This “postcard” was inspired by my friend and client, author Marjorie St. Clair, who lost everything including her cats in the Lahaina fire on Maui in 2023. It’s so easy to imagine Hawaii as paradise on earth, but then an event like this happens and you realize that Hawaii has also been subject to war (Pearl Harbor), volcanoes and hurricanes. I didn’t even begin to get the effects of colonization and commercialization on this earthly paradise. See if you can find, the Japanese bombers, burnt out jeep and cars, structure fire, sea turtle, coral reefs, fish, long boat some hidden and some not among the palm trees.
