In The Tropics

Like so many other days this year Kila is house bound today. Having one good arm is challenging enough, throw in some torrential flooding rain & I'm thinking my bed is looking even more inviting...

Bit by Bit

Some small celebrations in the world of Kila. Yesterday she went for her first swim in the ocean since the accident. It was refreshing, invigorating & not to mention cooling. Today is going to be a day by the pool. She hasn't the courage to get behind the wheel yet, but it will come.

Soothing To The Soul

For Kila, the ocean and it's surrounds are soothing, like a warmed towel at a spa, like a handmade patchwork quilt in winter, like a lengthy embrace from your sister. So glad to be there yesterday after time away.

Practice makes Perfect

Well this was Kila's adventure yesterday before her personal photographer took a tumble.

On the beautiful beach at Cabarita in some perfect white wash for beginners, she got up three times; briefly but still she claims it.

If you don't like blood look away!

Well the lively Kila was busy sleeping last night whilst I was making a lengthy stopover at the hospital. Yes, that fun, fit and healthy start to my year started out as a ride on a scooter down the hill & finished with a 5 hour visit to hospital.
Broken wrist, with possible operation to wire bone back together, 3 stitches to me chin, black eye and very sore ribs. Kila will be laying low for a few weeks until the fracture heals & she can get mobile again.

Happy New Year

Haul'oli Makahiki Hou (or Happy New Year!) and here's to 2012 being a very fulfilling year.
If you were a follower of my blog last year you may have noticed I lost my way as a blogger. The journey I set out on at the start of 2011 in many ways did not take the path that I was expecting. Some of the challenges that I didn't expect challenged my strength and resolve and in fact still are doing that. Some of the experiences I didn't expect took me amazing places I had never been before my whole life; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.
I realised from these things that on our path of life sometimes we are sent temptations and challenges to test our resolve, so we can discover our strength, so that we can grow from learning and to test how we deal with challenges. That's just life.
For 2012, I am aiming to embrace a renewed belief that we are on whatever path we are meant to be on to learn the lessons we need to learn. Fight as we may to alter the path, it is fruitless. I am also hoping to actively live my life to the fullest; a fun, fit and healthy life. And so begins the adventures of Kila (pronounced Key-lah).
Kila is the Hawaiian version of Jill. In Hawaiian it means **blushing** good looking/beautiful. Kila is set to appear in many photos this year of the places she goes and the things she learns along the way; the thoughts and things that inspire and motivate her.
With hope, inspiration, faith and love hopefully Kila's adventures for the year will unfold before your eyes as she hulas her way through the year that is 2012.
