I created this video with clips from our recent trip to Kauai & set it to Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole’s song “‘Ulili E”. I’ve always loved this song and after learning that “Ulili E” means sandpiper, I thought it was a perfect match for kids playing at beaches. Kauai is such a magical island and my hope was to make a video that gives a sense of that.

One of my favorite times of the year since I came to Flagstaff is Monsoon season. It has been rough for some parts of town this year because of the fire and flood. But the smell, sound, and air of this season makes me feel very close to Mother Nature.

This was taken in early August 2010, when I heard that the water was running very high. I’ve been visiting Grand Falls since the early 90’s and this is the most water I’ve ever seen coming down.
