Comments on: Bamboo Ridge The magazine of the University of Hawai'i System Thu, 06 Sep 2012 21:11:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: Matthew S. Kraus Fri, 01 Jul 2011 21:52:05 +0000 I am a former student of Darrel Lum’s from when he taught at Chaminade (late 1970′s). The Bamboo Ridge display of his work inspires the comment-offering (from Beachcomber).
“You would think he was talking to the waves or the fishes.” Said the beachcomber. The bird chirped as though it knew he wanted to have fish for lunch. In one case, the beachcomber did have fish. It was dried fish. Papio. For some of the birds, there would be Papio bones to pick.
One of the fishermen from the nearby channel, where the fish swam in close enough to get caught, said, “He’s got the whole world in his hands.”
And the beachcomber heard. “That’s a public domain song, isn’t it?” The beachcomber commented.
“Yes, it is.” Said the talkative fisherman. It’s one of my favorites. (Beachcomber continues- from Short and Very Short Stories) (Beachcomber was a hand in for Mr. Lum)
