Aloha from Maui. Tropical Storm Olivia is taking dead aim on the north end of the Island where we are hunkered-down near Kapalua. Lots of wind and rain but we still have power!

Black sand beach! By far the most unique beach I’ve ever visited! The sand is made up of granulated lava, which actually hurt your feet when walking without shoes.
Welcome to my 1,100th post on instagram. I’ve spent the past month on vacation taking some much needed time away from the chaos of the blood world.
I took a small hop to Maui on a whim, and wanted to drive the road to Hana. Unfortunately, due to the recent hurricanes hitting the Hawaii islands, I was advised to not venture off there by land since it’s prone to mudslides and the like after a storm.
I made a quick video to @jheneaiko’s “LSD” from her album “Trip” using clips I took visiting the island. The album itself is an intimate look at her attempts to cope with the loss of her brother and struggles to fill that part of her life with something—anything. The irony is sometimes we as human beings often misdirect or misinterpret these alternatives to that love, bond, or feeling...which in turn end up causing continued pain and grief.
I’m sure we can all relate to something similar in our lives whether it be a family member, loved one, a friend...or something else entirely that holds special meaning only to us.

Daily habit #1: Look at yourself in a mirror and say “I love you”. Every single day. Self love is an every day practice. Kindness is an every day practice. Put the work in.
#haleakala#hiking#haleakalahiking We are so lucky today, clear blue skies and NO rain despite forecast. We hiked for about an hour at the Halemau'u trail and then head to the summit. The view at the top was spectacular and we felt we were sitting on top of clouds. Pictures don't do justice. Visiting this Mt is a must for those who loves nature and mountains.👍👍👍
I wasn’t sure about waking up at 2am to go all the way up the Haleakalā National Park’s summit (10,000+ feet) to watch the sunrise. It’s the thing everyone tells you to do though. It ended up being a magical experience, seeing the sky’s color change little by little and watching the sun appear above the clouds.
Did you know... 💫 The Nēnē is the world’s rarest goose?
Once common, the Nēnē, or Hawaiian Goose, is believed to have had a population of about 25,000 when Captain James Cook arrived in 1778. Hunting and introduced predators reduced the population to 30 birds in the 1950s. The species breeds well in captivity and has since been successfully reintroduced. Today there are about 2800 of Hawai’i’s endemic state bird throughout the islands.
As the sun rose in Haleakalā Crater I woke to the sounds of rustling around my tent. When I peeked out, the morning light was creeping over the cliffs and nēnē were scattered about, feeding on lush volcanic vegetation. With spring creeping ahead fluffy baby geese were playing in the bushes and eating alongside their mothers in the morning dew.
I’d never seen so many nēnē in one place. It was such a magical way to begin another beautiful day in Hawai’i nei.
