Because I am blessed to live in a place that many travelers consider to be a world destination, I will begin this journey here, on Maui, a place that I have considered my home for quite some time. As I enjoy these amazing Maui sunsets, coconuts, fresh fish, and organic foods; I reflect and appreciate these blessings in my life. These simple and healthy indulgences are held with gratitude in my heart. I pray that I may maintain my health throughout this upcoming journey so I may remain in the East without any severe and uncomforatble interruptions! I am happy to have a wonderful travel buddy that appreciates Maui as do I, and to have this practice to be held in strength and confidence as I dive backwards into a world that is quite different from this paradise I experience in the States.
