Where Have You Been And Started To Sing … ? ~ Part 4


I took this photograph May of 2019, on one of our last days back home in Honolulu Hawaii. The Sun was just going down and the colors grabbed me and chocked me up.

With tears rolling silently down my cheeks I sang …


Aloha Oe


Who would have known at the time that I probably will never return.

It’s been a very difficult year for everyone, but Hawaii has been hit extra hard and I’m certain that we won’t be able to go home again for a very, very long time.

“… one fond embrace, until we meet again.”

    Well, I can certainly say I didn’t start singing just now. Had a hard time keeping my tears out of my poached egg. My heart reaches out to you in your pain.

    On the lighter side, I rarely ‘burst’ out singing but sing almost every time I’m going from one spot to another. As in from barn to barn, walking back to the house, just driving in the car. Mostly nonsensical rhymes to which ever ‘earwig’ I have going in my head. Thank goodness the geese/chickens and dog doesn’t understand them the words don’t always make sense and sometimes to make a rhyme it’s not even a proper word! LOL

      Thank you Gwen for your kind words.
      I should have also linked the history behind the song Aloha Oe.
      I hope that you have read the previous installments to this series of articles that I wrote, they’re a bit more up beat.
      Oh, and MAHALO, thanks for stopping in again, always nice to ‘see’ you and the dragonettes 😉

    Oh, Auntie. This is one of my favorite songs. It is so beautiful. I’m sending you lots of aloha and good vibes that you will visit your island home again soon. A Hui Hou my friend.

      Mahalo, thank you so much my friend.
      I hope that you and Cody are well, and you too will be traveling again soon.
      A hui hou, Aloha.
