Hawaiian Skies

A  L  O  H  A !

“Hawai'i is not truly the idyllic paradise of popular songs--islands of love and tranquility, where nothing bad ever happens. It was and is a place where people work and struggle, live and die, as they do the world over.” 
                  Alan Brennert, Honolulu

 “Summer in Honolulu brings the sweet smell of mangoes, guava, and passionfruit, ripe for picking; it arbors the streets with the fiery red umbrellas of poinciana trees and decorates the sidewalks with the pink and white puffs of blossoming monkeypods. Cooling trade winds prevail all summer, bringing what the old Hawaiians called makani 'olu' 'olu--- "fair wind".” 
  Alan Brennert, Honolulu

“A road need not be paved in gold
 to find treasures at its end.” 
          Alan Brennert, Honolulu
