Dear Brian,

It is quite regretable that your life is such a continual series of hardships. Your karma must be horrendous.

Robert Paul Howard

Robert, you're right. Don't get me started again on our horrible karma. But since you mentioned the subject...

Last night we went to Mala's, a little beachfront restaurant on Front Street. Supposedly we could be seated outside by the water within a few minutes.

But get this! We had to sit at the bar for almost half an hour! Sipping a enjoyable glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, and munching on some freshly made tortilla chips with tofu and salsa dips.

Excruciating! Eventually a table opened up and we did indeed get to look at the waves lapping on the rocky beach while we ate our favorite middle Eastern combination plate with fresh pita bread.

Yes, it's a tough life. To top it off, I found a dragon'ish Tai Chi'ish shirt made in Indonesia at Hilo Hattie's in my usual XL. But then, my generous Buddha-like self took over and I got engaged in finding the best design in L as a gift for my Tai Chi instructor (batik-like shirts are all unique).

I kept replacing shirts on the rack, looking for the L that had the best feel to it, until I unthinkingly put back the XL earmarked for me. So I got back to our room, eager to try on my new shirt, and found that I had two Large's.

More bad karma! Now we've got to go back to Hilo Hattie's tonight and exchange the L for an XL. Then we'll do more shopping and god knows what else will happen.

Yes, it's tough for us here on Maui. Super-tough.
