For a while, I was having a hard time to come up with a place I could connect with!! Although I was born and raised on the eastern slopes of Haleakala in a town called Ulupalakua, I never really felt a connection there or felt like I could revisit and feel a sense of peace. Revisiting this place always made me feel like I had to leave, even when I'd go to visit Ha'iku, where there was family on an aina I was familiar with, I always felt like I had to leave eventually. When I thought of my church and its foundation and what that meant to me, the thoughts started to flow...so here i go, digging deep for thoughts and mo'olelo that would prevail truth to it all somehow!! Wish me luck as i start to find my roots :D
