Day 18: What’s your passion?

Last night, I was struck by Hawea’s inspired state as she bustled about the kitchen, preparing dinner. She was creating from the heart, working from a place of passion.

Black Friday, Sunshine style

Aaaaaahhhh, it’s good to be home!!! Yesterday’s flight from LA to Hilo was super smooth. Lots of empty seats (I guess most people don’t fly on holidays), so there was plenty of room to stretch out and rest. The plane landed an hour ahead of schedule, making for a darn good ending to a really […]
