    The Big Island - Hawaii

    Heading to the Big Island for two weeks starting tomorrow. Staying in Waikoloa with a couple of friends from back in the day. Looking forward to some sunshine, warm breezes, ocean smells, running without fear of falling, and working out with a different group of nuts as Celeste calls them at CrossFit Kawaihae.

    There's a petroglyph park right next to there.







    The trail runs through some creepy looking woods.


    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    Have you ever done this? It's about 1 1/2 hours from you but it's amazing!
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Nope. Joyce would love it, not sure I can.

    Yup!! Don't ask me when that happened but it did. Never an issue in my youth.

    I'm sorry about that but understand.

    We're going next May and I can't wait to do that zip again.

    Fear of heights is a strange thing. I have it a little bit...I get a bit of vertigo...yet I also love them! It's strange. It really crops up when I'm doing some larger scale hikes. I can't look anywhere other than my two feet to get down from a big mountain. I also once climbed up an observation tower, during a very windy day, and nearly just sat my butt down to hold on for dear life! My hiking partner started horsing around to freak me out even more, and I swear I wanted to shoot him! But I love the exhilaration that I get from the fear of doing it.
    Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live...

    Me, too! I was such a daredevil, I'd climb anything, dive off cliffs, swing out over a pit full of rusty junk on a rope swing...and then it was all over. I freeze. No specific incident. The only time I've been able to overcome it was when HRH (about 5 y.o.) was trapped up on the rope bridge at Busch Gardens with a bunch of teenagers (not supposed to be in the kiddie area) who were bouncing her around like a balloon at a rock concert.
