Mythical Encounter
The soothing sound of the bubbling brook calms my nerves, by now my shoes are long gone, sitting and sunning on a rock whilst I venture into the forest. The moss is like a soft, fluffy blanket beneath my feet. The sunlight dapples through the leaves overhead and casts a sea of rays into the gentle rush of the creek. Nature seems unruffled by my troubled heart, it’s gentle breeze seemingly blowing away my pain like leaves in fall. With each step my footprints seem lighter in the moss, as though I were becoming lighter the deeper I delved into this mysterious place.
I have soon found my favorite spot, nimbly hopping up onto the log and walking to the it’s center over the stream. I gather my dress as I sit, and let my feet dip into the cool, refreshing water. The bubbles tickle my feet as they rush by.
Finally, I am able to take that desired breath of clean, fresh air. I lean over to look at the shadowed and blurred reflection of the teary-eyed maiden in the water and remember w

Hawaii. It lives up to it's reputation.

From my dorm this last semester I could look out and see Maunu Kea, walk down the "hallway" and see the ocean. I could walk not only to a beach, but to a park on the ocean where you can't snorkel without colliding with a sea turtle... literally. The Humpback whales raise their babies around the island until late February/May. Not to mention everything looks like a jungle.... and BANYAN Trees OMG!!! It's like an artist's dream!!!! The tree itself is almost made of vines! It sends runners down from it's branches and they make new trunks so the tree just expands til it is literally dwarfing the surrounding buildings. SO getting two of them someday and lacing those runners together to make the ULTIMATE treehouse.

Art update, well it's my major so I'm getting plenty of it. Drawing class, Painting class, finally got introduced to oils... I feel like a chemist. Except these toxins can build up in my blood and kill me someday from extended exposure... yippee... -_-  Still prefer acrylic but I see the value in the pigmentation of oil. Also go with the professional artists around the island to paint on site, THOSE days are Super fun! And that group also does a figure drawing class once a week.

Fall I'm looking to work on the Performing Arts part a little more with dance and choir. I've also taken up Jiujitsu, which is super fun, LOVE my dojo, and with a mischevious Sensai it makes it thoroughly entertaining. Oh and Horses. Can't forget that love that won't die. One of the artist lives near town and owns a horse, needs someone to ride her. *Sarchastic sigh* Oh darn, riding a horse for pleasure and muscle maintenance, up on a hill that overlooks the Hilo and the ocean. Twist my arm.

As soon as I get good enough scans or photos I'll have my student work up.
