I had to step way back in time to find this shot of what I believe is the Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve. We had gone for our usual morning walk at Lydgate Park, just gotten out of the car, and I looked west. We had blue skies directly overhead and along the coast, it promised to be a beautiful, clear day. Most mornings, the view mauka was cloudy and we had never seen these mountains before. On this particular day, there they were, big as life. The whole experience was totally unexpected and it all came down to timing. A few minutes later when we came back from our walk, the clouds had rolled in and the mountains were gone. It was like they’d been picked up and moved off island! Sometimes, timing is everything.
I started out as a skip tracer. Just in case you don’t know, that’s the guy who finds the people who don’t want to be found. It was the little things—getting paid to lie—that made skip tracing the fun part of the job.
Those years of chasing deadbeats taught me many valuable life lessons, such as liars come from all walks of life, and always keep your car in the garage.
