The Scenes of Something Good

I love venturing out to the North Shore. Today, I met with a farmer and he graciously showed me around the farm and spoke with me about permaculture and the different variety of crops he grew. The farm had a spectacular view of Waimea Bay.


I felt right at home being up there. I even saw “dormilonas” on the ground. It reminded me of my grandparents’s place as they had these along the path leading up to their farm. 



They say working the land can be very therapeutic. I think so. Although there was no space for another WWOOFer, he said he’d be happy to teach me about permaculture techniques and growing agricultural crops. Hands-on learning to compliment the Master Gardener course I’m enrolled in. Woo-hoo!

After visiting with the farmer, I decided to take a dip in Waimea Bay hoping it would alleviate my neck pain. The ocean is known for curing all types of ailments. The waves were impressive. The relief I experienced from being buoyant in the water was short-lived, but I delighted in it nonetheless.


After swimming in Waimea Bay, I worked up an appetite and headed to Hale’iwa for some eats. I was in the mood for something fresh and tasty and found the right spot: Waialua Bakery. Everything was homemade. Not only did I savor a delicious turkey sandwich and an ice cream cookie sandwich, I also enjoyed reading the positive quotes on the wall.



I shared with someone on the bus today that I have seen at least three rainbows during my time here in Hawaii, including today’s beautiful arc over Shark’s Cove.  He said that means that my luck is changing and good things are coming my way. I sure hope so, though I must say if we look for it, we can always find something good happening in our lives. 




About Magaly L.

Five Facts About Me: 1. I was born in El Salvador, grew up in NY, and after being in the United States for almost 33 years, I finally became a citizen in 2013. I was super excited when I voted for the first time! 2. My personal favorites: chocolate, desserts, dancing, the beach, leisure travel, reading, juicing, gardening, cooking, spending time with family, and writing. I really do love chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate, but any chocolate is better than none. I also love red velvet cupcakes from my favorite bakery in NYC, Two Little Red Hens on the Upper East Side. And I love spending time in nature. There's something so peaceful about listening to the birds or listening to the waves break, that centers me in the present moment and reminds me that Divine order is at work in my life. 3. I come from a large family and I love it! My parents, two brothers, one sister, LOTS of cousins, aunts, uncles, abuelos, and my "gotitas de amor"-my nieces and nephews. 4. I am an educator both by training and at heart. 5. I have been living with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) since 2007. Though this condition has been life-altering and challenging to live with at times, it has also led me to a more fulfilling life, strengthening my faith and helping me have the courage to pursue my passions and chase a couple of dreams.
