Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half

               

                    Two Halves of a Day


 Ben H. posts for this week’s 

challenge: ” … share an image that has two

clear halves, literally or figuratively…”

For my post this week,   I  am excited to share

our recent trip to the island of  Kaua’i.

I was fortunate to celebrate my second 

Hawaiian ceremony,  to mark the rising of

the sun with the chanting of   E  Ala E…

( to awaken).

First Glimpse, Kaua’i, 2015

The Sunrise is a significant event ~ it is a renewal.  The chant is a call to leave all the heavy burdens of yesterday behind and start fresh for a new journey…

E Ala E (Awaken), 2015

One’s not half of two; two are halves of       one.            ~ E. E. Cummings

The latter part of the day, was just as

magnificent! We discovered more of the

island’s pristinely beauty. 

Polynesian Adventure Tour with Jack, 2015
 
It was a thrilling Wailua River Tour plus a

Waimea Canyon adventure, with a bus driver 

who gave us Q and A on legends, trivia and

and bits of history of Kaua’i/Hawaii…  

  

For all of us who have some days when we see the glass half~full or half~ empty:  “The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns;  The pessimist stares at the  thorns, oblivious of the rose.”

~ Kahlil Gibran
