January 16, 2014
Just returned from ten days of singing and swimming at Hale Kai on the Kona side.
Sixteen singers from Denmark, Belgium, Brazil, Montreal, Georgia, Michigan, Oregon, Florida, California, Vancouver, New York, El Salvador. Wonderful singers filled with ocean sounds, dolphin swims, whale tails slapping, Pele sightings, turtle honu and all the rest that Hawaii inspires in abundance. Lucky us and we felt it. On the last morning we sat at dawn on the lava singing our prayers and telling how we were quenched by Ho'okena. The place name where we lived means quenched in Hawaiian. They each answered in ways that I will hold as the year unfolds so that I remember that I too was quenched.
In February, I will go to Honolulu to have my left hip replaced so that I will then have matching titanium in both hips. I am enthusiastic to return to full strength and feel the power of 2014 welling up on this first full moon of the year. I will post the exact date for the surgery as soon as I know it, hoping for your prayers and songs to guide me through and hold my surgeon steady and strong.
Wishing you all grace and ease to ride the waves that are surely ahead and all around.
E ala E.
