Looking for a hibiscus bloom to photograph for today's @dailyshoot assignment - wanted to link to the Hawaiian slack-key guitar music of John Keawe. Unfortunately, the plants were all touched by the cold, so this was the alternative (and in the meantime, I went with Old Friends)! Kahuna has taken a variety of meanings since its origin - but it is generally associated with Hawaii.

Spending time on the Big Island last year was a valuable experience...not only for the usual R&R, but learning about the culture, the history, the environment, and the music (though I ended up not getting that ukulele!). Immersed in a different 'world' always provides the chance to learn at a meaningful level - much different than a traditional textbook! 3rd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
