This post is for those interested in knowing what I am up to in Hawaii.

Early in 2007, I bought a piece of property in Hawaii with a land-partner, Carl Wilson. Together we have three contiguous lots of 3 acres each, a total of 9 acres, located in Fern Forest, a subdivision on the Big Island of Hawaii. The lots are in the form called ‘spaghetti’ lots, so-named because they are very long and thin. Each of our three 3-acre lots (one is mine, one is Carl’s, and one in the middle we own together) is 125 feet wide at the road and 1045 feet long. We call the 9 acres ’3 squared’, as it is 3 lots of 3 acres each.

Three Squared is located off of Highway 11, the road that runs between the Volcanoes National Park and Hilo, just 7 miles from Kilauea, said to be the home of Pele, the Goddess of the Volcano. We are at the extreme end of the subdivision, at the end nearest the town of Volcano, our nearest town.

Our plan is to reconfigure the three lots, still having three lots of three acres each, such that the third, shared, lot consists of a long driveway/road to the back part of the 9 acres and a nearly square piece of land that is very secluded. My three acres would consist of the 3 acres on one side of the driveway and Carl’s 3 acres would be on the other side; we would each have a piece about 180 x 726, and have easement rights to the driveway, giving each of us access to our piece of land.

The shared 3 acres was originally intended to be offered for sale to a partner, or partners, whose vision and intention would be similar to our shared vision and intent for the land (see Hawaii project #2 post). As the land was inaccessible when we purchased it, we had no idea that the back 3 acres contains a cave, a lava tube, that is on the shared, middle spaghetti lot. We are calling that cave, Kali’s Cave, in honor of Pele, who, as Volcano Goddess, is to me the Goddess in the form of the Fire Mother, as Kali Ma is the Fire Mother in the Hindu tradition, as Sekhmet is the Fire Mother in the Egyptian pantheon, and in honor or our friend Kalidas, whose name means ‘Servant of Kali’. Kalidas was the first to discover the entrance to the Cave.

We are both awed by this discovery, and feel that some preservation of the tube is appropriate, as well as access for those visiting the land (again, see Hawaii project #2 post). We are currently exploring possibilities for including that preservation and access in any agreements we make with a partner, or parners.

We are still open, to date, to considering taking a partner or partners should someone come forward wanting to buy that piece of land. I am encouraging anyone interested to contact me about it; the first step for anyone seriously interested should be visiting the land. Also, please read all the posts as they appear here; this blog will be my main vehicle for communicating about this project.

Soon I will be launching my new version of my website, www.amaritha.com, which will have a way to view the photos of the Hawaii project as it develops.
