Where in the World is Palani?
I have lived much of my life below the American poverty level in terms of income.
By rejecting the material possessions that many people cling to, I've found my way around the world.
Please, find a way to travel. Stay at a Youth Hostel- Couch surf!
(People who let travelers stay at their home for a night or two for free.)
You will see that all the people of this world want to live
and love just as much as you do. Much Love, Palani

Dayle (in blue) and his daughter are part of a non-profit organization IKOH that created and ran Ono Pono (common translation "good earth").
Ono Pono was located at the University of Hawaii's Sustainability Courtyard Manoa, Oahu campus.
Ono Pono's primary objective was to promote local organic farming and provide a healthy alternative to the chemically laden food that many of us ingest on a daily basis.
The indigenous people of Hawaii once enjoyed a %100 self sustainable life. Now, over 85 percent of the island's food is imported from the mainland, taking a 3000 mile or more voyage before landing on a Hawaiian's plate..
Sadly, Ono Pono proved to be as unsustainable as our lifestyles closing in 2007.
