cheeseburger in paradise

Yep, I am hungry, so you get the Jimmy Buffet reference. He actually has two restaurants on Waikiki Beach. I spent the better part of the day with the Hawaii Council of Teachers of English at their workshop at Mid-Pac Institute. I loved the energy from the leadership and the membership. They laughed in all the right places. They had great questions and I came up with passable answers, I hope. The netter half toured the palace while I was working. He had a great time as well. Tomorrow we will take some time to walk around some more before catching a red-eye that gets us back home Monday morning. I have two books plus a little tiny bit of MOCKINGJAY to read on the flight. I have been sneaking in pages of MOCKINGJAY as I can given our schedule. It is nail-biting as I know I am nearing the climax.

Here are two photos I took here at the hotel. The first is a rainbow hanging over the mountain to the east. The second is the lei they gave me this morning. I was honored to wear it and hope it makes it through the ride back home.
