I can hardly believe that I am THIS close to leaving from San Francisco! Everything seems to be in fast forward mode and is so surreal, yet I am interestingly calm. I feel settled and resolute. Yes, I am nervous, and there are still a few question marks, but all in all, I am ready. There are still many furious boat projects going on, and I imagine they will continue until the day I shove off. I keep seeing Hanalei Bay in my minds eye though, and that vision keeps me chugging forward, trusting that all I need to do and know will become clear and available at the perfect time. This keeps proving to be true, so I have no choice but to trust it! An example of this was the issue of getting my boat home from Hawaii. I have been scrambling to figure out a plan (and truthfully was starting to get a tad stressed), and through the support of so many people, a solution gracefully materialized yesterday, and within about 2 hours everything was solved. My boat is being shipped back from Kauai directly to LA! Done and done! We leave in about 2 weeks to head up the coast, and I imagine at that point reality will really hit me. Until then, I am keeping my head down and living and breathing all things Haunani.
My gratitude for all of those that support me in this adventure is so deep. There are so many people both known and unknown that continuously offer ideas, solutions, support, cheerleading and beyond. Thomas certainly remains at the top of this list. He continues to go above and beyond in every way, and has truly been my rock through all of this. I don’t know that I will ever be able to adequately express the peace and strength that his support has given me. I also want to shout out to my friends and family who have had to deal with my single-mindedness over the past 9 months. Thank you all for dealing with my scatterbrain with grace and compassion (and for issuing a million hall passes for my oversights and distraction). I love you all!
