Aloha

Mixed media collage: "Super Girl Goes to Hawaii," 9" x 12"


I'm off to Hawaii for about a week with my family and created this piece above to send me on my way. I may be able to blog from where I am staying, so stay tuned for tales of adventure, wisdom, and healing from the Pacific Islands!

And here's a little bit about aloha:

"Summing up, one islander says
aloha means 'Hello, goodbye, love, compassion, welcome, good wishes. It means belonging to others with a common humanity. It's defined better as a feeling in the heart than by words.'" (Answers.com)

I send you all some aloha spirit. I feel so thankful that you are part of my little community.

Peace and Mahalo,

Courtney

Love this picture. I have felt that vacation renewal time with a "mask" on allowing me to be someone new which often means more "me!" Even though I have never been to Hawaii, Aloha
