Each time I leave Hawaii for the mainland, it gets harder for me. I am feeling the call to move to Hawaii. Yesterday, I spent all morning, afternoon and night taking multiple flights to bring me from Hilo, Hawaii, to San Jose, CA. I am drained of energy.

They are really loud, and inhabit the island by the millions. I've never before seen one, but I've heard them every night … Continue reading Vegan Cheese?
I'm not sure which animal totem I'm most drawn to. I feel like there are merits and special qualities that typify each one. I relate to different spirit animals at different times in my life. Right now, I'm focused on the gecko, because of the Progressive car insurance ads. Just kidding. I am doing sketches … Continue reading Adam’s Apple
