Coming Home From Maui Part Two

This video is a continuation from yesterday...it is 1:48 long:



I sort of leave you hanging here, but I'm telling a story---a mo'olelo---and I'm building up to something here in the next several days. You'll see. It's sort of a surprise. I know it was for me :)

wow, thats incredible for you to have such a strong experience after only a couple of weeks. Goes to show where your soul wants to be.
You will make the transition back though!

Olivia, I remember that...reverse culture shock. They say it can take as long to get used to your old culture as you were away from it. So I lived in Japan for 1 year and it took me 1 year to re-adjust to life in America. I hope you're giving yourself space and time to grieve being rippppppped away from your beloved Hawai'i

Yes, I am, Kelly. That's so interesting. I like the term---"reverse culture shock"---as well. I'm betting that when you are uncomfortable in your own culture, or feel like a fish out of water...and then you FIND a culture that fits your values and identity and immerse yourself in it...it can be even harder. This makes sense. See, thailandchani? I might write about this.

Thanks for the insight Kelly, as always, O xxoo

Pretty powerful experience. I feel for you. I have felt that way after going to the city for a few days and then coming home. Usually the anger gets me and causes me to try to examine what's there...
