Last weekend we attended a birthday party for a friend in Haiku Maui - he's now 98 years young. In addition to celebrating his birthday, he was also celebrating his 1 year wedding anniversary and the opening of his art gallery. He makes some colorful oil paintings of Maui scenes, which you can see hanging outside his studio here. We should all be so lucky to have a long rich life.
These beautiful dancers are from Palau, a small island nation in the Pacific. They have such warm smiling faces, and they were so graceful, I just had to post these pictures. The party was very friendly and casual on their Haiku farm. This family has really got it down - they grow so much of their own food, and take care of their own. One daughter is a well respected potter, with her own kiln and workshop on the property. It was really inspirational to be there.
