The Makani is blowing across Waimea today and madam pele continues to bless us with her fiery energy at Halemaumau. I am in the process of completing my next book by the end of October (fingers crossed). The Saga of Saichi and Sarah, a love story. it will share how the sugar plantations impacted/touched our archipelago. in both good and bad ways. Aloha from Waimea, Kohala, Hema.
