I’ve so neglected my blog, but like some others I know, the drive just isn’t there right now (well OK, it hasn’t been there for me really for over a year). I keep telling myself I’m going to start posting at least once a month, but then another month goes by (never was good with New Years resolutions either).
There have been a lot of shifts and such going on, not only in the larger global picture, but also on a personal level. I really do think that winter solstice 2010 was actually winter solstice 2012 (Mayan calendar). This was a substantial winter solstice from so many perspectives.
Things are going well here in Hawaii. Kilauea and Pele had a romp this last week or so and the Pu`u O`o crater floor collapsed. If that weren’t enough, the lava level in the vent at the Halema`uma`u crater within the Kilauea Caldera dropped nearly out of sight (from around 230 feet below the crater floor to over 660 feet), and a rift opened up between a couple craters and Pele put on a grand show with some lava fountains along the rift reaching nearly 100 meters in height. Some of the cracks in the rift zone appear to by over 50 feet wide from the images. Not sure if it is mostly over or not. Things were kind of quiet down there this morning. You can take a look at some great images and videos of the goings on if you wish.
This image was snapped from my back door the other night, and yes, the sky was purple. No photoshopping at all. You can click to see a larger version of it.
Hopefully it won’t be months before I post again.
