Oh warm my soul at Ahalanui and refresh my body... your healing warm waters heal my spirit and the aches in my body.
Meanwhile, the air circulating through the coconut trees surrounds the pond, blowing soft and cool winds to my face, a perfect complement to the warm pool.
The wild and thrashing ocean waves crashing outside the barriers into the pool adds to the experience while all inside in this inner sanctuary easily relax, play and float in contemplation.
I love laying on my back and looking up at all the swaying coconut trees singing to me always, with some mornings grey haired tutus (grandmothers) gather together, holding hands and singing to themselves in joy.
I feel like I have discovered a secret, of old Hawaii and of a time and place that still exists.
Sari-Sari means a mix-mix life in Filipino and thats exactly how living is here in East Hawaii. Life is good on the Big Island and I'm exploring all my interests in the arts, photography and writing, food and cooking, gardening and sustainability, outdoor living and lifestyle, enjoying friendships and living the aloha life...come and share my adventure.
Writer, photographer, artist, food fanatic and wanderer,I love to visit and discover new places, exotic food and interesting people along my travels. I love to travel abroad and share new stories and images of my visits, food discoveries, culture/historic tours and trying something new and worth sharing. My photography and writing is a big part of the joy and creative process.
