Home to Kaua’i I promised myself this year I would return home at least once every season.  On Kaua’i that means the wet season, the even-wetter season, and the drying-out-from-the-wet season.  You can’t claim the garden isle to be “the wettest spot on earth” without some drenching downpours!   Fortunately, with rain also comes rainbows [...]

After nearly a year of living out of a suitcase, I am finally home on Kaua’i to breathe in the moist island air…to write, read, climb Nounou once more, and, dare I risk it…take a dip in the ocean? Many assume that I swim, living as I do on a small island in the middle of [...]
