“It’s so warm to the touch.” his six year old eyes watches the viewing ball roll into the palm of his hand.
“Son, respect the power which the light contains.” his father half hidden in the shadows of the sunlight. “The Sun is the source of all life but we can steal its power. Carefully, we must be careful about it.”
“Someday, I will walk on the Sun. I’ll bring back a whole bunch more than this little ball!” The boy rises lifting the ball back towards its home.
“Icarus, my boy. No man can approach the Sun. The gods will never allow such a thing.” his father laughs at the youth.
6. Onism (n.)) the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time, which is like standing in front of the departures screen at an airport, flickering over with strange place names like other people’s passwords, each representing one more thing you’ll never get to see before you die—and all because, as the arrow on the map helpfully points out, you are here.)

Inside the dense frustration of my evening, contrivance creeps. Promise etches a mandala. Feelings ride a railroad hearten by condemned love always arriving in onism.

Probation isn’t a word in Hawai’i. When you were kapu, or broke a serious law you were to be killed or could swim across 20 miles or so of rough seas to live on a very small patch of land. But you were protected by these figures.
There’s a southern most point everywhere. This is the United States most southern point. Sorry Key West or any other territory, this is Hawaii. Technical there is another place that is part of this area but it isn’t a beach or green. And this is the only completly green beech in the world as well. It’s a 2 1/2 mile braided poor excuse for a road (without 4WD a good awful hour wagon each way). Notice the back of the Jeep and top of the cliff in second picture.
But why go? Its a collapsed volcano crater littered with olivine (peridot to those bigger crystals, birthstone for August). You can see deep blue to turquoise waters. Swim or get beat by 7-10 feet waves. But mostly to see exotic beauty of rugged Hawaii.
The surf plays hell with even it’s sea creatures. One endangered Honu, Hawaiian Green Turtle got tossed over the lava and coral. Next high tide, she’ll be fine. It’s also hefty fine to “rescue” them
A surfers beach work golden sand set way back from the water. It’s only 1 1/2 miles down a road that’s rental car worthy
