E tita -- wahi a kuu lohe he senior project kau. Ma anei paha kaua e kuka kamailio ai. I hear you have a sr. proj. comin up. Right hereʻs a good place to talk about it - or ma ka leka uila (on email; if you havenʻt already figured it out, I donʻt like phones.) Have you considered a kahili project: research, interview, make, photograph. Pops would be a great resource/mentor. Or maybe a Kailua place-name photo project: research, take photos, write up a description of each. Kahi and I could mentor. Maybe I could get Kapulani involved. Anyway, leka uila mai (zap me an electric letter).
Kapulani is a native Hawaiian photographer; maybe the best we have. Her last two books are black and white studies of storied/sacred places: Na Wahi Pana o Koʻolaupoko and Na Wahi Kapu o Maui. Both provide proud, subtle examples of an oiwi way of seeing our world. A certain anakala of yours wrote the intro to the last one.
hey doo doo nice you pics:)
so i was thinking and when you told me about goin over 7 bridges and coming back you only go over 6 it made me really wanna go. just the sound of it freaks me out. but yea. lets go. can u imgaine kupu on it lol.
E Kianers -- mahalo nui au i kau kiʻi i paʻi ai. You can have my no-pay job anytime you want. If not, at least I know that thereʻs another quirky eye at work. I got an asthma attack laughing (and not laughing) over the facial expressions captured in Aetoʻs one-finga salute to da untidy states, and I was brought back to good health by the black and white shots of ʻohe kapala and pohaku kuʻi ʻai. Keep at it; itʻll soon be time to introduce you to Kapulani Landgraf.
yes maam; he wrote it for mom :)
i ka wa kahiko, kaulana o kailua i ka hala. there was a famous grove called kekele at the base of the pali, said to have the most fragrant hala. so the song is for kailua, its fragrant hala, and its many wahine kaulana...
hey, does being on maoliworld count as research now in high school??! hahahaha
are you looking at uncle moe keale's cd? if so, that's actually elua mele - waialae is one; mapuna ka hala o kailua the other. aw i wish we had time to talk about this ma ka papa hula. or you could ninau ia anakala kihei - ua haku o ia i kela mele!
