Beach Walk 4 – Beauty and Rain

E komo mai and welcome to show number 4 of Beach Walks with Rox. We caught a break between showers. It was one of those days when the islands of Maui and Molokai were visible 40 miles in the distance. I don’t understand what makes that so breath-taking, the visage of another island. I guess it is partly the deep connection I feel with the rest of humanity. Including you.

About Today’s Show:

I talked about beauty today. The beauty of fellow women video podcasters Amanda of Rocketboom and Cali of As compared to my own unprepped and pre-showered morning self. I find it quite liberating and something I am not sure I could have comfortably done before living in Hawaii.

I also noticed the coincidence of starting our first week of videos, with rain and dark clouds every day! Not the usual “beauty” one thinks of for Hawaii. Yet it has been a beautiful week for me and I hope for you too. In writing up this post, I looked to see what the dictionary had to say for beauty, and it included this lovely synchronicity to my comments in the show: In poetry, beauty is shown by references to nature, especially to the sea and rain. The discussion on rain is also quite beautiful! I had forgotten there are so many ways to know rain in Hawaiian.

We all become more beautiful when we are loved, and if you have self-love, then you are always beautiful. –Alice Walker, The Color Purple
