Overview

Three stories, Jeremy, John, and Sammy, are from interactions with these people. Hawaii has such diversity but I only concentrated on those which shows the uniqueness and wonder of the aloha spirit. (There are actually other stories but I could not find them.) These 3 short stories will give you a glimpse of what the aloha spirit means and hopefully what it feels like.

About the Author

aloha, I was born in Providence, Rhode Island but began a life of many moves soon thereafter (3 high schools, 2 junior high schools...even 2 kindergardens). I kept moving in a westerly direction until I reached Hawaii. If I moved any further west it'd be east so I returned to California (& gave up a Hemenway scholarship from UH). Spent too much time in competitive athletic endeavors (I was told I was the only history major at La Crosse State U. I was there to play baseball at a very good phy-ed school). Yes, history was my major but you can do only 2 things with a history degree: teach or write. I wasn't ready to do either so I ended up as a pysch nurse (after doing this and that). My motto: Life is serious but...you cannot take it seriously. I've always been interested in people and the human condition and I have the gift of wonder (ex. if wisdom is important why does our culture - and others - ignore it and not esteem it? Our educational system doesn't even teach it in philosophy classes ['No more Kant and the color red already!]). Hence (or is it ergo?), I've matured enough to devote myself to the scribbling craft. Mahalo, Peter
