Hitching to Pahoa under the Albizia Canopy @ Puna, Big Island Hawaii video

In many ways, living on the east side of the Big Island was like living in a strange dream. Synchronicities and odd coincidences happened almost every day. Today’s video is a glimpse into that world.

I hitchhiked a lot when I lived on Hawai’i, but my favorite trips were when I could ride on the back of a truck. With nothing between me and the forest, I felt like I was gliding just below the canopy of Albizia and Ohia Trees, and in those days I would often play Washed Out, the band featured in this video.

It’s a challenge to capture that feeling, but the atmosphere of this short video should point you in the right direction.
