Profoundly UnBuddhist Rant Part 1

OH MY God!!!!! Look how beautiful Maui is. Totally worth the consequences of leaving on a whim, being completely broke, and not even properly packing due to the late notice. Oh well, Its Maui, a Free trip to Maui with my ummmm friend. To protect her identity, we will call her Christine.

Look how adorable this couple is. I hope that's me and Tom some day.

Awwww, even the dogs are happy to be here.

Okay, so I don't know these people but I had to photograph them anyway. She looked stunning, he looked a little scared.
Totally normal.

Wow we just witnessed a beautiful moment, I'm so happy. Hey Christine is it okay if we go back to the hotel you paid for? We should get a good nights sleep so we can see the giant Buddha statue I was telling you about, and then we can even snorkel where the cute little turtles are.

I'm so glad I could show you this Buddha statue. It is so amazing, and I love the trees surrounding it, there are pretty yellow flowers hanging off of them.

Picture time! Sometimes I wonder if her parents resent still having to payoff the thousands of dollars worth of student loans she racked up because "she had to go the the best most expensive private school to get her photography education" at. (only not to be a photographer)

This lady radiated sweetness. Pure. Genuine. Sweetness. Out of the blue, she came out from the little house on the Buddha property, to give Christine and I a flower from the tree.

Happy beautiful moment. Cant wait to see the turtles at Black Rock, this super beautiful area not known to be very crowded and perfect for beginner snorkelers just like us.

One last picture before we head out to Black Rock. The water was crystal clear and warm. I could not stop smiling.

What happened next can only be described as a complete cluster-fuck-disaster-of a mess that hit me like a ton of bricks. This is where I have difficulty. On the one hand, I want to take the high road. I don't mean to bad mouth Christine, it doesn't help the situation. I am still processing, obsessing, and accepting what happened. So, on the other hand, I have never felt so betrayed and hurt by someone I love. (well not to this extent) I can only hope time will ease the anger I have toward her. I dont want to feel hatred. Ever, but in all honesty, I dont know how I will ever forgive her for what she did. I cannot imagine where to even start to put the pieces together.
I am so glad that I had my camera and my journal in my purse. After I upload the pics from my phone I will post them and continue.
