Mahaloness will be taking a short break, be back next week, as the crow flies.
…until than be well my friends.
I went to a lake with my best friend
She had never seen a bald eagle soar
Nor bear witness to an osprey’s dive
Near the water’s edge did we see
All of this
And even a hummingbird
and a blue heron
a pair no less!

With the exception of the mongoose, the weasel looking roadkill, and in fact the only true roadkill, all the other images seen here I found in obscure locations, and can only surmise what happened. The piece of slimy skin looked and felt like rubber, I found it washed up on the beach, it looked like maybe it was from a shark, or from remnants of a shark attack on a dolphin, or something with grey rubbery skin, and the bird with the wings outwards was in the middle of a field next to a cliff on the North shore of Maui, inexplicable, it’s feet we’re missing? The little bird I found in a stone labyrinth, I ended up giving the little fella a burial, under a really old palm tree, it looked to have fallen form it’s nest. The lizard was strange, beautiful coloration, perhaps the casualty of an island cat. In nature there is life and there is death, a ongoing cycle, though not necessarily true for every species, some never return, they become extinct, perhaps this is natural evolution, I do not know. It really is a complex world we live in, full of mystery, or is it strange happenstance. This is a small collection of documented moments whilst exploring, perhaps signs, to be aware of my own mortality, and a fundamental truth, that I will die one day, and therefore take each day as a beautiful gift, however it comes, being grateful, the Tao of Mahaloness.
FotoMahaloness -a few selections of imagery to support the words, or perhaps the pictures say what all needs to be said. Hey Picasso, is this art?!
