I have been struggling for almost a week now with a mighty case of Polynesian paralysis, that condition that strikes malihinis (newcomers) here in Hawaii. The urge to get things accomplished today wanes, the warm weather and languid breezes sap one's energy and whole days seem to float by with little in the way of progress.
I'm giving in.
Instead of the usual "what we are eating today" posts, I'm going to fall back on pretty pictures or pictures that typify Island life to me. Pictures that show the Aloha spirit, or maybe pictures that just amuse me. Like this one.
We were driving out to the beach (10 minutes from where we are staying) when we spied this on the back window of a minivan. We followed the people to their grocery store destination and parked close to them so we could sneak a picture of their humor. Several cars and trucks around here have similar signs on them, but they are truly in memory of a lost loved one - rather sobering. But this one just made us smile on our way to wade in the warm water.
