Although I have managed to find my happiness once again here in Maui (could it be the Vitamin D nourishment from the sun?), I am still somewhat stalled at the lack of happiness around me at times. I’m still trying to determine if it is because I live in a tourist trap and people are just exhibiting vacation activity overload or it’s something else.
But in any case, I’m longing for the road to Hana…I understand it is truly wild. And I, am truly unconvinced, and suspect that it’ll be shorn with a handful of family operations selling my ideal of Hawaii, only to be plastered over by neo-hippies pretending to be wilding like the olden days.
But not being one to knock something desirable that I haven’t tried, I’m dreaming of the road to Hana…strange how far away it seems. After I greet the whales, it’ll be time to stuff my bag full of water, water treatment paraphernalia and a sturdy pair of tabis and maybe shoes…I’m hitting that road…to Hana.
