so salty pieces of coral from surfing Hawaii in the 60's and 70's getting reef pounded living in my body fall through my skin from time to time!

sailing to Oahu

Jimi Hendrix was playing on Oahu. I had never sailed. Surfed Mexico, California, Hawaii! Aw, how hard could it be to sail 90-110 miles from Kauai to Oahu? Piece of cake, right? Remember it was the 60's! This is so bad. We thought we were looking at Kaiena Point,Ohau, knowing we weren't going to make the concert! But at least we were in site of Oahu-wrong! Coy, who had never sailed before, me,who had never sailed before, jeff and Abbott etc. We were looking at the sleeping giant on Kauai! We had done three-sixty's in the night! We sailed on the only tri-marran I've ever sailed on ( except later ) in my life, missed the concert! It was at the Waikiki Shell Ampitheater ( Moon eclipsed . We finally made Nawilwili Harbor! The Skipper tried to give us his boat saying, " It's trying to kill me"! We watched him go stark raving mad not even realising that had we got caught in the channel current we were on our way to Japan! Remember it was the 60's and we were going to see Hendrix. I left out some of the good stuff but I will make up for it later!

Boogers In My EYES

       Maka pia pia doesn't mean much if one doesn't speak Hawaiian.   That is why God created
pidgeons.  What does, " Howzit Bra mean"?  How you stay?  You stay good?  You come stay go?
And your answer, " I stay wenting"!
       Language is like religion!  No matter where you go, there you are.  I come stay go is actually
profound.  It combines time, space, religion, distance, physical place, identity, past, present and future and a relationship !
All this in a very simple expression or explosion out of one's mouth.  This expression is usually accompanied by
a hand gesture where the first and fifth didgital phalange are displayed with an arm shake so that even a deaf mute could receive a '"Howzit Bra"!
      Christians brought their God to Hawaii.  When they topped their wife in the missionary position after leaving  the East Coast and sailing around " The Horn" with a piano aboard, they spread a disease to a people that did not need what they so kindly crammed down people's throats.  Their very own
children ( some, not all ) left the faith.  The missionaries weren't visionaries and wore far to much clothing.
They clothed their mind.  Why do you think their children stold one third of all Hawaii?  Was it just because they were there?  No, it is because the Alii  decided whatever they decided when they decided to decide. Usually after speaking with a Kahuna.   This is all written. People are people, man.  There is no people greater than another people.  Ask an American Indian! Chiefs, medicine men, doctors, lawyers?  What? A particular tribe
of people will tell you to your face that their tribe is ," The People" !
    Aren't you happy that you know this?  You should see my passport.  I get to go to places where they all tell me what I should think.  They are right!  Right now, because some of these people in certain places I have been eat people.  They don't just kill you, they eat long white pig!  Heh!
     I haven't eaten a Christian yet but it is only because I haven't met one!  That's not entirely true.  I have met one but she is my sister and I have her on the back burner! 
    All kidding aside.  I didn't know where this conversation was going because it is driving itself.  Here is what it says though. When you greet a human, mean it.  No cliches or meaningless diatribe.  People want you to look directly into their eyes and that is your way of each saying to each other I see you, I recognize you, I may not agree with you but I am listening and I hope I did not spread an infectious disease to your village that will wipe out one third of your entire population.  I tried that in an elevator in Manhatten NY on the 36th floor of the Hilton on Fifth Ave. back in "81",,,  It didn't work but it could have!
    No- really, no joke!  I really did spread a disease wherever I have visited.  It is called, " Robbiism"!
Symtoms---A strong desire to tell the truth ( even to yourself)  Unexplained laughter( after telling the truth to yourself).  Lose of friends.( amigos).  Money loses importance. ( piquito denaro)( kala in Hawaii)(British Sterling-pound)...vision is restored. ( it's a miricle).  Forgetfulness about yesterday's tomarrows!  ( in the is)!
    Adverse reactions:  Score keeping.  Twelve minus two equals two!  If you are one of the ten then there
is no ink in my pen......That is a ten four and a sheel of steel (written in stone) ( parenthesis enclosed by)
Howzit Bra?
