Around 2006, I started to get the urge to visit Hawai’i. It came on sort of slowly, but there were all sorts of things pointing me toward the Islands. I would turn on the TV and there would be a program on about Hawai’i, or about the volcanoes here. Even on this blog, I started to get people contacting me via my contact page and signing their emails, Aloha. Friends started sending me links to things in Hawai’i out of the blue and not knowing why they were sending them. I of course took note of all these “coincidences” and started to take the time to look inside as to what this all meant. Fast forward a couple years, and I knew that I would be moving to Hawaii. I’d never visited, but I just knew. Hawai’i was where I was supposed to be.
In February of 2009, I boarded a plane and headed off to three weeks on the Big Island. By the time I had taken ten or so steps on the tarmac (no jetways here, and the entire airport is open air), I knew this was home. I spent three magical weeks exploring the island, and felt the warm embrace of the spirits here.
In December of 2009, I packed up my kitty, Sidney, and we boarded a plane for our new home on the Big Island of Hawai’i.

About This Site
This site is built on WordPress open source software. As far as possible I have tried to keep it compatible with a wide range of browsers and browser versions. That said, older browsers such as Internet Explorer 5.x and 6 are so old and outdated that there may well be certain features on this site that simply won’t work in those older browsers (which aren’t even supported by MS anymore). If you are using an old version of any browser, I strongly suggest that you update to the newest version possible for your particular operating system. Older browsers typically have security issues, and if you haven’t had a problem yet, there is a good chance you will at some point.
I make every attempt to keep this site as compliant with web standards as I can so that my visitors will not have issues. If you have an issue viewing this site, please let me know via my contact form. Please include your browser and operating system and versions and where you experienced the problem.
Currently I’m using Twenty Thirteen theme by Automattic. It is well designed, has nice typography and great features.
Web Hosting Provider
I have had this site hosted on A Small Orange hosting from the start, and could not be happier with the service and support I have received over the years. They are professional, courteous and responsive to problems and I highly recommend them. Currently I’m using the “Small” shared hosting package which provides a lot of bang for the buck in my opinion. If you are looking for hosting, check out A Small Orange.
