I was born in San Diego and, at 17, reborn again in Hawai’i where I have now lived for almost 60 years. Even after this long I still get a flutter in my heart when I think of how blessed I am to have had my life changed so drastically and in so many wondrous ways. When I awaken and look out my window I see the myriad of flowers blooming on the trees; the red blossoms of lehua ‘ohi’a, the white hibiscus, the pink and yellow plumeria. The chirping of coqui frogs serenade me and the sound of the ocean waves crashing against the cliffs at the foot of my street are music to lull me to sleep. My own little private forest surrounds my own little cottage where I can dance the hula ( which is a particular passion of mine), play my Hawaiian music, plunk on my ‘ukulele and no one finds me strange. I have retired after 24 years as a Chiropractic Asst. and now am fueling my passion for hula with an on-line Etsy shop specializing is hula attire. I work with beautiful, colorful Hawaiian print fabrics and get to have conversations with people who have the same passion as I. Blessed, indeed!
