Photo Friday: Place of Refuge, Hawaii

A tiki builder at Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, a sacred place of refuge for Hawaiians.

Happy Friday,

    Were there other Hawaiian artists at the sacred place of refuge? Was he making a Tiki? Did you talk with him? What prompted y'all to go? MOM

    The tiki builder was the only artist we saw at the park. We had visited there before 5 years ago and decided to go back on our way to Volcano one day. We mainly listened as other tourists talked to him. When asked how long tikis take to make, he said something like “until they're done,” and that when he'd asked his father the same question many years ago, his father had said, “What, you have somewhere to be?”

    That and how important it is to be comfortable in your own skin. Self-confidence rocks!
