Lei Niho Palaoa...


I am Blessed to have a collection of lei niho palaoa, whale teeth ornaments, traditionally strung on human hair. I love dressing up others and seeing the pride they possess wearing such mea Hawai'i of great history and Mana. Even the children in schools, even their teachers, love the lei niho along with the mahiole (woven helmet) and 'ahuli'i or 'ahu'ula (feather cloaks). 

A good friend asked me, when I procured another one, whether it was for me to personally wear. As incredibly Beautiful as it was, and as humbled as I felt, I laughed and said "no" in good Spirit. I let him know that I wore a lei niho palaoa in the 17th Century on the Island of Maui. Because of my Ego and Lust for Power, many, many innocent people died, many being slaughtered in wars over resources, land and out of pure Spite. Sacred precious Life spilled across the fields of lava due to my Ego. 

The lei niho palaoa for me would only be a painful reminder and symbol of that lust for power I so coveted back then. That might be why, in this Life, I ended up spending a good portion caring for our dead. Our Beloved Ancestors...

My recent heart issues a few years ago were a direct result from carrying that guilt on my Soul. I had to ask for Forgiveness, from them, and then Forgive myself which was the most difficult. Tears poured forth in a torrential flow during the release. Spiritual trauma can last through generations. Some of the trauma carried over into this Life and manifested in a continuing war within myself. 

I had to finally end it...

I made a new pōhaku friend in the Wailuku river bed yesterday at 'Iao. He was just laying there in the debris staring up at the sky. This is why we have to mālama our pōhaku washing down in the torrential rains...

How Could You Ever...

Kia'i...


I have lived in our apartment building for almost twenty-years now. Tonight when I came home, I noticed this Kia'i, or Guardian, staring intently towards the entrance to our building. It is the first time I have ever seen him. Maybe he just arrived...

Love Never Ending...

Sprinkles...


Late at Night, I like to sit outside on my balcony and listening to music that brings back so many memories while gazing down upon the places where many of these memories actually took place. I also go through photos remembering such Beautiful experiences and Beautiful people. It fills my Soul, Heart and Spirit with so much Powerful Positive and Healing Energy and Love. Then I sprinkle all that good Healing Energy and Love down upon everyone below. Several Mega-Tons of it every week...

Memories...


In the past ten-years, I have amassed somewhere over 500,000 photos to go through on various hard-drives, CDs, DVDs and other storage devices. I keep shooting new material and have so many unfinished albums and unpublished photos.

I had one computer crash and lost about 10,000 photos. It takes me hours and hours each week to download, process, edit, upload, organize or otherwise handle the unmanageable amount of photos, just to find the one that inspires me to write and post.

I plan on sharing as many photos as I can in this Lifetime but it may take me years, or even decades to do so. It will be nice when people see themselves or a loved one, and go, "Oh my God! That's me from like twenty-years ago!"
