Forever running….

Drifting off to sleep, with the glow of the red-hot lava bouncing off the clouds of steam and gas… it was a fitful night…

I woke with a start, my heart racing… feeling out of breath as if I had been running, then the flash of the nightmare showed it’s ugly face….an it was gone…

Standing at the kitchen window, viewing the bright red glow of the lava, hearing explosions off in the distance, a faint waft of noxious odor… I turn to go back to bed…

My brain wants to pursue the dream, so I drift back off to see what waits behind door number 2….

I’m running again… I am little, less than 50 pounds and I am being beat upon… there is no escape and I wake again, this time with a scream upon my lips…

Once again I shuffle to the kitchen for a drink of water and I see the reflection of the red glow of the lava bouncing off the window… Once again I hear explosions and get a waft of foul odor…

Ironic, my environment is mimicking my nightmares… 

No one knows how long the eruption will continue… it is impacting only 4% of Hawaii and the rest of the islands are inviting you to come enjoy some Aloha…

The depression has slithered off for now and it’s just listening to the island birds and the sound of life going on around me… houses being built… surfers and fishermen alike going down the road to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii… Mild weather and great people, what more could you ask for…

Some sleep would be nice… but we are on Pele’s schedule… she will let us rest when she is done…

I Remember….

My earliest memory is before the age of 2... by the time I was 13, I had no childhood memories... No holidays, no birthdays... On 11/5/17 a shooter in Texas changed all that... It triggered my memories from my 13th year... The Air Force covered it up an it happened in Big Springs, Texas 1967... Domestic violence, PTSD, TBI and I too served in the Air Force 10 years later... This is my story to remember what was stolen...
