Yesterday Marilyn and I attended the service at the Protestant church in Fare.  I recorded the following himene with my iPhone.


I was completely shocked to realize during the recording that I actually knew this himene very well as I used a version of it in my film, moemoea. That rendition was sung by the Mamas of Huahine on a cruise ship in 2004, this one by the entire congregation.

Here are just a few photographs of some of the women who greeted us before and after the service.Two Friends

Here is Marilyn’s latest drawing, thinking of her nephew, Andrew and wishing him a safe journey home.Untitled
