Anini Beach, Kaua'i, Hawai'i (Miranda Hernandez)
Anini Beach, Kaua’i, Hawai’i (Miranda Hernandez)

It used to be hard for me to get 8,000 steps. I remember one morning I woke up early, determined to reach my goal before doing anything else. About 6,000 steps in, my hip flexors were creaking. My lower back had hurt almost immediately.

It’s strange how we perceive change. Today, I can walk 20,000 steps with something like ease. It’s hard to remember the challenge. The change kind of snuck up on me.

Everything sneaks up on me.

I came to Hawaii to write. I needed to come just to be.

I love you.
