Publication Excerpt

"Maui is a refuge and a reward, a red-carpet-ready celebrity, and a shy tendril of fern uncurling in the sun. Its landscape runs the gamut from thunderous walls of water bearing down on the North Shore to fragrant, rain-forested valleys that reveal themselves soft-bellied, with tousled hair, like a lover in the morning. A tangle of contradictions, Maui wears a Gucci heel one on foot and a puka-shell anklet on the other. It’s the Hawaiian humpback whale’s curious serenade and the machine-gun fire of raindrops on a tin roof. It’s a warrior with a long memory, a glistening treasure washed up from the sea, a whiff of plumeria as you step off the plane." --From "The 2009 Shaka List",  Maui No Ka 'Oi Magazine.
