Hong Kong/Guam/Hawaii

My life is so rich right now I can’t get more than a hint of it here. Left HKG Monday night 11 PM, after harried stopover in Guam, arrived Honolulu 5 PM Monday night; go figure. Got rental car, headed for North Shore, where I’m going to stay with friends for a few days. I remembered Haleiwa as being a soulful little town, and sure enough: Breakers restaurant: local beer on tap, pulled pork sandwich w/good fries, loud, raucous good surfer vibes, bunch of healthy people, reggae (what else?), these are my people! Made me think of how I essentially left the beach life in 1957, that is, I got into other things, and for some reason at this time in my life, I’m coming home to the beach. Cowabunga!

   There were a bunch of women having a very happy birthday party, thrown by Keri (at right with her daughter) it was Anna’s 55th, they were calling it the “speed limit” birthday. Keri’s a dynamo, a force of joy and good vibes. Blurry photo, but you get the idea.

Been giving people here the mini book, they love it…they get it.

   In all the various communication stuff I do, I love it when people get it.

  Heading out to see what I can find to do in this land of friendly people and warm water.

One of my favorite Bob Marley songs. I like it-a-like this…Don't Rock My Boat by Bob Marley & The Wailers on Grooveshark
