Moving to Maui #20 -- "Am I Home Yet?"

Posted by Maridel Bowes on Friday, June 18, 2010, In : Moving to Maui 

“Welcome Home!” my housemates said when I flew into Maui four weeks ago. “Welcome home!” the Peaceful Women island-dwellers echoed as they greeted me. But when Brittany, the bank teller, said it to me, it felt completely different.

“So where are you living on island?” she asked in the course of filling out a form.
“In Haiku.”
Where did you live on the Mainland?”

Moving to Maui #16 "A Slice of Maui Life"

Posted by Maridel Bowes on Friday, June 4, 2010, In : Moving to Maui 

It’s been two weeks today since I took up residence in Haiku. So pick up a fork and have a slice of my Maui life, bite by bite. It’s the Back-to-Nature experience I never craved with a kind of Costco, Starbucks, Home Depot twist. (Though that entails a twelve mile ride.) 

Unlocked Doors:People talk about the “good old days” when we didn’t have to lock our doors. I missed that era. Instead I remember standing on the porch in Indiana impatiently stomping to keep the blood flowing i...
