The other night I walked home… And I came upon a woman that reminded me of my Mother… Except my Mother didn’t smell of urine or have a swollen infected foot with rotten bandages… We talked for a while. She reminded me of my Mother… Except my Mother didn’t have flies buzzing around her…and carry around little bags of rotten food… We talked about all kinds of things in life. Some made sense. Some didn’t. At least not to me. At least not right then and there. But who am I to judge… She really reminded me of my Mother… Except my Mother didn’t have a plastic trash bag wrapped around her legs as her only means of keeping warm on a blustery rainy night… And my Mother wasn’t beholden to a wheelchair… She spoke kindly and laughed here and there. Much like my Mother… She also had soft clear eyes and was overly self-conscious about her appearance and perceived body odor… Much like my Mother when she was bed ridden… I asked her what she needed the most.

My boys and I noticed a low lying rainbow, or ua koko, above Kapalama as we were eating outside of Costco this afternoon. When we exited the warehouse about a half-hour later, we noticed the rainbow was much higher and right above was the clear profile of a woman with hair flowing and arm outstretched pointing towards 'Ewa and Wai'anae. She had eyes, nose, mouth and all features. We all stopped in disbelief. I captured what I could with my iPhone camera which leaves so much to be desired. Koa also said he saw a Mo'o, or lizard by her neck. I saw what looked like a Manō , or shark, near her body. Mahalo Ke Akua...
