Over The Rainbow in Waikiki

A  L  O  H  A !
"Don't leave Hawaii.
You can never come back."
That's what the 
local people say.

The lure of owning a home, 
of better wages, the heat. . . . 
It all tempts Hawaii residents
to go California, or 
Vegas, or Seattle.

But once you are there ,
Hawaii calls 
in a million and one ways. 
The warmth of her people, 
the technicolor skies and 
mountains,not to mention 
Hawaii's food and music!

All have a way of calling 
in your dreams
like a siren song.

I heard that song for almost 
four years in California.
And coming back ISN'T easy!

But today I write to you 
from my Waikiki
of almost 30 years. 

Home Again.

Brother IZ Surfboard

I will never leave my friends, 
family and islands again.
Welcome back!
We are in Waikiki together once again.
Truly. Somewhere over the rainbow.

Mahalo for your visit. 
You are MOST welcome here!

Thank YOU
