I have been in Maui for nine days. This trip was exhilerating, grounding, exciting and interesting. I learned a lot about myself. I remembered things that were important to me. Like swimming in warm water.

Ulua beach, on the South side of Maui, is a gentle curve with velvety soft sand and lilting surf. I sun toasted myself while immersed in Amy Tan, then bailed into the perfect water to cool off. Float, emerge, repeat.

On our last day, we snorkeled along the reef, seeing the most amazing fish and coral, anemones (my favorite word) and urchins. I only felt scared if I imagined a shark emerging from the murky depths.

I was lazy, sensual, thoughtful, quiet, and serene, like a good lioness. Now re-entry has begun, so bear with me as I slowly unfold the story so as not to dissipate the magic too soon....

...stay tuned for more...

Hawaii looks beautiful! I hope your re-entry is smooth.
Anemone is one of my favorite words too. I like how it is a flower and a sea creature. That and it is fun to say.
