After a week of cold, gray weather, today around lunchtime the sun came out and it warmed up so much that for about an hour it actually felt like t-shirt weather again. Bliss.
One of the songs on the Christmas mix I’ve been listening to in my car is “Mele Kalikimaka,” the Hawaiian Christmas song. Recently a couple lines in particular caught my attention and made me laugh:
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway!
I snapped this photo this afternoon while taking a quick break from packing – tomorrow I fly west to visit family. For now, anyway, merry Christmas from an island where palm trees sway.
