808 soultime

It is in silence that the soul speaks.

-Vera Stanley Alder

During the summer of 2012 a spirit called me to the 808 State. I was going through some tough times and I decided to go on an adeventure, get out of the bubble I had made myself and go do some serious soul searching in the middle of the Pacific. I felt it was time to reboot my hard drive and build some new memories, new ones to replace the old ones that had ran their course. The trip lasted much longer than anticipated, one month turned into three, Maui has a way of doing that. I was given a real crash course on island life and discovered that when one is travelling alone there is plenty of silence for the soul to speak.

This so happens to be my 808 th post, so here are a few gems from my island adventure, these aren’t your typical tourist shots of beautiful waterfalls or turquoise waves lapping ever so gently on a white sand beach, no my friends these are real shots of my full immersion into island life, behind the scenes, and in between. Where it all started, Mahaloness that is.

the studio(s) outdoor styles, scorpions, centipedes and all.

the gallery, ohana styles, featuring a Mahaloness protective wall mural, welcomes the good ones and dispels the negative ones. The rest of the art was made on found objects and building scraps my friend Jim gave me. The work came out so raw and I really channeled the island vibrations.

when you work outside in the elements you have to expect guests, this little guy was one of my favorites, there were many…
