My friend Beverly has returned to Honolulu and I am waiting for the sunrise, thinking about all the good things I have and planning my work day. I am amazed how green everything is in the cove and the birds are singing in full chorus, as if they, too, can't wait for the sun to crest the ridge.

The clarity from here to Asheville is amazing. The beauty here truly is miraculous.

It is a new day, full of possibilities.

"Friends are not only together 
when they are side-by-side, 
even one who is far away... 
is still in our thoughts."

"I ran and ran and ran every day, 
and I acquired this sense of determination, 
this sense of spirit 
that I would never, never give up, 
no matter what else happened."
