Hōʻailona...


I was working on the case of a very significant ali'i wahine burial where the kupuna held two large ivory lei niho palaoa, or carved hook pendants of whale teeth, in her hand. I exited our office building, walked over to our parking garage, and glanced up. Two large lei niho palaoa, back to back in the sky. By the time I retrieved my camera, they were dissipating already.

Sometimes meant just for the viewers' eyes, but nobody would believe me without a picture. I stopped trying to photograph all the hōʻailona I see, because many disappear before I can capture them. I stopped trying to prove to people they exist. Now, I just inhale, exhale, and enjoy the amazing magical moment...
