As 2013 comes to a close, and we ring in the new year…here are my hopes for us all: I hope we all make mistakes. If we are making mistakes, then we are doing new things, making new things, trying new things. We are learning, living, pushing ourselves, changing ourselves, changing the World around us! We are doing things we’ve never done before, but more importantly, we’re doing something. Don’t sit still…get up and dance! Get your feet in the Sand, Walk on the Beach, Live ALOHA!


So that’s my wish for all of you, all of us, and my wish for myself. To make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. I want to make mistakes that nobody ever made before. Don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, that it isn’t perfect. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, whatever it is: art, love, work, family or life.

Whatever it is we’re scared of doing, let’s do it anyway! Mahalo and Aloha from our family at

Make mistakes, next year and forever. Mahalo Jeff Hood for your inspiration!!
