Hilina Pali 2, Line & The Floor

Weaving in between
Circles and lines
Drawn back like gravity
Over time
Doors we enter
Can often seem like floors
Gang of trees fighting over a wig-
It fell
 Fire dancers keeping watch at the entrance of the forest, snagged it!

Pahoehoe - smooth lava below..
 Our hope
 The spring out of ashes
 Hawaiian Petroglyphs - Hilina Pali

Another view from the bottom-
 Contrast of earlier flows and sky as well as growth - 

The elements are pretty diverse here and in the above photo it just feels strange to be so close and level with the deep blue ocean like that.
(This was about where we parked)
Notice the smoke from the volcano.. very tame, but can change in a moment~

Wonderful pictures and thoughts. I got a really good laugh about the trees fighting over the wigs! And I love your thought about doors sometimes seeming more like floors.

Just stopped by before I head out for pneumatic compression therapy. I love your images and your narrative evokes some deep thought. I esp. like the line "doors can seem like floors". Something to ponder....have a wonderful day! (p.s. thanks for leaving comments at my blog post yesterday. I haven't had time yet to post replies there ;-)

I feel the power of the land of your island. Those plants and undulation look so unique to me.

I feel the earth move under my feet..haha song sounds familar by Carole King. Nice terrain cracking up and the tall gigantic trees which inspires the movie Avatar. tQ.

This landscape moves me every time I enter your blog... Is the poem yours? "doors we enter can often seem like floors". This moves me and opens me too

i really really really like the first and last shot. the designs in the lava are amazing and awesome, or is it just rock. so beautiful and something I have never seen or will see. i guess these sights are common to you but to me they are so different than my every day life. beautiful and I like the view UP to the top of that beautiful tree.

I went to sleep late like you and woke up late and very tired today so have rescheduled one of my treatments. I looked up the Champion juicer which I've seen before but wanted to make sure. It is a high quality juicer so you are likely able to get even more goodness out of the veggies and fruit you juice. I like my juicer too because it is easy to take apart and clean and has a big chute so that I don't have to spend all kinds of time chopping veggies (not my fav. thing). I wish I could do more with the fibre left behind though. I sometimes add it to the compost but don't always feel like doing that so down the garburator it goes. I'd put it directly in the garden but that would attract pests. Hope you are having a good day my friend and that you get a chance to make some yummy juice.
