You did what? You told the sherrif you were fishing so it’s ok to stay on the beach.  You know what you just did you showed him your Washongron ID and Washington Walmart fishing pole and claimed grandfathered Hawaiin fishing rights  Stupid fucking Haole

  

My new friend smiled as he read me the riot act and went on to teach me about the islands how and where to survive and how to be safe.  Truly one of the best days so far but it didn’t start off so well. 
I’ll skip the foolish drama but riding home a local swerved at me blaring his horn. I flipped him off and he skidded to a hault an jumped out. I parked my bike wearing nothing but my board shorts  I walked towards him jacked like a rooster.  The words flared out of my mouth, you beef brah. We shared some choice words he turned and went back into the car peeling out as he left. I should interject that I hate fighting or violence of any kind  I never should have engaged in the first place .  He had every right to express his feelings.  I’m rapidly learning that no matter how long I live here Hawaii will never be my home, I will always be an outsider on so many levels.  I send my apologies.

  It took me a few minutes to calm down and see the error of my ways and then I was glad he left.  Islanders stick togehter,  they have to because stupid fucking haoles come over here and fuck everything’s up. I know for a fact if we threw down that locals would come to his aid but who would have my back?  I can see hundreds of tourist driving by with thier windows up and doors locked.  Look away honey if we don’t see it it’s not really happening. 
I made my way back to camp feeling like a dick so I found a coconut and threw it into the ocean asking forgiveness.  I knew the nut would make new life and soon enough Maui did forgive me by making me a new friend. 

Imagine if Hawaiins we’re teeing off golf balls from ground zero or turned Arlington into a hotel or Gettysburg into a parking lot. That’s what has happened to Hawaii. Islanders don’t hate us, they are afraid of what fucked  up shit we will do next. The sugar cane and pineapple are going away Hawaii is hurting. 

So Maui broke me, she took away everything from  me including my dignity to show me what has happened to the island residents.  I’m learning a painful truth and starting to understand the way… I’m  still here and now that she knows my intentions are true she is teaching me to see through  Hawaiin eyes.  I fully understand that I am still a stupid fucking Haole  but one day and lesson at a time I am learning the way of the islands.  Today I looked into a mirror for the first time since arriving on island   A stranger starred   back at me,  I have a feeling we are to become good friends Mahalo Maui.
