Full moon on Maui
More than eight years ago, I visited the beautiful island of Maui for three weeks. My sister lived in Pukalani then. I had composed a piano solo piece after witnessing a glorious sunset on Kula which turned into a full moon. In need of feedback, I sought the opinion of Robert Pollock, composer and pianist. Later I turned "Full Moon on Maui" into a recording on my first CD but never touched it again.
Tonight the moon shown brightly above the village of Paia on the North Beach. I am filled with memories, after watching the movie "Love in the Time of Cholera" last night and "Lust, Caution" a few nights earlier at the Maui Film Festival at the MACC. And now reading the novel "The Notebook" the film which brought me to tears only a year before, leaving me meandering in a love lorn state.
Come to think of it ---- eight years ago, I was lost in a world of day dreams, clinging onto a few moments to fill a lifetime of longing. Between Houston and Tokyo, I felt suspended in mid-air, a kind of paradise I wished to share.
Once upon a time, I wrote fervently, updating my daily journal before the word "blog" was coined. These days I hardly have the time to digest and reflect, let alone craft into anything readable or worth a webpage. Where has all the time gone, I ask myself.
