020620: We’re Leaping into the Year!


Aloha Ka Kou,

We’ve moved into the second month of our New Year. It hasn’t got much better for us on the political landscape, but at least we’ve got each other and Kanikapilas! To paraphrase Dory the Fish, “Just Keep Strumming!”

I’ve updated the February Event Calendar for the month. It involved a lot of late night work so please let me know if you find any errors. Mahalo Nui Loa to the UFOhana from Nohea and myself for all the support and Aloha you’ve share with us going into our 20th year.

moving in silence,
heavenly bodies drifting,
gently we begin . . .

Well that’s it for last week. Stay tuned for more of the same-o-same-o this week!

Aloha A hiu hou!

A glimmer of light,
A glow in the dark expanse,
A new star rises.
