The Sun Sinks Slowly into La Perouse Bay
impressionist painting of sunset at La Perouse Bay, Maui

Sometimes we'll have a day here when everything seems to happen in slow motion. Even the traffic has a languid, unhurried feel.

On one of those days, we hiked to La Perouse Bay to watch the sun go down. It took forever. The sun hung suspended by an invisible thread, its oranges and yellows waltzing slowly in 3/4 time with the chartreuse water. The resulting colors were like the overtones that shape a symphony.
