“Stop laughing. You need the right attitude to pull this off,” I said to Rebecca and Marie, head turned away to hide my own smirk.  We shuffled our way towards the shrine looming at the end of the cobblestone street, less than a quarter of a mile away.  The wooden platform of the Japanese geta […]

Girls Get “High” in Hawaii (Skydiving!)

The small round light turned green, the plane decreased speed to the point of hover (or so it seemed), and the bottom of the garage-like metal door began to creak its slow, ominous rise.  Strapped into my tandem jumpmaster as snuggly as I would allow without dinner and a movie, there was no turning back […]
