Aloha and Aloha
Vacation. Twelve days of it with our annual family “retreat” to Maui. Some days seemed too long, some too short. Ups and downs, highs and lows. Typical family vacation stuff. Fun fact about me: I loath traveling for long periods of time (i.e. the act of physically getting to one place to the other, like airports and being stuck in a crowded, uncomfortable, back achingly, germ-filled airplane with clueless passengers, shitty food and vomit bags at the ready, for example,) but love being in a place that we all find to be so magical.
A family vacation, especially when traveling with extended family and kids, can really only be so relaxing. But I think overall we did a pretty good job of practicing aloha and everyone had a great time and got what they wanted out of the trip. I came home yesterday feeling relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated and looking forward to getting back to some serious writing. And giving more love to this blog again – which you may have forgotten you subscribed to since its been some time since I’ve posted. Poor blog. Besides the vacation I’ve been distracted with other (rather fun and cool) projects, which are winding down now so I can refocus again on words and things. Like the new book about adoption in America, a couple of screenplays and bothering you nice people from time to time. Stay tuned and mahalo for hanging in there. Aloha!
