Every day I look at the photos and videos of the lava overwhelming people's homes in Puna, on Hawai'i's Big Island. I've stayed in the home of a friend there, which is now undoubtedly covered with molten rock. My heart goes out to everyone who's lost a home, and to those who've known this beautiful place.
Like many, I've thought also about what Leilani Estates will look like years from now. The landscape of congealed lava, after an eruption, is desolate and surreal, but in its way, also strangely beautiful. I post these photos of two places where I've taken photographs to show this, to honor those who now will have to deal with what's happened.
