I was a transplant to Hawaii from April 2001 to May 2003 from Texas,
the largest state to the smallest state so I was told. But I am back
in Texas due to a knee injury in July 2002 and my health declining.
The seizures came back too. I worked as a nurse part time; however,
the state was going to pay for online training so I could start a business
at home. The strain at work was getting to me but I kept quiet about it.
I had already begun to seek another sit down job but there were too many
people in Hawaii that are prejudiced to Haole's (white people). I also hurt
my right hip at hula lessons and used crutches at work for about two weeks.
I believe there were things missed by Social Security. They did not consider
my severe brain injury of December 1988. Click here for that story.
So much for the Hawaii experiences. I miss Hawaii but my return to Texas
brought me back to my childhood playmate and high school sweetheart.
We married not long after my return and I let him know I was back. I wrote
a story about that too. "Return To My Childhood Sweetheart." It was published
in a Hawaii website. I will add that link if it is not already on my links page.
I have written some lovely poems, some because of Hawaii. I still miss her
and my friends. Most of my costumes I designed and created. My hula instructor
aske me to design and make the hula dresses for my entire hula class. In the past
I was a seamstress. Most of the graphics in my website were created by me. I am
a photographer as a semi- professonal, not for hire. Prior to my brain injury
I did some freelance photography as a columnist for a few news papers. This
Waikiki Sunset background was created by me. I have built websites but nothing
In Hawaii my hula name was KaniLe'a. My pen name is my Native American name
Moonlightflower; however, I now primarily use my given name Carolyn B. Hebert.
I am updating this page to add it back. If you see any errors please let me know.
