I can’t tell you the numerous things that I have learned since arriving on the Big Island of Hawaii. There are too many to count since my attachment to this island grows daily, sometimes hourly. Granted, I live on an island that most would deem paradise.

Being a woman of 5’8 and weighing anywhere between 128-135 pounds on any given day, I have had preconceived ideas: Men are stronger, faster, and if I ever had to fight one, I would lose…miserably. I mean I grew up with two brothers that rocked everything. The End.
