I lay naked in my tent drenched with sweat. I feel something crawling on my back, a spider. I try and swat it but miss, where did it go. Are the red ones poison or the orange ones?
When I arrived in Maui it was to warm wind driven rain. The rain went away and was replaced by hurricane force winds. Now its a dead calm and the bugs are out full force. The mosquito netting is useless.
The sun hasn’t risen yet but I’m wide awake still on mainland time. Today will be a day to explore down island as u will be hitch hiking to find a days work.
Each morning I wake up with a pain in my gut. What the hell am I doing here? The fear creeps in but with the rising mornin sun the ocean reminds me that home.
