I bought quite a few t-shirts while we were in Hawai`i. My favorite is one on the back of which is written ‘Kimo’s Kaua`i Rules’. As printed on the back of the shirt the rules look like this:
Kimo’s Kauai Rules
Never judge a day by the weather
The best things in life aren’t things
Tell the truth – there’s less to remember
Speak softly and wear a loud shirt
Goals are deceptive – the unaimed arrow never misses
He who dies with the most toys – still dies
Age is relative – when you’re over the hill you pick up speed
There are 2 ways to be rich – make more or desire less
Beauty is internal – looks mean nothing
No rain – no rainbows
As is my norm, I began investigating the origins and background of ‘Kimo’s Kauai Rules’. Kimo’s Rules can be found all over the island. And always with a copyright attached to it. And the copyright is never to the same person. It is always to the company that made the shirt.
Then I ran across this. Mr. Knief, if you should happen to read this, I would love to read your unpublished book, Kimo’s Rules. I’ll sign an NDA of course.
