Aloha from Maui

Actually, I'm back...I've been back for almost 10 days, but I haven't made the transition yet, odd as this may seem. Here is a 17 second video of me saying "Aloha" to you while swimming in the ocean (yes, with my hat and glasses on too)!

It's LoveHubbie's voice on the video and mine too, wishing you much Aloha!

Aloha, I've been waiting for your return so I could say hello and tell you how much I enjoy your blog.
Hope you had a glorious trip! :) Peace, Mary

Hey Mary, It's great to meet you. I'm going to have a look at your blogs and "get to know you". Aloha, and thank you for visiting, O

Good to have you back.. definitely :) It took me at least 10 days for "re-entry" when I came back from Thailand last month, too. My heart is still there!

I'm about half way through "ascent of humanity". I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

Aloha, Chani! So you understand! This is such a weird thing...my video I'm getting ready to put up explains this for those who may not have experienced it. Still, I think it's something you have to go through, to embrace a culture, and to integrate within it, and then to return to a culture that doesn't resonate with you in the same way.

It will be good to talk about AOH, Chani :)

Aloha, O

Aloha... Yes, I know you understand and for that reason, I will be looking for the video. For those who have not experienced it, it's a mystery how we could cling so tightly to these beloved places. :) S'wadee..

So good to have you back! I'm sure your time spent there was a little slice of heaven :)

Olivia said...

Thanks, Jane. It was different from heaven...more like a slice of real life...true life...making my life here rather dream-like...it's so hard to explain! Thanks for the welcome back. xxoo, O
