Beach Walk 742 – Huli Heaven

It’s been a long time since we’ve been out on the water together. Our friends Eric, Stacey, and Kaile got a new 4-man outrigger canoe. Shane, Eric, and I took it out – saving a seat for you! I have missed being on the water, and hope you enjoy this episode – oh so Hawaii.

Huli means to roll over in Hawaiian, and though we caught several awesome waves, we also caught a 360! It was a great day, made better in my memory by the amazing song, "The Ocean" by Barefoot Truth. Please follow that link to iTunes and purchase a copy in support of them. Mahalo to MadGringo for sending us box of t-shirts and tops – Eric said of his, “This is the coolest shirt ever!”

Hawaiian word:
Huli: to turn, to curl over

Beach Walk 728 – Winter Lumiere

Lumiere is a film tradition involving a fixed camera, no editing whatsoever, and typically even no sound. I left the sound in though as I love hearing the waves. Scroll down to the bottom of any page to see a list of all the categories. I love this style especially at the beach – somehow the magic of a minute can capture the serenity, the solitude, the vastness of the ocean, the playfulness of children – all without any words or planning at all.

I am practicing getting out of the way, and letting grace happen. Even Lexi stayed off camera for all but a few frames. 🙂

Hawaiian words
Hoʻoilo: winter

Beach Walk 706 – New and Old

New and old are such loaded words – they can be used to manipulate our feelings if we are not paying attention. Like most things, I think it is case-specific. New is not always improved nor does the new necessarily invalidate the old.

Hawaiian Word:
Kahiko: old
Hou: new
ʻAno hou: new-fashioned

Beach Walk 700 – Unite and Go Forward

Pupukahi i holomua
Translation: “Unite to move forward.”

We celebrate 700 episodes together with you. A hui hou.

— Hawaiian Proverb gathered by Mary Kawena Pukui
“By working together we make progress. This saying would be especially applicable to the Hawaiians on their canoes where each paddler would have to pull the paddles together on command in order to make the canoe move forward quickly forward.”

Hawaiian Word:
Holomua: movement, progress
Pupikahi: United, as in harmonious co-operation
