The Way of Life
I love Hawaii but more so I love the way of live in Hawaii. You are no longer just Shelle or Miah but Auntie Shelle and Uncle Miah to everyone, even complete strangers. People are so generous here. There is no rush or stress or even deadline. Time is a complete standstill. Shoes are rarely worn, shirts- what are those? Miah goes everywhere barefoot and nobody looks in disgust. He even killed a cockroach by stepping on it barefooted, if that is not local, I am not sure what is. While on vacation to the Big Island we came across this town and this is what the stop signs look like...it makes me love it even more and explains how we live here on the Islands.
