As part of their 193 mile walk around the island of Maui, native Hawaiians and others were seeking spiritual support for the changes they face.
During a break at Palauea beach, I spoke with a few of the marchers, and got an earful about how much has been taken away from them by rich mainlanders. One of them implied rather strongly that I was one of those people who had stolen from them.
I quietly continued my morning walk and even managed to calm down after only a few miles.
People are making the best of our missing beaches. Many of them are combing through the rocks in search of shells. And the rest are enjoying getting to know each other as they pack into what little sand is left.
I'm a guy who likes to get out into the ocean several times each week and interact with the creatures I encounter there. I often swim with dolphins, sharks, rays, and whales. Check out my photos on my website: www.TropicalLight.com
