Hawaii is an indelible part of me. More so even than my blood, my skin, or any of my physical possessions, for these are all far more transient and ultimately convey far less about who I really am. But the profound depth and timelessness of my affection toward these sublime, preternaturally beautiful islands, speaks volumes about the nature of my soul, and my relationship with nature herself.

I have visited all the Hawaiian islands (except for Niihau and Lanai) many, many times. The first time, in 1982, as a beginning physics graduate student. And most recently, in 2006, to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary. It is from this latter trip that most of the images contained herein are selected.

This book contains 36 duotoned images and five color photos, with commentary and reflections on the serenity of the Hawaiian Spirit interspersed throughout. A "postscript" includes color snapshots of an "older Hawaii," as seen by my eyes/lens between the years 1982-1988.
