Hau`oli Makahiki Hou!
As we take a look back at 2009 and its own particular set of challenges, we are happy to see it fade off like the sunset taken above at Mākaha. But what to make of the year to come?
Sometimes, art, in its many different forms, has a way of capturing our outlook on life. Call it synchronicity if you wish, but that was just the case last week when we came across a particularly moving clip, “Dayvan Cowboy”, from one of our favorite electronic groups, Boards of Canada. Constructed from archive stock footage, the clip, directed by Melissa Olson, amazed us by the journey created through its sublime images: jumping from space through the atmosphere, just to catch the perfect wave. We love the sense of freedom the clip carries, all the while propelled by some deeply meditative beats. We can’t help but feel there are no real limits in life when you look at things in just the right light.
With this sense of boundless possibilities in mind, we wish you a safe, prosperous, and happy 2010 full of abundance and new discoveries.
