Still Down & Out...

What a revolt in' development, as Jimmy Durante used to say -- referring to my lamed-out state of health. ) I'm still pretty flat-out wasted and have decided to go home Wednesday rather than head to Kauai as planned. Sigh. One slight consolation is that it's been stormy and chilly here this week, so I wouldn't have been able to surf even if healthy…a couple of observations about Oahu: (1) There are really a lot of natives (non-Europeans) here. Unlike where I live and the natives (Miwok, Pomo, Ohlone) have been completely obliterated…(2) There is really a lot of surf (which I saw when I first got here); it's everywhere -- shore break, point break, cloud break…I'm gonna come back when I'm firing on all cylinders…my friend Tom has been a godsend, letting me stay at his place and recover. Been mostly sleeping for 5 days. OK, enough whining…
