It's been a while.

I love the late afternoon tranquil light of upcounty Maui.

Oddly these deep orange/gold/yellow blooms belong to the Silver Oak tree!

I was coming out of Rodeo General when across the street this late night barrel caught my eye.

The Google Street View car has been roaming the Island again. I snapped it as it sat like a sleeping giant at the Hawaiian Canoe Club Hale, it felt sinisterly dormant.

In coming off the water this week I couldn't help but ask this lady about her waterproof gallery. I got totally caught up in looking at all the photo's as she explained some of the magical and important moments in her life.

Talking of magical moments-Ulli's latest antics have become legendary. He just doesn't bloody care. While the rest of us were catching up, Ulles sits down and doesn't see a roof, but a diving board opportunity. It didn't take long for the harness line engineering to ascend said diving board to begin.

Roof divers and paparazzi at the ready.

I'm not sure who was more excited, Ulli for his flawless flying mangina performance or Brook for capturing the moment so perfectly!

And lets not forget Michelle's incredible flat footed back flip and this from a girl with a fear of heights!

Then there was this weeks Fabio meet and greet......absolute farking genius. While other stood in line for who knows what reason, Ulli's mission to take the piss was very clear!

On another note entirely, take the time to watch this audio slide show from Timothy Allen, the only still photographer on the BBC's Human Plant, it's stunning stuff. Peace - out.

"Don't quote me".

"Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it". Confucius.

This feels like a good representation of my transition and transformation. I know I'm on the right path, but have often wondered at what point on my journey am I?

And in the end, as we all know it doesn't matter because the joy is in the journey and there will always breakthroughs and clarity.... followed by new paths.

I love this contrail underlining the moon, whose Latin name is luna and from which lunatic is derived. The ancients believed that lunacy fluctuated with the phases of the's been my experience that waxing and waning is not necessarily required.

OK- back to basics, yes, you are seeing double.... double trouble.

As for this....just make up your own story!

Put your paws up and rest a while under the palapa, and as I started with a quote, I'm going to end with one.

"We do not need to be in a hurry, and there is no time to waste." Miguel Ruiz.

Inspire 'd'.

There's nothing like a bit of flower power to set my appreciation groove rolling.

Hello Iris.
All three were communing in the same garden, lovely stuff.

Morning dew.

One of the locals at Kanaha.

Her feathers will be smelling a bit smokey this morning after the fire on Stable Road. No one was hurt, but there'll be a lot of washing and cleaning going on for those affected by this yesterday.

When I pass this I always want to spray a 'd' on the end.......maybe I will..... and start a graffiti scrabble game.
