Kauai is such a wonderful place for families to come and celebrate a special event. Kal turned 80 ( he doesn’t look a day over 70) and his family came from all corners of the globe to celebrate and honor this man. Through the gusty wind and the threat of rain, sons, daughters, partners, and grand children were all there to make this such a happy occasion.
This session made me think a lot about family. My own family. I thought about how nice it would be for us all to be together, my mom and dad, my two sisters, my brother-in-law, and most of all my son. My dad just turned 80 too and I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. Time goes by so fast. I try to picture myself at 80 and my son at 50. Then I thought about what the word family means to me and realized I have made my island family here on Kauai for which I will be forever grateful. So enough about the future and certainly enough about the past because I’m walking right here in the present and cherishing every minute of it.
