And did I mention lush?
Forget cedar hedging, Hawaii does it right!!!
Part of getting my palm is summed up with the coconut palm. In many respects it's not the most beautiful (though wonderful), but it has a presence about it. I think it's the way it seems to stretch upward. And then there's the way it seems to shimmer in the right light. Ultimately the coconut evokes the tropics and thereby resonates with my heart.
But much more than warmth, palm trees, tropical vactions, etc, my visit to Maui felt like a breath of fresh air. It was one of those much needed suspended moments in time where you just hit pause. Where you can take time out and think clearly. See clearly.
And while suspended, the realization that the moment is fleeting makes things all the sweeter.
