Well, we all have to start out somewhere.
Judging by the bird on dad's head,
I'm guessing this sunbleached little boy lives
here. Lucky kid. Langston Hughes
famously asked, "What happens to a
dream deferred?" One option he neglected
to mention: It eventually comes true.
That's how I feel today after landing on Maui
for a three-month stay. Not to sound greedy, but
even 92 days doesn't seem
like enough. Waiting at arrivals for our pick-up
(thanks, Steph Miller!) I
watched the departing planes with sadness,
knowing that all too soon
one of them will be ours. But with island time
on our side I hope to live a whole new life
till then. It's never too late to begin again.
