"What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? — it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."
- Jack Kerouac

5 hours well spent. A view of the Pacific Ocean going up one side of the mountain and a view of Makua Valley once we got to the other side. Plus, the air up there smelled amazing. So fresh.

"Creating things is exploring what’s around me. Matter collides into shapes and volumes to rearrange itself in the making. Just like the day falls into the night things hold together."

Sadly, it was overcast the day my dad and I decided to go. Still beautiful views no matter what angle you looked. Gonna miss this Island weather that I've been born and raised in. Leaving it indefinitely in 5 days!

"Her intricate cane pieces focus on the beauty of a single solitary unit, which both asserts and subordinates its autonomy in a work. 'My visual concept of beauty has always been fractal,' she says. 'I am intrigued by multitudes of tiny little parts, for example, blades of grass all bending in the wind to the same rhythm. As you pan out you have waves of form. Zoom in and you see each individual blade of grass moving to the flow of the wind. Everything in nature possesses this quality.' "

"I use glass, not for its mimetic quality to capture the look of stone or plastic, but for its most unique properties; the inclination to flow, the capacity to freeze a moment in time, and its ability to manipulate optics."

"Since her childhood in rural Iowa, she [Shannon Astali DeJong] has been collecting discarded objects and crafting them into something new. She would often rescue materials from the waste basket and use them to fashion ornate gifts. Early projects included popsicle stick jewelry boxes and elaborate playhouses for her guinea pig."
