My Friend Jo, just got back from Hawaii and she brought me back these beads. Funny how just a little token can sometimes mean so much. She gave them to me as soon as I got to work and I wore them all day long. Everytime I looked at them or touched the perfect little shells, it reminded me of the look on her face and the excitemet in her voice as she told me all about her adventure.
I've never really had a big desire to go to Hawaii, there is so much Caribbean close by that I have not yet explored. But... listening to her describe her adventure and looking at the breath taking photos, I have to admit that I kind of wish I would have been there, There was a photo of a helicopter dropping thousands and thousands of orchids on the beach, luau's with island delights, hula hoops and hula dancers and all those gorgeous orchid leis.
Tomorrow, I'll hang the beads on my rear view mirror, but for tonight, I just want to touch them again and think about Jo's adventure, who knows, maybe someday I just might go to dance in the rain in Hawaii.
