From time to time

Three more weeks of Hawaii.

This place probably isn't what most people picture when you say you've run off to a tropical paradise for six months... far more in common with New Mexico or Northern Ontario, far less the idyllic hut on the beach with swaying palm trees. Still I'm not sure how I would've weathered everything that's gone down without it. I don't know why I need so much solitude, so much raw rocky space. I'll never know why there is a shard of desert lodged irretrievably in my heart, why I don't feel like I can thrive in the environment (a big city) into which I was born. The reason for being here, of course, and not in the desert, is the Ocean. The ever changing waves, from gentle pond to deadly beach, it's been such a gift to be able to lose some of my cares in them from time to time.

Besides your friends you don't need much when you have the water and the land (but maybe that's just me...)
Oh and sushi. I can't forget sushi :)
Miss you loads

missing you too
I'm actually really looking forward to being back in range again. We're pretty determined to stay out of the city for the most part... trying to keep it simple, and yeah, the land sustains me in a way a shit ton of conveniences just don't.

I would say the food thing I miss most is INDIAN.

Melissa (our land-mate) and her (I'm not sure what to call him it's complicated) Graham, shared this delicious feast of papadam and tandoori chicken and Kabocha squash curry that was all out of this world - I was in heaven cause I haven't had any of that since we left. Indian is the one kind of food that I actually feel a bit intimidated trying to cook - mostly because of unfamiliar processes and complex combinations of hard to come by ingredients... I got her recipe for the curry tho!

Re: missing you too
You're brave! I refuse to entertain the notion of cooking my own indian food. That's just crazy talk....

I actually really miss Vietnamese food a lot. There's a somewhat decent asian fusion restaurant in Sudbury but the vermicelli dishes are bad. I need to give up the dream of them ever being good and settle for what is ok there.

Dammit, now I'm hungry. Thanks ;)
