I haven't posted anything for a while, but I had a very good reason: I just came back from MAUI!!!
My husband had read my January post about how much I missed Maui, and so, on my birthday, my surprise present from him was - 10 days in Maui!! My greatest gift in life is having him in it; but this is a gift I will always hold most dear.
It meant so much to me psychologically to be able to go there again after my illness; it is the farthest that I have ever traveled, and I'm happy to say that the trip was amazing. Just to have the chance to be there again was restorative, and soothed my soul.
Emerson wrote: "Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air" - this is exactly what we did there. To me, Maui is a most spiritual place, even though I am not a religious person. Just being there, I feel tremendously at peace; it's difficult to put into words.
I know in my heart that I will return there; hopefully one day to spend the rest of my life in my beloved Maui. Maui, you will always have my aloha...!
