Still looking around

Haven't been to Ka'ena Point, but I am told that it is where you will find huge waves in the winter and great swimming and snorkeling in the summer. According to Hawaiian legend. Ka’ena point is the spot where Kanaka Maoli (the Hawaiian people) believe that the spirit of the dead person jumps of into the next world. Anyway it is way out and long forgotten by downtown Honolulu.

"Act as if what you do makes a difference - because it does."

Can you imagine a road around Ka'ena Point to Mokuleia, a distance of about three miles. No, Makaha has to deal with Honolulu and Mokuleia has to deal with Honolulu and never the twain shall meet. It's in the rules. How about "Keep the country, country?" Another good one to keep the people down. You gotta pay your dues to Honolulu first.

Going down the rest of the Coast there is quite a bit of Island dancing. Hawaiian, Samoan and Tongan. Very little Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese or Filipino. Some line dancing but hidden and apparently Ballroom Dancing is not even mentioned in polite society. And they have at present, at the Waianae District Park, the best dance floor in the West. Just beautiful, but there is no record of it ever being used for dancing.

The time will come, as we find that we need Honolulu, less and less in spite of the Present Rail Party. We shall live, work and play in our own kuleana and what a Paradise that could be. Meanwhile an introduction to dancing in the Central Valley. Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club.

It is closer than downtown Honolulu and a lot easier on traffic. Nice friendly people over there, more socially inclined than monetarily. The West is getting closer together now that the Rail Catastrophe looms. People along the corridor are in terrible troubles. In San Francisco, the Rail Fiasco was built and when they saw the results, it was torn down again. We shall see it come to pass here too. The money is so important to so many.
