Memento Mori

Kanae read the document for the twelfth time, both to confirm that he had everything, and to let it sink in. Again. He unrolled and flapped a blanket onto the sand and set down the candles, matches, boombox, and snapdragons. He planted his board in the sand, as well as the urn containing his great-grandfather’s ashes. He lit the candles and burned the snapdragons as he sang along with the music. Ha’ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana.
