Travel day back from the Big Island to home. It's been a great and interesting week, and marked a number of firsts. I'm sure the boy and I will do it again (vacation that is), but he'll never have his first trip to Hawaii again. A lot of things I'll never have again too. But I suppose that is the wrong way to think about it...instead ponder all the things that I already have (which is everything, if one believes Buddhist thought) and what I can do today. It is a new start. So onto the plane and head east with the setting sun behind us. But knowing that tomorrow will be a fresh start.
Aloha and mahalo.
