Ho'olohe Pono, listen well, intently, rightly and carefully. This summer (July 2016) I was privileged to live with the community of Waimānalo, Hawaii. I learned the value of listening to mo`olelo (stories) of the Hawaiian kānaka maoli (native people) and kūpuna (elders). Their love for the aina (land), o'hana and 'IO (creator) enriched me. I have been challenged and strengthened by the aloha (love) and hospitality of this community. I have compiled a few diptics of my time on the Island of O'ahu. View more photos here.
