Aloha! My name is Aurora, and I was born on Oahu but also grew up on Maui. Living in Hawaii as a child brought me the BEST childhood memories and these stories are what I will be sharing.
We lived upcountry in Pukalani where the view from our backyard were a few homes, miles of sugar cane and the ocean in the distance. At night when the cane fields were burned, the orange glow from the fire was hypnotic. During the day, we would see ashes floating in the sky, and I would jump in the air trying to catch one, hoping to not crush it between my fingers. I loved our home in Pukalani for many reasons.
