For Someone I Love

Kaua’i    North Shore Sight

If you drive to the end of Kuhio Highway 56, you will reach this exotic Ha'ena State Park located on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i often referred to as the 'end of the road'..

Tucked against the Napali cliffs is this Ha'ena State Park. Ha'ena, its name is usually translated as "red hot," when the sun is down on the right side of the Napali cliffs, all seines is turning in deep red perfectly, and where every American people have always envisioned a beach wedding.

The 230 acres (0.93km2) park is situated at the terminus of the North Shore drive and is host to Lumahai beach, Ha'ena beach, Ke'e Beach and a spectacular 1,280ft (390m) cliff named Bali Ha'i.

The cliff and these beaches have also been the locations for several well-known songs in the 1958 film titled "Bali Ha'i" setting in "South Pacific" by Hollywood in 1958.

One mile to the east is Lumahai Beach, which is actually 3 beaches in various degrees of connectedness, depending on the sand build up. Visually stunning, with black lava cliffs, white sand, blue ocean and green jungle. Great for running on soft sand, then swimming in the fresh water of the mouth of Lumahai River, and playing in the waves where river meets ocean.

My latest artwork "For Someone I Love" is located in this exotic area Ha'ena means Red Hot.

I dedicate thanks to the great Creator who is controlling perfectly all these "Event".

I dedicate this artwork to my old friend who had gone in the sickness of the cancer in last year and Brother Michael J. who had gone in June of this year.

Please recall this fact of two people, and meditate on the phantom of the words that Isaiah saw.

Isaiah: Chapter 6 (The King James Version)

:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

:2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

:6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

:11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,

:12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
