haunted a poltergeist lives in the attic of my head feels feelings numbed presently are entranced in the past time the past always leaves the present never stays the future always comes

Plant Based Chef

One of the things vegans don’t tell you is making a lot of your own food often goes very wrong until it starts going right. This isn’t quite a bad thing – it’s a realization I had no true food self knowledge. Vegetarianism is not as challenging because, in my experience, adding cheese, butter, and/or…

Big Island, Aloha!

Did you know aloha means hello, goodbye, as well as love, compassion, peace, and much more?! It is truly a beautiful word encompassing the spirit of Hawai’i, which means the breath (ha) and water (wai) of life from god.  I didn’t get far into Kona, a.k.a the Big Island, before I knew this island was…

And Then There Was Honolulu

View from Diamond Head We get there. We were excited. We got our car. He hooked us all the way up with a Nissan Pathfinder that normally rents for like $100+ day at no additional cost. We were more pumped because we would be able to snooze in the back comfortably (it’s roomy inside and…

Aloha. There were chickens. Chickens and roosters everywhere. From gas stations to restaurants, these feathered birds roamed freely and would walk up to you for food.

I just have to remember what I wanted me to know I was wailing about the inconsequential feeling surrounding my existence. How astrologically doomed I am being left brained. I feel I have to accept somehow I’ll never ascend…

Epiphany

The wonder has captured me, frozen me in something worse than time: indecision. What else could poison your entirety more than the stillness between? The hesitation found when there’s a choice between two? We feel doing nothing is better sometimes, but nothing supports one side, or is it a separate side sometimes? A third option…

Write Around the Corner

If I don’t post once every fortnight or twice a month, I’m keeping myself accountable with an explanation. It’s been an eventful 2 months. How’d my absence go on this long? My partner suggested we evacuate from the social media sphere, which included blogging. We had taken breaks before, but always found our way back…

Judge & Jury You become what you judge people for being To stay humble, see yourself in everyone especially the people you judge Live We live backwards, Trails of disappointments Following us ominously. Let’s live forwards, Trails of possibilities Ahead of us auspiciously. Acceptance Acceptance from others usually comes at the price of not accepting…
