Hilo Rain

Written by Ti Mo. Posted in Blog

Ever notice how a song can immediately transport you in time like the time machine in Back to the Future actually worked? Or somehow all the "treckies" know the secret to time and space. Like Ice Ice Baby- instantly you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing. Its almost like you can taste the air that day. And if you have really had a home, you remember everything. For a moment its like you are right there. Breathing it all in. For us its Hilo. And Hilo is known for its rain. And by rain I mean a rain with no comparison to Seattle rain or Portland rain. Sure it might be rain. But its almost magical. When you are drenched in it, running through the streets its like you feel washed by the Ancient Hawaiians. Its a rush of Aloha. It makes you laugh because your sopping wet. It reminds you of the power of nature. I realized by accident that I needed Hilo Rain to sleep. Sleep with peace feeling at home with everything around you. We had to make a move to California to get treatment. But the last few nights it was just too hot and too noisy to get back to bed. And there it was the blessed app on the Iphone. We turned on Heavy rain pour and almost instantly my breathing slowed, I got relaxed for my head to my toes and didn't wake up until the morning.
Timo wrote a song called Hilo Slumber. And every time I hear it I feel that transport and I let myself go. Its a song about our love for each other, for life and our Art. All the dreams we said we would never give up. And we never have. We have had to take the back burner to almost everything, but we are coming back. Its like a thunderstorm is starting to form and you are all in for the dreams we promised to downpour. When you listen to this song I hope that you are transported to your place. The place where you love, and live. The place between awake and asleep where anything is possible.
