Kinilau Silversword... from an original photograph by © Wolf Peter Weber
Most artists will experience a magic moment of sorts during their endeavors. Where it all comes
together: time, place, subject and light... Why the little Kinilau on the very top of this isolated
Silversword somewhere in the vast crater of Haleakala had chosen me to record his coming
out, will remain a mystery. A Hawaiian advanced that PELE (see a vision...) might have had
a hand in it; "She like you." Tromp-l'oeil or mocker, the apparition was posing on the almost
man sized plant as if it was its ornament. "Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo."
