Mākua: This ʻĀina's arms are always open

After I got home from Makua today I checked the temp--91 feels like 100. Yikes! Yes, we were cooking! But it was worth it because the valley was so beautiful, is always so beautiful.

Friday's rain must have drenched the whole landscape. Puddles of water here and there. The valley looked sunny and bright and cooled down. We had a small group today, so plenty of opportunities to share stories and jointly appreciate being in the presence of this valley. So appreciate that this aina's arms are always open to us.

Wish we could clean something, or trim grass, or plant natives. Just gotta wait til those other guys leave. Maybe sooner than we think.
