I had the privilege of vacationing on the island of Hawaii this summer (The Big Island). One of the highlights was visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Watching the sun go down over Kilauea is an unforgettable experience. It should be on everyone’s bucket list.
The best viewpoint is at the Jaggar Museum on the rim of the Kilauea Caldera. (Arrive well before sundown if you want a decent parking spot.) Of course, I had to visit the museum’s gift shop while I was there, and I found postcards featuring quotes from Ilan Shamir. His quotes are simple yet insightful, and while they’re intended as advice for life in general, the writer in me immediately applied them to my writing journey. This week I thought I’d share a little bit of the inspiration I found at that gift shop overlooking Kilauea.
