On waves and wind

15 12 2013

A honu (green sea turtle) swam into my life this morning and waved at me. Just when I needed an answer to my question, the creature floated in close to shore, only a wave’s length away. So I started a conversation. It graciously joined in, head and flippers bobbing out of the water for as long as I needed. When the visit ended I turned ma uka (toward the mountains) for the studio, only to see the familiar kolea (golden plover), another confidant who meets me on my walks no matter what time of day, fly across my path, emphasizing the affirmative. I laughed. My question: Should I tell you how much you are loved?
