Maybe it was the weather, or the place. Maybe it was because of the "Hakuna Matata" syndrome. All I know is that when I went to Kauai from Alaska, my pain level was WAY down. I actually had energy to spare and looked forward to each new day. Mother of Pearl, I even went on a snorkeling trip! What WAS it about this place? Or was it me? A change in attitude, a change in location? I have tried to simulate that feeling back home, but we're dead in winter now (in Alaska, that happens early and stays late) and even though I try and do as much as possible, it just isn't the same. I can't just up and move to Kauai (oh, but I would LOVE to!) but it is just so mind blowing to me how everything changed so suddenly. I have to explore this one. Any theories?
