Honu…you may have noticed my affinity for honu (green sea turtle). It first began with Jacob’s connection to CT and Mel on Maui. Jacob had a gift for drawing and was mentored by them through the Ocean Project. His drawings are still seen on their rack cards all over Maui for the KIDS program.
Both Jacob and I did research projects on the tumors that were being found on the honu and we became strong advocates for protection the green sea turtle. Through Jacob’s cancer journey the honu became our family aumakua (guardian spirit). The turtle is known to represent wisdom, perseverance, and persistence. Over the years, we have had many wonderful experiences with honu, letting us know that Jacob is always with us.
