|May 13, 2006 - 1 month after our 5th Anniversary, during our delayed honeymoon,
on the rim of Halema'uma'u crater in the Kilauea caldera on Hawai'i's Big Island
This site was destoyed by new volcanic action in the crater, beginning March 2008.
This crater is huge; for scale, realize that the inner wall (in background) of the crater is over 100 meters high.

There is no business to be done on a dead planet. ~ David Brower (1912-2000)
prominent environmentalist and the founder of many environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club Foundation, the John Muir Institute for Environmental Studies, Friends of the Earth (1969), the League of Conservation Voters, Earth Island Institute (1982), and others
Our thoughts about the crimes and heroism on September
11, 2001 and in the days soon afterward, written in the
first week after the attack, predicting the unfortunate and un-American, vicious,
bigoted reaction from the so-called "Christian" religious extremists against
all Muslims (instead of just against the formerly small number of fanatics),
leading to the religious war within which we are now trapped. (Anyone who
feels safer today than before the USA attacked Afghanistan is not paying attention
to how the rest of the world, especially Muslims, sees us today. War orphans
make great future terrorists.)
