I know Charles de Gaulle said "Great circumstances bring forth great men" in 1956, and I know Elvis Presley made his first television appearance in 1956 on the Dorsey Brothers TV show .. causing a very conservative Ed Sullivan to state he was "unfit for a family audience". Sullivan, later in the year, hired Presley for an unprecedented $50,000.00 for three shows, but only allowed him to be shown on camera from the waist up. Was Sullivan the pure definition of a greedy man or a world class hypocrite .. or both?
I know these things because they are recorded, written down, filmed, captured forever since they were deemed "news worthy".
Behind our ReMax office in Kalaheo is another old piece of concrete. This concrete is hidden from view unless you walk out the back door and onto the lawn for a breath of fresh air and some peace away from the computer screens and screaming telephones. It was there I had another "concrete epiphany" and recorded the following photo which captures another moment in time that will forever remain a mystery.
I used to think it was cool to declare "I don't give a rat's ass" ... I won't be saying that anymore. I've learned that everything past is now precious ..
from Kauai to Paris ... and all places between
Aloha et Au revoir,
