We Went To a Place!
Ohana Creations shop, a place I will return to for leis, or just to hear the sweet, familiar Aloha when we step in. We saw new construction, and old places getting fixed up, places that looked intriguing, inviting, inspiring. Then we came upon an area where we felt drawn, where we were so intrigued and inspired, we began to speculate. I think Geoff and I enjoy speculating... it's a figurative venture, where we can test theories and possibilities. Here's a place called "State Street Makers," where small shops and studios are clustered together, and the spaces, collectively, feel full of possibility, and the chance of creative camaraderie! Clearly, we miss Maker Faires, and similar gatherings. And I think, too, we are just on the brink of making something more of all our creative, artsy, maker, robotic, outreach and play impulses. We get ideas, lots of ideas, and then a place like this reveals itself and we feel lit up, pulled in. We ask, What do we want to be when we grow up? Seems like we went to a place, literally, then figuratively. At the very least it was a healthy walk, and pretty outing, but I like the new ideas, and speculating, so that in my mind, I feel like I am still visiting some place new.
