Aloha from Hanalei Bay in Kaua'i.
Due to technical difficulties, Partial Ellipsis of the Sun will be taking the week off.
There were wonderful things about the okina (the unicameral glottal stop of a "backward apostrophe"), the original unicase or unicameral Hawaiian language (ron, jan---you were made for Hawaiian), and the a'a lava here... but my iPad is not cooperating and will only work in HTML mode. Also, I've been swimming with large sea turtles, fish and eels and need to get back there for the afternoon Anini swim ;-).
However, there is an interesting NPR story link on the first land-walking fish, Tikaalik (which does incorporate that a'a). :
Until next week, I shall try to embed a few photographs here. We'll see how it goes.

Palm trees, of course
View from our lanai. . .
And, lastly, wild roosters everywhere on the island:
