Wow, its only been a year since my Intersections Residency at UH. It seems like so long ago. I guess 2008 was an intense and eventful year all around. The loss of a parent and the birth of a child can skew ones perception of time.
I checked back one year and saw that I had posted about going to the beach with the kawabata family, and seeing whales playing in the ocean. Those were magical and memorable times. I hope that our daughter Kaelani will have an opportunity to experience this for herself one day with her parents.
I plan to instill in her a deep appreciation and value for all things karaoke. To anyone out there whom might catch this, thanks for sharing in the amazing norae process.
