A Hike in the Ko'olau Mountains

Today I hiked the mountains nearby my home. At one point we came upon what I think was an ancient heiau, which is an area that was used as a spiritual center and in another place I spotted a rock that had been wrapped with a Tea leaf, which is what people leave as an offering to Pele, the goddess of the volcanos. As I walked the trails through the river beds and up to the ridge line I could feel the mana and the presence of old Hawaii. Nature is so encompassing here.
And I found the most darling little curlie Q vines...just the right size for a new creation!

Wow what a beautiful place you live in. You got best of both worlds. The sea and the mountains. I love that seed pod. It reminds me of the Star spice that we have in India.

I love your idea:you create when you find materials...so I think you haven't a 'WAREHOUSE', Stef
