Visiting Lei in Maui

I’ve talked about my rock star friend in the U.K.

I’ve also made a friend on the island of Maui. Ken and I ate lunch with her today. We talked and laughed together for over two hours and it was one of the highlights of my whole trip.

I first met Lei when Ken and I went there for our 20th anniversary three years ago. She was our friendly vacation planner. For those of you who have read my book, you will remember her from Chapter 23:

“Yes, I used to be a dancer. All I kept from those days is the hair.” She paused. “And the coconuts. They’re hanging from the wall.”
Her voice had such a lilting quality to it. I was mesmerized. I was also impressed with how fit she still appeared to be. I didn’t have any coconuts hanging on my wall. I would only need one if I did. Maybe I should take up hula dancing….”

Well, I haven’t taken up hula dancing; I’d probably break a hip if I tried. However, I do have an invitation from Lei to come back to one of her retreats on Maui just for women. Woot-woot.
