Aloha from Hawaii

Above, Deborah, shortly after she picked me up from the airport.

I shot this photo the day we decided to go to the top of Haelakala, the big volcano on Maui. We went up with Deb's friend Maha to have a manifestation ceremony on the new moon. I made Maha stop as soon as we got above the clouds.

At the very top the crater was spectacular, like standing on the moon.

Below, Deb with her new acquaintance, Baby.

Below, Iao's Needle and surrounding park.

Below are a few of the photo's I shot of Deb's pre-school. Deb is a Waldorf teacher, based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. Whenever she wants the kids to do things (clean up, wash your hands for lunch, etc.) she sings "clean up, clean up" or "wash hands wash hands" and they jump to do what she wants. No plastic toys are allowed, only things that are made of natural substances. At snack time she feeds them brown rice or millet or fruit and the kids love it. She only speaks to them is a soft, calm voice and they really respond to it. I've learned a lot from watching her.

Below, the kids love the organic garden because they're allowed to eat the strawberries, carrots and beans whenever they want.

Last, but not least, a sunset from Deb's yard.
