So this just happened – while walking towards Ama, our latest find on Kauai for amazing Japanese food, I told Agam that I love coming to Hawai’i because of the sky. It’s a different sky and it always makes me feel I am disconnected because I know that the sky above my head is not the same. We laughed about it, but the thought lingered.
After dinner as we were driving back, I looked outside the window and there it was, the Milky Way, right there in my view. Tara and I rolled our windows down and enjoyed the show and finally Agam also decided to park on the side of the road and join us in our starry splendor.
I have seen this splendor once before, also in Hawai’i almost 8 years ago. It was our first trip to the Big Island. Agam missed the show since he was driving and we were driving through back roads.
So it was best to keep going. Ever since then, I’ve been looking for the Milk Way every time we are here. Just so I can show Agam what I saw. Because when you see something as stark as a galaxy, you just cannot unsee it.
And tonight the three of us enjoyed the splendor together. What a memory. One for the keeps.
Just as soon as we got into the car, it started drizzling and in seconds the star studded sky was gone and the clouds took over the night sky. What are the odds?
Aug 29, 2019 shall go down in the books 🙂
Mahalo, Kauai skies for making my wish come true. You never disappoint.
