Feb 21, 2018

** UPDATED ** Well, if you listened to the episode last night, you heard a bad edit version! They say you should always check your audio file ... and I did this AM only to find the first minute or so deleted! This is the fixed one.

In this episode I discuss the reasons that led me to make the decision to move back to the mainland. It wasn't an easy one but was inevitable.

If you have been a regular listener, you know this decision weighed heavy on my heart. Yet, when it came to go, I was at peace with my final days on island and had an optimistic outlook for what the future holds.

This episode is recorded for the many people who have said HOW COULD YOU LEAVE THAT PLACE?! WHY are you leaving paradise?! Are you crazy?

Well, here ya go. I collated the many responses I have given over the past three and a half years to visitors, family, and friends when the topic of living in Hawaii (Kauai) has come up. And it came up a lot.

The podcast will continue ... I have a number of ideas for future episodes and plan to use my many resources and contacts to bring you valuable shows! Kauai connects us. Stay tuned.

I've landed in Phoenix, AZ. For now.

Granddaughters await my visits.
