WE THE PEOPLE WIN
Good news. Concerned citizens took legal action and WON a major court case
against a big developer who was violating zoning laws. We are keeping this
little part of the world from being "developed" unconsciously
| NEW YOGA INSTRUCTOR
It is exciting news to have found a wonderful new teacher of yoga.
She is presently a respected Iyengar yoga instructor in the Laguna
||Cynthia Neilson has long dreamed of
having a center like this for teaching yoga, Pilates, Qigong, Tai
Chi, art, etc. Besides being a multi-faceted healer, Cynthia grew
up in Kona and has an Aloha heart.
Cynthia hopes to set up routine yoga retreats with an eye on possibly becoming
the next Dragonfly steward. Knowing how good Cynthia is, I'm looking
forward to being a workshop attendee!
NEW ROOF IMPROVEMENT OVER THE SUNSET TERRACE
|Under the new see-through roof over the
previously open deck above the Lomilomi Suite, meeting space for all
kinds of movement, lectures, etc. is now ready.
||The new 26ft by 30ft covered space without walls has
a beautiful view of Kealakekua Bay, as well as a clear view of the
NEW PAMPERINGS AND TRAINING
We are now offering facials, manicures
and pedicures as well as exotic tropical body scrubs. In addition to these
pamperings, we are finding that couples as well as individuals are appreciating
the expert tantric treachings of Yazmina Lakshani
LOVINGLY GENTLY FINDING NEW DRAGONFLY STEWARDSHIP
You may recall from my last newsletter
that I am nearing the end of a 30 year chapter called Dragonfly Ranch.
It is up for sale for $795,000. I’ve had a few inquires. While finding
just the right new owner(s)feels like a bittersweet ending of a tremendous
love affair, I am in no rush to give up the joys of hosting the wonderful
guests who come to stay at the Dragonfly. Hope you’ll come visit
before I leave! (An owl just flew by the pink sunrise sky here in my pavilion,
an amakua omen confirming the wiseness of releasing the Dragonfly to fly
I have guidance to celebrate the 30th anniversay of Dragonfly all year
and make hay at the Dragonfly until spring of 2005. We are just now peaking
with workshops and loads of fun ! I want the Dragonfly to fulfill her
mission more than she ever has in the past. The present Dragonfly team
is capably moving forward with dreamed-of plans.
with glee, informing me, "A dolphin just pooed in my face!" He
determined this unique blessing to be quite an honor when I told him of
my request for a sign to be given to him.
|For 5 days in a row I have had
the privilege of introducing respectful dolphin-loving guests to the
Spinner dolphins in one of the three nearby bays. Dolphin visits are
always heartwarming and delightful with unexpected new twists. Yesterday,
while dolphins were swimming close to us in Honaunau Bay I asked them
to give a sign to a young guest (the seed of flower children) who
wishes he could give up alcohol and own his mission on the planet.
Shortly after my request, this guest popped up beside me

800 THREAD COUNT SHEETS
AND NASA MEMORY FOAM
All my suites now have these amazing high thread count sheets. www.overstock.com
Could it be that I could get in the Guiness Book of Records for being
the only high tech tree house with these extraordinarily luxurious sheets?
In an effort to make the most comfortable beds in the world, I have purchaced
"therma foam" toppers for some of my king size beds. I am experimenting
to see if they are better than the goose down mattresses.
STAINLESS STEEL RICE COOKERS
Sunpentown has not only the greatest
rice cookers / vegetable steamers but also stainless steel Hot Water Heaters
that stay hot and can be served by pressing a button. Upon request, I
have been drop shipping these items to people on the mainland. Please
let me know if you are interested in having one or both sent to you.
STAYING IN MINT CONDITION
I am taking a workshop in Turtle Qigong from a Chinese woman Master named
I figure, that with the aging process happening, we are becoming human
antiques. We might as well stay in "mint" condition. As my business
goes into the hands of my new team of competant people, I’m hoping
to have more time for exercise, reading, watching movies, laughing and,
of course, writing.
WRITING MY MOVIE
My movie, "To Die Laughing," is like a baby inside me, kicking
to be born. When I told a guest about the premise of the movie and gave
her a brief outline with it’s goofy ending, she looked amazed. "My
husband and I invited Goofy to our wedding in Disneyland!" she told
me. It turns out that Crystal and Byron Johnston do soundtracks for successful
movies and feel that our goofy connection is an omen of good things to
come. They are encouraging me to complete the outline for Robin Williams
to see so they can write the score for it.
I am making the leap into purchasing a state of the art digital camera
with professional quality printer--as well as housing for underwater shots.
I’m excited about doing portraits of people, weddings, and dolphins.
Dragonfly "advocate," Charlie Hawkins, just got the state of
the art digital movie camera. Together, we can work as a photo team!
That’s the latest news from the Dragonfly. Hoping you are all well
A hui ho (until we meet again), Come visit soon!
One less Moore Nov. 14.
On this day, my dearly beloved father and Master of Fun, Spencer O. Moore,
We were all ready for this natural transition so it is not a shocking
day. It is more like a Graduation Day. As I review his life, I am experiencing
poignant tears of pride for the privilege of being the daughter of such
a colorfully humorous and generously loving soul who completed his 94
years of life successfully, releasing peacefully and without pain. I relish
the waves of emotion I feel and am filled with gratitude and awe.
Life...and Death. Both are amazing blessings.
