Portrait of Arthur by Phillip Dale Collision, 1986, Tacoma Park, Maryland, USA

Arthur plays the Panaewa Rainforest Zoo. (2009)

Arthur with his new mail order bride - a koa parlor guitar with wood from the Big Island, made by Larrivee, then sent back to Hawai'i. Needless to say I am delighted with my new friend. (2008)

Arthur goofing off with his good friend Tiny Gramburg. Tiny is Hawai'ian German, and was the shortest of his brothers, only 6 feet 8 inches tall...  We were on the back porch at the old Honomu Sugar Company Managers historical place in Honomu, Hamakua, Big Island, Hawai'i. Good Fun! (2004)

Posing with posies in the backyard, October, 2009, Aloha Aina, Hawai'i

Live at the beach park, November, 2009, Aloha Aina, Hawai'i

Cape Lookout, North Carolina, USA. July 1986

Posing with Posies in the backyard of 2613 Crestview Dr., cerca 1994, Las Cruces, NM (Flowers are Gaillardias)

Sitting in the flowers, with one glued to my forehead with sap (Wild Vinca). Honomu, Hamakua, Big Island, Hawai'i. (2004)

Pop and squirt. (2004)

 Playing with my son in the backyard, Honomu, Hawai'i, 1994

Having fun in the yard!

Chillin' at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Kona, Big Island, Hawai'i. (Oct. 2010)

This picture was taken in 1999 in the chapel of a small Hawai'ian church in Punalu'u on the southern coast of the Big Island of Hawai'i. (Self portrait using camera timer.) It was inspiring to be in a grace space, and the light was right! 

(I am holding a papaya stem.)

Hambone in a tree playing ukulele, Kailua-Kona town, Big Island, Hawai'i. (2001)

At Heron Lake, NM (north central) in July 2011. I got stung by hornets three days earlier. The red spot on the side of my nose marks the spot where I got dissed. Buggers... OW! Wow.

In Taos, NM, July 2011 at my friend Jean Jacques and Tara's place just off the plaza.

Bliss, Bliss, Bliss

Nalu means "wave" in Hawaiian.

Funny How I Got the Nalu Too...

Waves come naturally in the family. (Boy that coconut feels good on my gums.)

First Puke on Pop!

(Dad is 46, Son is 3 months - Old Dog WIth New Trick!)

Having Fun Sunning Your Buns. (Love those fresh, clean sheets!)

Hambone With Pineapple 

(Still-life image from the backyard garden, 2011.)

(Note how gray hair has emerged since 2003 when it was almost all brown... Each one another shred of wisdom, I like to think.)

Playing a gig at "Basically Books" in Hilo, 2012.

July, 2013 at the beach on Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawai'i, hanging under the Kamani trees that line the shore, after gigging poolside at the Saint Regis Princeville Resort. A busker at the palace, no doubt. Lovely. The sunset light for this picture was nice.

September 27, 2012, Hilo, Hawaii. I love to garden, and this was a Russian Mammoth sunflower that I grew in a 20 gallon (80 liter) bucket. Daily water and plenty of chicken poop spiked with mineral fertilizer made them mammoth, indeed. This picture highlights my emerging jowls and silver hair, each one another shred of the wisdom of aging... (Not to be confused with the wisdom of the ages...)

August 12th, 2013, a couple of weeks after my 56th birthday, I decided that I needed to put Henna on my hair to tone down the gray. I'm too much of a hippy to use hair dye, and oh well, I am resigned to getting gray anyway, what the hay, someday we all go gray, hey? Background are goodies from the garden: Apple Bananas, Grape Tomatoes, Anthuriums, Avocados, Dill seed heads, and goofball me with crows feet on my eyes and hashish adulterant in my hair... Silly is a counterpart to serious.

Spring, 2013, on the serious side, holding a corm of Taro (Okinawan Taro, aka Dasheen, Araimo, Kalo Potato). The leave was variegated on this specimen, unusual.

January, 2013, Hambone-ing at the US National Park "City of Refuge", Pu'uohonua O Honaunau, near Kealakekua, South Kona, Big Island. This is a major sweet spot with lots of tidal pools and Coconut Palm shade. I am playing the ukulele that I used on the Coral Reefy Song, R&L Custom Koa Tenor size, made by Randy Wong on Oahu from an old chest of drawers that was termite chewed. Randy told me that he bought this piece of furniture at an auction, cut out the bug chewed parts, and used the rest of the 50+ year aged wood to make several ukuleles. It is a 6 string model that sounds like a cross between ukulele and a mandolin. Koa trees grow in the high country cloud forests in Hawai'i. A relative of locust, mesquite, and other legume trees, Koa grows where it is wet all the time, so makes an exceptionally hard and durable wood. Nice!
