Looking back to remember what's important. I found an article I wrote for Hawaii Island Journal in 2000. "Like Raising Fish" was written while Pete and I lived in my old family home in Kuli'ou'ou on the island of O'ahu. I reprinted the article on my old blog Makua o'o as a way to remember the journey is ongoing; becoming an elder is like raising fish. I love the 'little artists' artwork included to enhance the original writing, and the heart of the teacher who relishing the work she does with them.
