Hawaii Inspirations ~ 2016

Hawaiian time allows one to slow down, connect, and be inspired by all that surrounds you.  The land, the people, and the culture are reflected in the art created on the island.  My time on the island was spent reconnecting with a good friend and rediscovering my connection to nature.

After watching a fresh lei making demonstration by Kuana Torres Kahele, I will never look at flora and fauna in the same way again.  We attended a monthly "Full Moon, Talk Story" event where community leaders and performers share their special gifts in the true spirit of Aloha.  The evening of Hawaiian storytelling and entertainment is hosted by the Mauna Lani Resort at the Eva Parker Woods Cottage’s oceanfront lawn on the big island.
