MY JOURNEY

In 2003, I chose to come to Kaua'i.  I had only planned to stay there for a little while, because I intended to go back to the mainland and travel around the US for several months...but the island had other ideas!  I was welcomed into a wonderful, spiritual community and have made so many amazing, love-filled, enriching friendships that it was very hard for me to leave when the time came to return to Scotland.  The beauty of the island has crept into my heart and I feel that I belong there in a way I never did in my native Scotland. 

The following quotation is so true:

"There is only one journey.  Going inside yourself."

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

My journey to Kaua'i, and my time there, has been part of my spiritual journey.  I challenged myself in so many ways, and learned so much about myself, during my time on the island and it has truly changed my life.  I look forward to returning to Kaua'i again!
