1. What’s a memory you have of a nearby stream?
The photo above is of a "stream" that flows in my neighborhood. In 2006 debris clogged this stream, it filled over because of heavy rains and flash flooding... and well, it flooded the roadway and surrounding area. Most of the time the water just slowly trickles down this way pooling deep enough at certain spots to attract the ducks.
2. What’s a good film scene or song lyric involving a river?
"And it goes on and on... watching the river run." - Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina from the 1973 album Full Sail.
3. What fond memory do you have of a lake?
I don't have any fond memories of any lakes since they are relatively rare in Hawaii. On the island of Oahu we have Lake Wilson up in Wahiawa which I never take notice of since I am just driving over the bridge that passes over it. Oh whoopee!
4. What’s the most fascinating sea creature?
The expensive ones that end up on my dinner plate... Mmmm... lobster, salmon, ahi, aku, opihi, etc.
5. What’s something that caused you to cry tears of laughter?
One day my sister and I had a hysterical fit of laughter after she noticed the sad condition of socks filled with holes that I was wearing. This was about 10 years ago.
