My return

Who’s that girl?? A Waimanalo beach girl.

How are you all, WP friends? It has been a VERY long time… Those who were familiar with my blog know that i have had a lot  going on… Life happens.

To put it in another way, “shit happens”… We all know that one.

I have been intensely involved in many things that don’t even vaguely come under the category of travel and photography.

I re-entered the work force in in 2013. I also had to face issues in my marital relationship. Finally, this year, my Mother’s health got worse. I lost my dear Mom  on May 30, 2015. I  flew over to Hawaii (48 hours after my Mom’s passing).

While I spun, thought,reacted and moved my life,my Nikon often sat in a corner at home. I lost a lot of my creative juices. I did pick up a “good deed” job. Since this year, I am a curator at my favorite photo website.  I am like the welcome wagon…I welcome newbies, look at their photos and give awards. Cool! I make smiles and I smile in return doing it !!

I almost did not take the Nikon to Hawaii in June ( that’s a first for me). But, my husband is a kind person and said ” what are you going to do over in Hawaii to keep busy? Take it!( i.e, the camera)”. That statement was something almost “prophetic’… I had a 17 day wait until I could even bury my Mom. (she was buried in a Veteran”s cemetery; the.burial date had to be scheduled by Veteran’s administration)

Nikon was there on the island with me. I thank my husband for that good piece of advice.

I have been on an inner spiritual and psychological path since at least the past five years. But circumstances, age and timing made me now go more deeply  I know that I have the rest of my life will be to evolve higher and live happier. It starts each day.

By the grace of the God/Universe, close friends, my cousins and yes, myself, I am getting on my better path.

I have had days when I logged into WP. You did not know and I didn’t know how to break the ice  to any of you. I just stared at the white page and the cursor…

I am going to leave you with a few photos. I like to photograph the sea when I go back to HI. I am hoping to be back in the WP flow as I get on with my healing. Same goes for Photography

I am saying Hi to old friends and I welcome to new friends. Hoping to  fly your friendly skies with  you in the near future.

Go ahead… put your footy prints on the beach, too!

Write comments, please, and have a special day ( because each day is really a special day).

    1. Hi Peter,
      Thank you for stopping by. Thank you also very much for your expression of sympathy. Yes, blogging has helped me sit down and reflect. Well, I am usually reflecting a lot but this time I share some with friends and the Universe.
      Cheers to you, my friend!!
