I've been in anticipation of this blog for days! and never disappointed...
I just recently visited Kauai, and while I'm certain each island has it's own vibe, I resonate so much with everything you wrote. From the intense and literal feeling of isolation, to the plants watching you...I totally realized the plant consciousness was aware of my presence. Also how dangerous the consequences can be if you're not aware of this exchange between human and plant consciousness. I commented before (something provoked me to edit out my comment, though...) how, on one hand, you're not going to freeze or starve there...but somehow, you could get swallowed up, if you're not care full.
And the sexual and fertile energy, so true! One adjective I came away with of the North Shore of Kauai is "Romantic." We totally noticed so many locals with babies, and I even overheard some native ladies in the bathroom literally talking casually about how fertile they are!
The paragraph about natives in America, I just so needed to hear it from you, all these years, your comment on that specifically, so succinct and spot on.
I felt excluded even before I visited. And now that I've been there I fell like I'm "in," like "yeah I go to Kauai (well I've only been once, but I fully plan on returning ha!)." Actually, Kauai feels even more exclusive, probably because it's the smaller island, more "laid back" as people say, but less range of what the city has to offer. What's more, it's the oldest of the islands, and it's the "Garden Island," even more ancient plant consciousness surrounding you muahhahahaha!
The Water! I am such a water snob, having artesian mountain spring water 24/7 here where I live, but I definitely noticed how I was not just OK with the water in Kauai, but I received it well. It was pure and sweet and ancient.
Teal, find your self being in Hanalei, Kauai someday. I promise. True Love.
I could go on and on. Thank you.
Infinite Gratitude and Love.
