“The loveliest fleet of islands that lies anchored in any ocean.”

Mark Twain

” ‘UKULI’I KA PUA, ONAONA I KA MAU’U ~  Tiny is the flower, yet it scents the grasses around it.”

Hawaiian Proverb

“Hawaii is magic.  It sounds cheesy to say, but there’s music in the air.”

Bruno Mars


In Hawaii, when friends get together to visit & share time together, they “talk story”. To “talk story” is to chat, to share thoughts & news, to shoot the breeze.

I’m looking forward to “talking story” with you.

Sometimes, it may be about our favorite things about Maui.  Sometimes it may be just random musings. And I hope that sometimes it will be a conversation, as you share your own thoughts about – and adventures on – this beautiful island of Maui.

So kick off your slippahs, take a seat on the beach, and let’s talk story.
