The internet famous Lexi Dogg died. We are celebrating her life. Please share your stories – we’d love to know about them.

Lexi was a celebrity dog of the internet era, making her debut in 2006 as the star of Beach Walks with Rox. Within the first year, she had fans from around the world who would send her birthday cards and gifts, who left comments for her, and who found her on the beaches of Hawaii to take her picture. Aside from the nearly 780 episodes, she is a fixture in countless home movies and pics taken by travelers to Hawaii! [Read more…]

Beach Walk 212 – Memory storage

Teaching and learning intersect nicely with a wedding party on Lanikai Beach.

I decided to do another show on the topic from yesterday, but I barely got into it when I encountered some wise women just returning to shore from a sunrise wedding out on the Mokulua Islands. Yes, it is magical walking the beach…the new people I meet. And having Beach Walks gives me a reason to talk to them and share the experience with you.

“We teach what we want to learn” takes the pressure off of having to be a perfect teacher on the one hand and also recognizing that teaching is a great way to learn things! (I learned this from Jack Canfield 15 years ago.) My #2 used to think I had to be a know-it-all before I was allowed to hold myself out as a teacher. Silly little girl.

I learned today that the Hawaiians think of the naÊ»au (gut) more than the heart as the seat of feelings and the women I met also mentioned their perspective on bellies and memory storage. Watch and then tell me where you store your memories or what’s in your gut today?

Aloha nui loa to Paʻa and Chad for a happy marriage together!
