Ola i ke ahe lau makani.

June 25, 2008

Ola i ke ahe lau makani. Hawaiian for, “Life is in a gentle breath of wind.” It was said usually of a nice breeze on a hot day on the water, and I just love the saying. It really reflects what I’ve learned this summer, the simple pleasures that are out there, and how great they can really be. I’ve always sort of been carried through life by the little things, an email from an old friend, a beautiful view, random acts of kindness, song lyrics that hit me just right at the time. Here, I feel like my life is made up of those little moments, a good cup of tea, singing to songs together in a car, a nice walk to work, sunsets out my window every night, and it’s just so…wonderful.
