The naupaka flower and legend, among so many other flowers, Leis, legends, and all about Hawaiian history and mythology (so many stories)
A hui hou, po.
Getting out there to throw some 🌸 🌺 for you. First time we went here was when you and Ang took us out kayaking, there was some 🍷 involved 😊, remember? It happened to also be my early bday surprise party yesterday. It made me feel a little bit less sad. Happy to be surrounded by loved ones. Definitely thinking about you. Because life is too short not to be around beautiful people
I can’t believe you’re gone. You know i love you, you know that after you left I always missed you, and we’ll miss you forever. You were one of my best friends here, right after we met, and you were a truly good friend. I always thought you would come back and we could continue having each other in our lives. You’re some of the most beautiful and caring people I’ve ever met. I really wish I could’ve been there for you, I would’ve flown there in an instant. Sorry I didn’t. Hawaii and the world will miss on such a BEAUTIFUL human being. I’m confused, I’m heartbroken, I’m angry and upset you’re gone, because there’s just so much for us to share in this life, Ryan. But I’ll see you in the next one, and I hope you’re at peace now Ryan.
As we prepare for the first hurricane to (hopefully not) hit Oahu since I don’t know how long, I need to remind myself to look at the glass half full (if it looks half empty it’s only cuz I drank the rest!) to enjoy the beautiful sunset on this island, to fill every container in my house with water, to pack REALLY the essentials (basically documents, a change of clothes, and food for my pups) and pray, or whatever you do cuz I don’t really pray, pray or wish we will stay safe and like many others say “nothing will happen”. And I hope they’re right. I’m more on the worry side, I’m a worrier, I can’t help it. I worry when I fly, worry when my animals get sick, worry when we get a (fake) alert about ballistic missile incoming, I worry. But I also think, I have a fucking great life. So cheers 🥂 , TO LIFE !
