Yo!

Two more pics

Sorry pics are so large:






My nephew, "Calm Peaceful Sea," who is my little buddy. I say "Huggy Wuggy" to him and he hugs me. He is very sweet. Sometimes he ignores me which I think is typical of men. Sometimes they just ignore you lol Well I notice that his eyes trust me. It's cute. It's also cute how at about two years old he tries to protect me :)




My other middle niece, "Warmth of the Sun." She's wearing her kung fu workout clothes and I've censored the name on her shirt. She is also making a funny face LOL Out of all of my nieces and nephew... I consider her to be "Miss Aloha" as in she acts really Hawaiian as in really kind, loving, and full of aloha and some times she can fight back as true Hawaiians fight back LOL Well like they fought back when Captain Cook visited Kealakekua Bay.


Anyway my sister and her husband live in an affluent neighborhood which is atypical of Hawaiians. Well I'm not saying that all Hawaiians are poor nor am I saying that all Hawaiians are rich. Some Hawaiians work hard for their goals... while some do not. Some are rich. Some are poor. Some are in between. We're just like other humans. Anyway they live next door to a retired surgeon. If that says anything lol




"So, let go,let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So, let go, l-let go
Just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown"

More pics including of myself soon.



Yo!

My cousin and her husband

I have not told many people nor do I tell many people but my grand cousin, Haunani Minn, is married to actor Marc Singer:

Her husband, Marc Singer:










And yes... she IS Hawaiian. Her mother is my Aunty Florence, sister of my paternal grandmother, Rose Lokelani. Aunty Florence is Hawaiian and Chinese. Haunani's father, Uncle Gilbert, is Korean :)

Haunani has a sister named Ulu. All pretty cool actually. They are very wealthy and their father owns many properties in Hawaii. He used to be a surveyor for the state of Hawaii. I should write to her and ask her to comment on Hawaiian sovereignty. I'm curious what she thinks of it.

Also I really like Aunty Florence and have always liked her. She visits my paternal grandmother every day, likes my mom and treats her with respect, and is very family oriented. I just don't remember them focusing on being Hawaiian and am curious why I have not seen nor read Haunani comment on being Hawaiian. She and Keanu Reeves. To me... shouldn't they say SOMETHING about being Hawaiian? Or is it just me lol


Which reminds me... Keanu Reeves in the Matrix epitomizes how Hawaiians are in a Matrix:




That is, living in parallel worlds and often targeted by assassins. I'm the same mix as he is and am Buddhist too which he also seems to be. I just wish he would talk about being Hawaiian.
