I did learn two interesting facts:
The Hawaiian islands are the most remote islands in the world. They are the farthest away from another land mass. I'd never thought about that before. But, just finding our islands by boat must have been a great accomplishment for early travelers who only had the stars to guide them.
Hawaii has had more plants and animals go extinct here than any other place in the US. This is why gardens and nature preserves are so important.
There was a blessing of the garden.
Fog blooms on my window pane.
Silver dew laces upon the hill.
Rainbows where there once was rain,
Finding myself by being still.
A rooster crows down the lane.
Wrens perch on a mango bough,
Living fully, but not in vain,
Living my life in the here and now.
