Beach Walk 720 – Unruffled: That is My Goal

I admire Barack Obama’s ability to stay cool in public. David Brooks, of the New York Times, pointed this out to me – that in fact over two years of intense campaigning, he did not rant, did not get petty. This sense of resolve and non-ranting in public is a Hawaiian value, onipaʻa, from the the time of the overthrow of the monarchy. It was the motto of King Kamehameha V and Queen Liliʻuokalani. You will find that ranting in public will not get you many results here in the land of Aloha.

Hawaiian Word:
Onipaʻa; _determination, resolute_

Beach Walk 463 – One Minute Rant

Grrrr. I thought I was so organized today. But arrived at the beach without my newly charged battery. I was so frustrated. I managed to eke out a fun episode though.

I consider it an homage to my many friends who are willing and able to let their raves and rants all hang out. Here are a few of my faves: Rupert Howe, Clintus McGintus, and Steve and Zadi on Jet Set

Please join me for a stress-reducing one-minute rant! Underwater!

Hawaiian Word:
Nuku: rant
