CHAPTER 6 ~ RELISHING AN AUSPICIOUS BIRTHDAY
On Turning 60
One part of this Heliconia palm nearly took out a section of the house. Luckily my handymen were able to chop it down before that happened.
Almost every time the guys come over, they collect the coconut palm fronds that have dropped into the yard since their last visit. These fronds are sometimes 25-30 feet long and weigh enough to do serious damage to anything underneath them.
I'm so grateful to them, and to their truck! They must have made three trips to the Trash Transfer Station that day.

This is the entrance to NHERC, our own little extension here in Honoka'a. If I don't teach classes here, maybe I could take some just for fun.
That's one of the town murals on the side of the building. It shows men stacking sugar sacks at the harbor. I still remember the TV jingle: "C&H, C&H, pure cane sugar from Hawai'i."
I'm starting my editing business. So far I have one client who swaps me editing for acupuncture. She says I have too much yin and my liver is too hot (something like that).So she puts the acupuncture needles in my liver, gallbladder, and kidney points. They don't hurt at all,and I come away feeling refreshed.
I'm getting my yard ready for my birthday party, and my mind ready to face what's next in my life.
I've debated teaching college. That is what I originally wanted to do with my Ph.D. And we have a place right here in Honoka`a where I could do that - NHERC: North Hawai`i Education and Research Center.
