Premier Issue Coming: Spring Equinox, March 21st

springWe seem to be getting another lesson in patience. As much as we’ve been trying to push the premier issue for a January launch; it just isn’t going to happen. Poor timing we’re guessing. It’s difficult getting anyone’s attention during the holidays and next to impossible to get advertisers to sign on to a new publication during the very slow month of January.

We’ve decided to put it off until the end of March to coincide with the Spring Equinox. That’ll give us time to reflect and further define our mission. It seems that folks are excited to see it happen. It’s just a matter of making it happen at the right time and in the right way.

Thank you for following this blog and our Facebook page. We love to share, and it’s our sincere and greatest hope that we’ll be sharing an entire magazine full of good stuff soon. We’ll be in touch and hope you’ll strive to do the same.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Phil & Peggy

“Every Breaking Wave” by U2

u2 on morroco beach lyrics 2U2 LYRICS

“Every Breaking Wave”

 

Every breaking wave on the shore
Tells the next one “there’ll be one more”
And every gambler knows that to lose
Is what you’re really there for

Summer I was fearless
Now I speak into an answer phone
Like every fallen leaf on the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone, alone

[Chorus:]
If you go…
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so…
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave?

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
Every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
To live without intimacy

I thought I heard the captain’s voice
But it’s hard to listen while you preach
Like every broken wave on the shore
This is as far as I could reach

[Chorus]

The sea knows where are the rocks
And drowning is no sin
You know where my heart is
The same place that yours has been
We know that we fear to win
And so we end before we begin
Before we begin

[Chorus]

Tiger Shark Attacks Paddleboarder In Hawaii

shark-board-2-670Advice from Xena: They are in the breeding grounds on that side of the island where the water in the winter time is the warmest. This is where sharks and whales come to have their babies and they are looking for food. The Kanakas say “no get in da water in winter and no murky water yeah,” you stay out of there… – Xena W.
