Getting ready to leave again, for New York City, then Europe. Interesting what you chose to photograph, and what you don't--same in poetry, story, and the way we walk through our lives. We might observe one line, one particular quality of spectrum, and leave out the rest. For instance, the morning after I returned from Colgate University (and I HAVE photos) and a band performance with my new band JOY HARJO AND THE ARROW DYNAMICS BAND (I need photos if anyone has any) at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, I was up at 4AM. Went down to Kaimana Beach just before sunrise, under a stormy sky. Here's the photo I took. I looked around, and there was a police car that had pulled up on the grass behind us. A beloved one unwound on depression and painkillers walked by. She left her mate for the night who was being apprehended by the HPD between two palms on the beach, in front of a hotel.
And, aloha Honolulu.
