I travelled to San Francisco in May and wasn't able to publish my May selection by David Mitchell The Cloud Atlas. My June book review is Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. The book is read and the art interpretation is nearly completed...and will be shared soon.
|I photographed these clouds, added the map/atlas & photo of Mauna Kea observatories|
At times this was a frustrating read...Mitchell would cut the story off in mid sentence and continue on to another time period. I took notes and drew diagrams to try and decipher the messages and relationships. The only clue woven through all time periods was a birth mark shaped like a comet on the shoulder & collarbone of one of the characters. This was and endless cycle of birth, life, death & rebirth and at times I wanted to throw this one across the room...I persevered out of curiosity on how this tapestry would look when all was said and done. Overall, I'm happy to say that my perseverance won out...the tapestry was thought-provoking...we are all connected...we are one.

I did not see the movie adaptation of Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks, et al., however after reading the book, I'll get the DVD...the costumes and set design alone will be outstanding,

The Hawaiian phrase for this month's selection is:
We journey to Moloka'i for June and then on to India in 1922 for Barbara Cleverly's
The Palace Tiger...
