It's been weeks, at least, since I've sat down at the computer (long story). I had good intentions of catching you up on what we are up to, but we are all sick here and I've just spent over an hour combing out the dreads in Kate's hair (which had not been combed in about 4 days). I'm ready for bed. Yawn.
I've been meaning to give you the heads up on an awesome Kickstarter project by our good friend Nathaniel Hansen that is ending SOON! Nathaniel has been very instrumental in getting my own kickstarter project off the ground and he'll be very involved in the upcoming episodes. He's a pretty amazing guy all around. Below is a brief description of the project and how you can donate to support this great film.
The small town of La’ie, on Oahu’s north shore, covers just 2.1 square miles. This rural community is home to the most visited tourist attraction in Hawaii, a top rated university, a spiritual center for a world-wide church, and numerous minority cultures. But as these diverse groups struggle to have their stories and interests represented, the aging descendants of those Hawaiian’s who first inhabited La’ie’s shores, are fading. In a documentary portrait of this unique place, these elders, or Kūpuna, relate the experiences of their lives and their memories of Oahu's "city of refuge" as their ancestors have done for millennia.
Be back soon (I sort of, like, really miss you guys. xo)
