Thursday 15 th Jne 1944
I Wonder if it’s because I haven’t been able to be outdoors for so long that I’ve grown so crazy about everything to do with nature. I can well remember that there was a time when a deep blue sky,the song of the birds,moonlight and flowers could never have kept me spellbound That’s changed slnce I was here
…For exsmple, one evening when it was so warm,I stayed awake on purpose untll half past eleven in order to have a good look at the moon by myself.But as the moon gave far too much light.I didn’t dare open a wtndow ,Another time five months ago, I happened to be upstairs at dusk when the window was open I didn’tgo downstalrs untll the window had to be shut, Thelr power;it was the first time in a year and a half that I’d seen the night face to face….
…..sadly….I an only able to look at nature through dirty curtains hanging before very dusty windows.It’s no pleasure looking through these any longer because nature is one thing that really must be exeprlenced.

FRIENDSHIP IN HAWAII
culture has its own ways to show friendship. On the islands of Hawaii,
friendship is part of the "aloha spirit". In the language of the Hawaiians who
first settled the islands long ago, aloha had a very special meaning. That is
"to be with happiness".
Hawaiians believe that once somebody loves the land, they are ready to love
their people or community. This is the second most important sign of friendship.
It is called lokahi in the Hawaiian language, which means "oneness with all
people". To enjoy the land you should not be selfish. The land is for everyone
who lives on it. Today many different peoples call Hawaii their home. Indeed,
Hawaii is a place where people make one big community from many smaller
communities. Each person gives kokua (help) to other people so that all feel
stronger. It is believed that the islands can be a paradise when people live in
peace. People are told that their actions should be as gentle as the wind that
blows from the sea. When problems happen, people are asked to solve them with
understanding. So when the people of Hawaii talk about ohana (family), they are
really talking about all those who live on the islands.
in peace, Hawaiians have developed a third sign of friendship. This personal
friendship is shown by giving leis to one another. The lei, a string of flowers,
is put over a friend's neck. Then the friend is given a kiss on the cheek.
Visitors to the islands are also given leis. When they hear aloha, visitors
begin to feel at home. Aloha also means "goodbye", so visitors will hear it
again when they leave. It can also mean "our hearts singing together". Perhaps
this is how most visitors will remember their new
