“Hawai‘i has the key and that key is ALOHA.”
Pilahi Paki 1910-1985

A beloved linguist, Paki gave spiritual meaning to each letter of the word aloha:
This was adopted by the Hawai‘i Legislature in 1986.

A stands for AKAHAI, meaning kindness, expressed with tenderness.
L is for LOKAHI, meaning unity, expressed with harmony.
O is for OLU`OLU, meaning agreeable, expressed with pleasantness.
H stands for HA`AHA`A, meaning humility, expressed with modesty.
A stands for AHONUI, meaning patient and persevering.

I’m back from Maui- had a wonderful time (of course). More pictures to follow.


Say what?
