Good Morning, God!
I’m HOME! This morning I went for a jog off to the post office — two miles, or so, of being BACK in Hawaii.
First the pink ginger — before I even got out to the street. And then a spider lily that spilled forth its petals with JOY. Yellow hibiscus and even oleanders called out to be admired.
I was back in my Technicolor World, God! Inside buildings, which seems to be where I spend a lot of my time, it is easy to forget COLOR and FLOWERS
In Colorado, they had only had three days of sunlight in the whole month of April. Hmmm. We did “bring” the sun and the snow covered mountains and tiny bluebells were delightful. Even the Spring Snow that blanketed the ground on our last day was a thrill.
It was all beautiful and enchanting. But, I am so thankful to be living in Hawaii! Not just the flowers and colors and climate, God.
I sort of feel we in Hawaii “discovered” diversity. We have no “majority.” We are ALL MINORITIES. And we belong together.
Now, when I was in LA, Suzy and I did the marvelous ethnic restaurants of LA. And the mix of peoples is so much richer than when I was growing up in LA. The World is coming to us, God, and bringing Great Food.
But, in LA there are still neighborhood that are distinctly Ethnic. In Honolulu we are much more interwoven — and I love it! It is so GOOD to be home, God!
