Girrrrrrrrl.....I was triggered breathless on sailboat, flashback Cattle Creek 1981. Last month the Hawaiin DLNR police came for us with Harbor Master in their green suits and guns, they were coming aboard to inspect. I was terrified, panicky and disobeyed orders (to not say anything by shouting) "I am quarantining on this boat!".... they pushed off with their combat boots, scared too, they thanked us for the cooperation and left.

After a long time he drags himself to the sandy edge and glides his big body into the cool water.


eyes flutter open....Ahhh one pain free breath before the dull throbbing begins.

Slow by slow... Victorious! Now to stand up straight making certain the balance is centered so that the walk to the bathroom is safe. The night light shows the way. Holding on to the newly installed wooden bars makes possible a safe passage to the seat of the throne. Looking out the window from my perch a faint glow catches my attention. It grows brighter as it rises into a magnifice…
