"Oh. Hi Sabbath."
"You and I need to talk."
"I feel like I don't even know you anymore. No, no - it's not you, really, it's me. I've been running around all over town and completely ignoring you. Resting? Humph. Hardly. Burning at both ends more like it. Yeah, I know - I've missed you too."
"The family? Oh yeah, they're great. You should see how big the kids are. My oldest is looking such the pre-teen, mmmhmm, 11. Almost 12. And the baby, well, I know, right? Where did 6 years go?"
"Work? It's good. It's the best, hardest thing that I've ever done. Comes with it's challenges and trials... yeah, I know, I really should tell you about it more often. Most days I'm looking your way to wrap stuff up, not to just exhale it all out. I gotta talk to you more..."
"I need this day so badly. Today I rand where I could feel sand, see water and sky that just might have touched my Hanalei home once. And breathe, breathe, breathe".
