What’s the biggest thing I took away from my time in the Hawaiian rainforest of Volcano? It’s the question I’ve been asked the most, in one form or another, since I returned. Many who follow me on Facebook got a taste of the experience as I tried to take you along with me as much as possible. I’m not sure there are enough words to truly convey what the trip was like but let’s look at the definitions of alchemy and evolution first.
al·che·my: a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.
ev·o·lu·tion: the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
The most important thing I’m taking away is the resolution that I am going back next year. The island, a volcanic rainforest which seeps into you with its chill, dampness, with its incredible food, culture, and people.
