Anniversary Journalism

Well, anniversary blogging, anyway.
A year ago I was going into my second week of housesitting in Kilauea, Kauai. The island was packed with holiday tourists so I was staying off the roads and away from the beaches and trails, agreeably hunkered down, caretaking four cats on a five-acre landscape farm.
It was definitely one of the best and most interesting times I’d experienced.
This week the waves on the west and north shores are 25 feet and more. Sunburnt mainlanders are being asked not to drown.
I’m going back to the same gig this June. I’m hoping the five months will pass quickly.
