Hawaii can be an island of contrasts, from the people to the ‘aina (land), there is a clear diversity. This is one of the main reasons we love it.
One of those contrasts is seen here where a soft, scented, and temporary plumeria sits atop hard, dark, and long-stayed lava rock.
In this case, it acts as a memorial to some of those we’ve lost along the way and their contribution to our lives. We hope you have the chance to remember those individuals who have stood out as something special in your life!
