A new term in our vocabulary is MaiTai Sunset. It’s kind of like eskimos having twentysome different words for snow; in Hawaii we have different definitions of sunsets. We had a MaiTai sunset the other day. Peter was making dinner and I was hanging shower curtains when we both simultaneously saw the sunset. Our reaction was “Quick – make a Mai Tai!”. Peter’s reaction would usually be “quick grab my camera” but this sunset was different. It was the colors of a mai tai filling the sky with yellows, oranges and pinks. It was the glittery glimmer that looked like someone painted a line across the tops of the clouds with a light pen. The sun dropped and colors of the sky intensified. It was a magic moment.
Peter says I’ll be more chatty in my blog. I don’t think so… that’s why I named it The Maui Minute. If I don’t keep it short, I won’t keep it up! I’m a strong believer that the things that make us truly happy in life are the magic moments however small and insignificant. This is to capture those moments and occasionally attack the crazy things in life that make us unable to see magic moments.
