We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming ....

...to bring you a special announcement. My flight back to Alaska leaves Maui at 3 this afternoon. I'll overnight in Anchorage, then drive home the next morning.

I have several more Hawai'an stories to tell you, three of which involve Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes. They contain lots and lots of photos of the inside of Haleakala crater. However, I have taken great liberties with Madame Pele in those stories, ascribing to her words and actions my muse made up, a completely fictionalized story.

I will post them this week, AFTER I am off the island and safely home. Just in case, you understand. One should not take liberties, even editorial liberties, with Madame Pele. You think I don't live out there on the edge? Just wait.

In the meantime, here's a completely safe story about geese.


  1. Your story must have "ducked" out for a spell!

    Duck, duck, GOOSE! You're it, catch me if you can.

  2. When you get home, you don't have to tell a story right away (although that would be nice) -- just post "I'm back, safe and sound" note. :)
