01 Dec Aloha e my Wonderful Husband, Happy Birthday my Beloved Bert
♡ Aloha e my Wonderful Husband, Happy Birthday my Beloved Bert,
I walked to the seaside today, reached my hands into the waves of this wintery Northern Pacific, sang Happy Birthday to you, sent you every wonderful wish I could think of, and for your heart to have infinite happiness and fulfillment.
I trust Ka Mana O Ke Kai (the powers and spirit of the sea) will deliver my wishes to you, sailing beyond the South Seas.
How perfect that the skies would clear, the wind and swell subside for this day; I hope it is absolutely remarkable for you.
It has been under many skies, many days/many nights, many seasons, in all weather that you and I have worked together on Seaburban; beyond tired, beyond sore, beyond hungry… to scrape, fill, sand, tape, clean, prime, paint, wash, polish, plid, repair, replace, maneuver, install, trim, tighten, load, lift, lower, push, pull, hold, pack, measure, assemble, erect, connect, re-pattern, re-canvas, cut, sew, refit, refine, pick up parts, provisions, stow, clean, etc, then all over again.
You say my hands have worked on every inch of Seaburban; a labour I have done with care and devotion. I would do it all again. Your dream was an amazing surprise; I am so happy it has come true for you.
Your Wahine awaits,
in great anticipation,
with Barnicle Buster
and all I can muster,
to ready Seaburban,
Aloha, my amazing Bert,
Hau ‘oli La Hanau
Your loving wife, Nani
