Quandary Resolution 2192
sylvan, circumbendibus, aureate, chatoyant
Taking a relaxed route circumbendibus through a wooded section of Wailuku River State Park, Ric enjoyed the aureate late afternoon sun and the breeze stirring the long leaves of the acacia koa which looked so undistinguished growing in its native sylvan environment and yet, felled, milled, and finished, was arguably the most desirable wood on earth to a cabinetmaker, with its unrivaled degree of chatoyancy ("like a cat's eye", the way it ripples in the changing light) and amazing range of colors.
