Aloha from Hawaii

Postcarder: Gidget, sometimes known as Woodsprite
Source: Hawaii
Scene: Orange and Hot Pink sunset, coconut palms, glitter. The glitter really sells it.

Gidget is a surfer, and my favourite pieces of writing from her are her love letters to the swell. I relish the delicacy of her descriptions, arising from a spiritual and technical experience of the liquid forces that carry her each day. I have had my fair share of waxing lyrical about the watery depths, but I never do it as much justice as those who should have been born with gills!
