Sunrise Hawaii

By 6 a.m. the Plumeria blossom is voted  most valuable flower on the island.

Back in the hills in a little grass shack the master photographer mixes organic compounds that will transform themselves into the scintillating hues soon be seen in the brilliant 80 x 100’ tapestry now hanging in the eastern sky.

Time gets a much needed makeover: it’s time for children to become the leaders and the adults to become children who not only share their toys but are happy that others have as much or more than they have.

The imperfect world hides for a few moments in the palm tree outside my window, letting in all the light that I can possibly see, the kind of light that surprises me and is better and better the closer I come toward it.
