I spent most of the morning yesterday hard at work weeding ... this photo, taken surreptitiously by my wife, should not be taken as evidence to the contrary. The mountain in the background is 10,000-foot Haleakala, Maui's dormant volcano. .
I'm a long-time resident of Hawaii, moving here in 1962. After working in local government, I was the owner of a Honolulu-based advertising agency for 20 years, specializing in creating media and strategy for numerous political campaigns. I'm now retired, but do some freelance writing, much of which is about train travel.
