The work that went in to this surprised me.

Not only that it was hard work, but what surprised me even more was the work that the collaborators for this issue did.

Heart and soul. Sweat and laughter. A few tears (from me, of course).

And today I am sighing and still crying.

But out of gratitude to everyone for the kindness and aloha you are sharing.

Today I squeal in delight because a great team made a beautiful thing and now others can make it even better!

Mahalo nui ya'll!
