It’s a rainy morning in Upcountry Maui. Sitting on our hand-me-down rattan couch, with the sheet I use to cover the ugly 90s floral print coming up, (because once again, the sheet doesn’t understand it’s supposed to cover the couch, not hang loose) I prop my legs up on the coffee table and stare out the window watching the rain pour down and the wind blow all around. And I think.
You see, when it comes to my life in Maui, and thinking of all the things I can share with you, I become tongue-tied and my mind draws a blank. Honestly, moving here two years ago was the hugest step of faith our family had taken…and living here is something so close to my heart…the dream and adventure of it all working itself out…it’s a very personal journey.
So, sure, it’s easy for me to write about the Farmer’s Markets and goings-on over on A Maui Blog, or to write about the Haiku Ho’olaule’a & Flower Festival coming up to support our kids’ school, or even now as a contributing writer for Maui Family Magazine (my first issue to be published in will come out in May 2014). But when it comes to my blog on Island Gypsy Hawaii, I lose my words…but they are there…stirring in my heart, welling up in my soul and on the tip of my fingers.
Perhaps they will pour out like these island rains one day soon. Until then…I leave you with one of my photos, where my perspective is captured through my eyes, instead.
With mucho aloha,
