O wau iho no,
A man in his forties identified himself as a member of the “next generation” … “Since our Kupuna are passing on, I’m stepping up.” He gave the most powerful delivery of the evening and pretty much wrapped up the night. He took the microphone and stood before them, making eye contact with each of the panelists. He spoke to them of their responsibilities to their creator, to their children. “You know this is wrong. But everybody’s got to eat eh?.. You just doing your job, aren’t you?” His tone was sometimes loud and sometimes soft and he covered a range of emotions and fears that were present in the room. He spoke about the fear generated from the lies being told by the government to the people. He spoke clearly and delivered to them this message: “This mountain is not your mountain. It’s the most sacred mountain. It’s not your place to allow it to be contaminated.”

I'm a little sad. Our ohana gathering that was planned for November had to be postponed until next summer. Debt plagues us all so we are going to have to do a bit of fundraising in the meantime and pay down those debts. Our daughter's business here is going under and she's had serious health problems too that we will hopefully have under control by next summer. Check out my profile... I'm putting up some pics of our mountain home.
It's been awhile. We've been really busy here. Snow is finally gone and now it's time to til the earth and start planting some seeds for fall harvest. Buds are filling up on the apple trees and the bears are starting to look for free grub... gotta be careful around those guys. They're always a little grumpy when they first wake up. Even the deer are a bit 'snorty' when approached. Our daughter ran into an elk on her walk home from town, but at least he was happy eating the grass alongside the road.
This is a vast country, but a lot of the issues here are the same as elsewhere... water for one. Due to global warming, the glaciers are shrinking and they are the source of all our water. In many places the water from the tap is not safe to drink. We are on a 'boil water advisory' and the water on most First Nations reserves is so polluted, it's deadly. So much of the food in the market comes from so far away and is GMO. In fact, much of the vegetables in the store now comes from China. So, the push is on to grow our own... as much as we can.
I've been making a lot of friends here and hoping that maybe I can meet some of them when we go to Hawaii in November for our ohana gathering.
Stay in touch,
a hui hou,
Thanks for the friend request. I also use Ho'oponopono. Nice to meet you!
Any mana'o you'd care to share on the MU, I'd be happy to receive =)
Thanks for the invite. Joining the virtual world in may realms. Time to continue the flow...
I just caught the caption for the picture above. I would be interested in any mana'o you care to share on the MU.
Mahalo for your words of encouragement. Ke ala o Alo'ha'aha'a i ke lapa'au ana o ka lahui. O ke ala au ia 'ike'ole ia'u. Ke 'ike ana i'au o ke ala i Uhini Pili i wale no.
People over here no can hear what I say, as I'm sure you know. If I wrote it, they wouldn't see it. I couldn't if I wanted to, anyways. Makemake has made Kahiki nui a barren wasteland in ka maka::--
""Sweetly beckoning me back to my motherland,
Home, home to beautiful Hawai`i.
She whispered,"E ho`i mai."
Mahalo, and, oh yea, kala mai the ill Hawaiian Grammar ;p
