James "Kimo"Rosen is a retired Professional Photographer
living on the Garden Island of Kaua'i
with his best friend Obama Da Dog.
I was excited, the editor of the Garden Island news had emailed me and asked,"If you’re still up for it, let’s start your column. I miss it!" Stop by when you get a chance and we’ll have lunch."
I replied, I would be honored.
Fast forward--The Honolulu publishers decide to not go with it in the 23rd hour. For those not living on Kaua'i, The Garden Island news is owned by Oahu publications which also owns the states largest newspaper, The Honolulu Staradvertiser. I am hoping they reconsider, in the mean time, I do thank the editor of The Garden Island news for going to bat for me. .
The enclosed blog was actually scheduled as the new come back column for Kimo's world in The Garden Island News!
Please enjoy my new column that never made it, but almost made it! ;-(
I would like to quote Marlon Brando from the classic movie, 'On the waterfront.' On how I currently feel! ;-)
