We had a good service for Ka yesterday, and I'm feeling the exhaustion of a stressful week. And I'm not the one who's dealing with the greatest stress. I can't really imagine how mom or my nephew feels.
Instead of writing about any of that, I'm going to post a couple of pictures from the last week.

I discovered my older sister had not been to the top of Haleakala in 20+ years, so I took her up there. Mom asked if she could join us so it was a trio trip. Beautiful, quiet, not too many people, and great views.
