What a Wonderful Parade.


To say that this is a totally zany parade is an understatement. Welcome to the Pahoa Christmas parade in East Hawaii, where you wont find the typical types of floats, people and Christmas cheer everywhere else.



Here, we celebrate the unique, crazy and fun that happens to everyone in this neck of the woods and the parade, really manifests the entire spirit of this community.


Don’t you think this is different?


I always love antique cars, especially when they are dressed in beautiful






Look even Aunty Claus’ sister made a guest appearance today!




I think this little tot, was going for the best float award in the parade, what a cutie!




Plenty of free hugs to go around today from the teletubbies.





Whats a parade without our local ukelele marching players?




one of my favorite troups, Da Puna Wieners all dressed up…


I’m dressed up and still looking for my treat, have you seen it?




Roller derby is hot in East Hawaii, these are the champion Hilo derby girls.




Past USO performer and still going strong, doing it for the Toys for tots drive, way to







Horses and tinsel, whats not to like?





Chicken man is a well known attraction here in Pahoa town…want to buy a souvenir



Our local circus group, does a very colorful show with unicycles, twirlers and sweet kids.



Our local version of santa on a sleigh, here he comes in a Big Yellow truck, courtesy of our

local fire department.




That’s the Parade at Pahoa, hope you enjoyed the whole show, it was another

special parade for participants and marchers alike.

Peace at a Zen Garden






Oh how I would love to come here often and just have some time to be


                         quiet, breath


                                    and  relax



maybe just take a moment to contemplate about my life





                     and where I’m going


                                      but its too easy to get


               distracted in this space…







- its just too beautiful here …





          I love this tactile environment - I want to run my hands all through this beautiful


                       moss, then look at all the details

                                                                    up close










                                     little micro-organism.





                     Its very green and lush here, a perfect environment for this moss to grow


along with these ohia trees with their peeling bark and crevices filled with


green fungus




                  and bumpy looking bacteria





                                        on their stong limbs and stems.





                  I look up and see the focal point atop a small mound of lava rocks and moss


lies a beautiful and simple buddah head


                                               – its sits there so peacefully and




invites you in to come in and enjoy this welcoming environment.


                                  Aaaaaaaah – yes breath in this forest


                                              and enjoy the moss!


I wish that I could visit here more often…..
