I am wrapping up my photo tour of Oahu, Hawaii with the following quote:
“Make good the good in you…and you will slowly steal into the Hawaiian heart, which is all of softness, and gentleness, and sweetness”. ~ Jack London, My Hawaiian Aloha.
Beautiful flowers to share with my friends!
When you think about places, you can understand how powerful they can be.
They can attract or turn you off.
Hawaii was not my birthplace but I came here at a young age. A large part of who I am comes from these volcanic islands under the sun. And, to know me is to know how important Hawaii contributed in making the person I am.
My sense of values to people, differences, cultures and races is all from here.
This is where I lived tolerance.
I did not read about what tolerance was or hear how it should be.
No, I was too busy living my life among the rainbow of peoples and cultures that make up Hawaii.
All children should grow up here and learn what it is to be tolerant and open so they live this value actively in their lives.
That Hawaiian spirit touches everyone that I meet.
Hoping that you enjoyed seeing Hawaii… On to a new place in September, which will be our last overseas trip of 2012. I will be announcing that soon.
Aloha to all.
