windswept atop Na Pali. overlooking the Pacific Ocean from a few thousand vertical feet is humbling, makes you feel small in a variety of ways. sitting up on the ridge I thought about and guessed at what the next land mass might be, Hokkaido, Kamchatka maybe, something very far regardless. Hawaii is unique in many ways, but the isolation is truly incredible. I spent more time in the ocean this past week than in a long time, just swimming, feeling the power of the waves. water has an ability to really connect you to your surroundings, should spend more time suspended, at the whim of the current.
