Kauai, you are inside of me

Dirt don’t hurt. I think I’m going to name this island “the barefoot island.” I’ve taken to trails, lava rocks, sludgy mud, greens, dirt, sand, and glass of the sea through the soles of my feet. This is the mother beneath my feet vibrating life from my toes to my tips radiating high above me. Thank you, Kauai, you are inside of me.
