A series of posts focussed on points in a post earlier today at Just Good Music where I spent some time exploring the idea of the Boundaries that make Maui so interesting – and thenextrapolated to some of the musical boundaries that I am highlighting on Manao Radio this Saturday at NOON, Hawaii time.
Micro and Macro Boundaries
And yet if you consider Maui at the macro – not micro – level … you quickly realize that we are one of a small cluster of islands that are (very) arguably the remotest islands on the planet. We are 2,500 miles from LA, 2,400 from San Francisco and 2,800 from Alaska – and 3,800 miles from Japan – our closest neighbor to the East.
The Eastern most, Southern most, widest state in the Union. A group of 8 ‘‘significant’ islands – as Governor Neil Abercrombie put it – JOINED (not seperated) by ocean. And uniquely – in my humble opinion – JOINED (not seperated) by ocean from the rest of the world.
I work hard to try to show how the strengths of the lessons we learn here on Maui – and the other 7 main islands of Hawaii – can help us demonstrate to the rest of the world how we are UNIQUELY positioned to show the way forward in these tumultuous times. But that is a topic for another post.
