  •             I circle around the slab of rock that has been placed inside of walls and is now presented under a light for all to see.

  • The peak of Mt. San Jacinto is10,834 feet in elevation, about two miles above my home in Palm Springs, California. I have often gazed at the peak, in awe of its grandeur and getting a slight sense of vertigo from my intense fear of heights. At a towering five foot one myself, this mountain has...

  •              I stepped out onto the ground at the airport on the Big Island.  It was exactly how I imagined it. Tribal, made only of palm trees and other Polynesian plant life.  It was the smallest airport I’d ever set foot on.  Just as my feet hit the ground I heard the stereotypical “Aloha” and...
