The Last Aloha
2010 BAIPA Award Winner: Best Historical Fiction.
How did Hawaii become part of America? This story, inspired by true events suppressed for nearly 100 years, is the one James Michener never wrote. In 1886, Laura Jennings travels to Hawaii to live with missionary relatives. She imagines she'll live in a grass hut, ministering to savages. When she arrives in Honolulu, she's surprised to find her relatives are among the wealthy elite plotting to overthrow the Hawaiian monarchy. And, far from being savages, the Hawaiians have developed a charming and prosperous Victorian kingdom. To avoid her conniving uncle's control, Laura leaves to work for the royal family and learns her family's prejudices against them are false. The last Queen, Lili-uokalani, wages a tragic strle to save the Kingdom. Through choices she makes when every avenue is blocked, Laura sees the power that can restore the spirit of a people caught in a turbulent world and discovers how long-hidden secrets of her own family lead the way to reunion.
and irises, plural :) .. the iris that is an adored flower and the iris of one's eye
do you see at the center top, the soulful eye?
no idea how it is there .. just joyfully awed that it is
feels like the loving, protective eye of Holy Spirit
or of a guardian angel ..

Pua Hibiscus Ho‘omau, May through August ‘08
Since I have had my camera, this hibiscus has emerged as one of my most frequent photographic subjects on the mornings and early evenings I am blessed to be at home (thus the dark background to all the photos). It is a survivor I have named Ho‘omau (persistence), for to me it has become a visible manifestation of strength despite all adversity.
I have yet to take a picture of the entire plant for it looks so ragged in total; I have no idea how it has lived and continues to flower. It is one of the first plants we had in our yard, so it is now about 18 years old, yet still a small plant, transplanted twice to escape mysterious diseases (though it still bears the scars of them), and managing to grow in very rocky, unfertilized and ant-infested soil, tangled within and below the shade of another red, domineering hibiscus.
As I sorted through my pictures via Picasa this morning, I realized that it is high time I start ‘listening’ better to what this delicately beautiful survivor may be trying to teach me, thus this set, The Mana‘o of Pua Ho‘omau.
I think she may emerge as a creative exercise for me: When you take photo after photo of the very same thing, though a new blossom each time on a new day, what do you title them all? How do you give each flower (pua) the gift of acknowledgement and appreciation on the one and only day they will live?
