|Approaching Niihau, Jan 25, 2014 and ready to snorkel!|
|Layers of color contrasting dark and light,|
Niihau seduces with its stark beauty and forbidden status.
How the sea colors change from place to place,
reflecting the land forms and sky-scapes surrounding it.
How a couple, married nearly 34 years,
match those changing landscapes with their own ever-evolving palette. How it is enough to keep us looking ahead, engaged in the messy business of living.
There are ordinary things that unfold every day. I call them miracles.
