Lost On Maui :0)

It s Tuesday june 3ard 2014..we have been on this patch of land far out in the pacific just over 9 months and a few days ,minutes even!
Truth be told if it was to be measured in Maui time I personally have logged 8808.5 Hours to date with Cynthia coming in at 7200.5 ...Thats a lot of time when you think about it in our short life spans.

Its been a long journey and at times a lonely one as even the deepest of human relationships can not fill some voids. Cynthia is an amazing soulmate, great trail blazer,but some trails are meant to be walked alone just you and your creator. 
The words from the famous football song “you will never walk alone” come to mind but I think that was for lonely Horace in Boise Idaho walking home on fifth street serenading his dog Bingo on the other side of midnight.

I,m sitting outside Lahina public Library on my beach chair looking a cross the water to the Island of Lanai. Its a hot early morning but I have the canopy of a large tree with a cool breeze flowing in from lanai`s direction, I`m still except for the clatter of the keys as I take my thoughts for a stroll across the key board of my good friend Mac!

I,m surrounded by an international force of tourists ,locals  ,lets face it its the land of Eternal summer. Just came through winter here and I have a fine Tan?

Went snorkeling yesterday at Napali Cove , got real up close and personal with a 5 ft Turtle,hung out with him for 25 minutes till he finally waved good bye as he headed for deeper water where the tigers and great whites live and this Irishman wont go. 

When we first met he was in ten feet of water in a coral cave I had followed him in and then went topsides to watch. After about ten minutes of waiting patiently, he waved his flipper at me and swam up to meet me. It was an awesome moment,total trust. 
No I did not touch him thats illegal out here,big fine. But lets put it this way our eyes met at bout 6 inches and I pulled away as by his time I was surrounded by other snorkelers. Then began a game of dive and surface among the coral and shoals of colorful fish for about 15 mins , nobody else came any closer. I like them on my first experience with turtles kept a safe distance, after all they are Tiger sharks favorite Quiz zine.
Well on we swam or glided and then he met a fellow turtle who had his own entourage of human followers, we were all so focused on our turtles that there was a momantery clash of bodies and fins as we all changed course.

This business of letting go and allowing God to strip this Irishman naked sure has some nice attractions along the way , things I would have missed if I had not been still and let him be God and the turtle Take this Hare on the race of his life!

Love to you all
