Tiki

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." ~ Saint Augustine

This tiki is the Hawaiian god of love and happiness. We bought him on our honeymoon nearly ten years ago to guard over our home and remind us to take time to enjoy life.  The photos that share his shelf also remind us that every once and while, we need a change of scenery, whether near (Cana Island Light, Door County - center photo) or far (the palms of Waikiki Beach - left or the monuments of Paris - right). It's always around this time of year when the holidays are over, the days are shorter and colder (and this year, bleaker without a cover of fresh, white snow), that I start to feel restless. Time to turn another page.
