Maui Dreaming

I’ve escaped the mid-winter snowfalls and landed right here, on Maui’s Big Beach, for just a few days. My friend, Angela, calls to remind me that when she left Maui she cried for days.

As I sit staring at the ocean with its swells and gigantic turtles, drinking guava juice, eating fresh papaya with lime, slices of Maui Gold pineapple, I realize the joy of letting go and not tormenting myself with the constant: “I should be doing ….”

Right now, I am where I am supposed to be.

Where are you?

    One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Across an old lava flow is its sister beach Little Beach, where the daring go to body surf.

    Love it! I grew up going to Napili Bay on Maui’s west side. Maui is so magical for me. I haven’t been in many years, but it’s one of my favorite spots. The air, the smell of the flowers… it feels like a second home. Enjoy!
