"I must do something!" will always solve more problems than "Something must be done"

As I was driving to work today, the island was beautiful.  The sun was rising over Haleakala, and it felt like I was just driving directly into it…

It just hit me how beautiful this place is.  From my vantage point (in Waikapu) I can see the whole valley and the west side of Haleakala…

The first part of my drive is mostly green:  From Waikapu to Maalaea is simply beautiful.  You have the bush to your left and the West Maui Mountain to your right, and the road side is well kept.  From Maalaea to North Kihei there is tall grass and wetland on both sides of the road.  All you can really see is Haleakala over the tall grass – really awesome – the mountain, that time of day, sometimes seems to be standing on the tall grass (really cool)…

Just a beautiful view from my house, and a beautiful drive all the way to Kihei…

Then I hit Kihei and I got depressed immediately…
