Light Bearer Sunday

A  L  O  H  A !
Me And You And A Dog Named Boo by Lobo on Grooveshark

" The hero. . . 

kindles a great light in the world. . . 

sets up blazing torches

in the dark streets of life. .  . 

walks through the dark paths

of the world

 (being) a light. "

Felix Adler

The People of Hawaii 

have fought to preserve

 the Ka Iwi Coastline

of East Oahu.

Feels like driving
the edge of eternity.

Magnificent churning waters, foaming, leaping!
Coves, crevices, a fountaining Blow Hole.
President Obama came here as a boy.
Kamehameha the Great
landed his war canoes here
on his conquest of Oahu.

Ka Iwi means: "The Bones"
You can commune with the bones
of the island itself,
and perhaps discover
your own spine,
or even if you
possess one.

It is a vast space
that also feels intimate
and eternal
while very much
in the moment.

 from all over the world 
stop to admire
 Ka Iwi

On a clear day, 
you can see the isle of Moloka`i,
and sometimes even Lanai
as above.
Voyagers in sailing canoes
inhabited these islands.

It is a place
 for solitude,
for friends.
Humans are dwarfed,
as in Asian art.

" Here shall be

 eternal summer

 in the grateful heart. "
