I can remember how excited I was to see that little red bird in my daughter's backyard.  It took a long time to get a snapshot of him and I thought he was the most exotic thing I had ever seen.  Then a white bird flew by with a long one feather tail and I was hooked.  The birds here are unique and amazing.  Even a chicken seems exotic on this island.

      I am used to the red birds now.  I take lots of things for granted as I go about my Hawaiian days.  I have been known to mutter.."I hate Hawaii." but I know that is just me and the toll it takes on me to get settled.  I'm old and have seen so much of the world that I am a little jaded.  Still this island spins me around and shows me that there are always wonders to record no matter where you are.  The birds here are worth noting.  Life is worth living.  I will adapt just like the birds have and my uniqueness will evolve into a Hawaiian Suzanne that will be totally transformed.   It is not an easy process but I can feel it happening.

Amazing. More life that I can't believe is really real. Tropics.

But I'm just barely over thinking cardinals are exotic.
Until I came back from Maryland I had no idea we even had them here.

Extraordinary creatures.  Reminds me of the lovely last sentence of Darwin's "Origin of Species": from so simple a beginning, endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."

Your last paragraph is a nifty piece of philosophy.

Hawaii is a riot of color, from flowers to birds. Amazing. It must really shock the synapses to see so much live color everywhere.

What's the little guy standing on the black rock. He's adorable! I'm caught up on your posts now, I so envy you your strength of spirit.

Oh my that little red bird!

I am so glad that you can already see yourself as "Hawaiian Suzanne". Assimilation is underway. Wonderful.
