Welcome to wisdom scribed by Ruth Lee and shared freely here.
Recently I picked up The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings at the local flea market and thought little of it…and it turned out to be an interesting read. Nothing too cerebral…but I think after the past week of deep thinking here on The Blog, you all deserve a message that is interesting as well as encouraging in an off-beat kind of way that is suitable to the Hawaiian way of viewing life. Rather than belabor the point, I am including the synopsis provided on Amazon.
Fortunes have changed for the King family, descendants of Hawaiian royalty and one of the state’s largest landowners. Matthew King’s daughters—Scottie, a feisty ten-year-old, and Alex, a seventeen-year-old recovering drug addict—are out of control, and their charismatic, thrill-seeking mother, Joanie, lies in a coma after a boat-racing accident. She will soon be taken off life support. As Matt gathers his wife’s friends and family to say their final goodbyes, a difficult situation is made worse by the sudden discovery that there’s one person who hasn’t been told: the man with whom Joanie had been having an affair. Forced to examine what they owe not only to the living but to the dead, Matt, Scottie, and Alex take to the road to find Joanie’s lover, on a memorable journey that leads to unforeseen humor, growth, and profound revelations.

Can you figure out what another is after when they ask you a lot of questions? If so, you either know them well or you are psychic and cannot believe it now. There is no other explanation, is there??? :)

Out of the way places seldom produce a lot of traffic for those who are interested in only what appears in their view or mind for a time, but for those who treasure you or what you do, being remote can often lead them to promote you.
