I found a garden today named after one of our Beloved Hawaiian Queens - Queen Kapi'olani. It displays a variety of local plants some endemic to these Islands. It is a small park located near Waikiki and across from Honolulu Zoo on the crossroads of a busy intersection. But inspite of all the sounds, while walking through this park one is oblivious to the rushing life that surrounds it. It was a very reflective and meditative visit.Thank you to people here on 500px who not only inspire me but who also encouraged me that in spite of my recent loss, my brother who bought me the camera would not want me to just sit at home in sadness but to get out and photograph in gladness of his memory. Thank you my dear kind friends. You know who you are.
