Five weeks have passed since I arrived in Hawaii to live with my sister and her fella in a refurbished barn in a rainy little town called Holualoa. Sometimes I can't imagine leaving the house because of the way the rain falls so perfectly. But of course, the ocean, beaches, sunshine, and lots of wonderful people are always waiting a short distance away.
This island is magical.
Not in the ways that I expected,
but I'm learning, and all is well.
I've spent the last three days listening to the rain and to music, making jewelry, writing, cooking, and barely leaving the house. I've also discovered the magic of coffee flavored ice cream in my coffee. Jewelry stock is growing and new ideas keep on flowing.
