Moeyness said...

stay then! (also, nice picture! keep your eyes on the road brah!)

Sym said...

wow is a beautiful!!!!!
i love rainbow

Alice Thompson said...

I like Rainbows. You are just going to leave temporarily. Once the 'aina has hold of you... it will never let you go.

ArtforLife42 said...

did you guys ever consider staying there?

Nene said...

lovely!

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

I was 10 years old when I left hawaii in the mid 50's..i cried all the way across the pacific and all the way from la to laredo, texas..talk about a shock to the system..hawii to laredo texas..eeek

Liane said...

awwwwwe... sad! well, you don't have to leave! :) that is a nice pic of the rainbow breaking thru the dark clouds!

Ryan Kiefer said...

I wish my drive looked like this.

kiarash said...

Fantastic view.I wish I could be there.

Tiffany said...

They're so beautiful. There's nothing like it. I swear I drove right through a rainbow in Kapolei earlier this week. It was right in front of me on the road, I could reach out and touch it, and then suddenly it moved. It was the strangest thing...

Jaime said...

Wow, that's so beautiful. It made my morning. :]

manuela.22 said...

You're terribly right Jorge! Rainbows are the things I miss more about hawaii.. like Iz said, you're so lucky to be there..

Demetrios said...

Wow.... Have you caught that pesky Leprechan yet?

Alisha Rene' said...

that is cool

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

LOVELY :)

Curt Rogers said...

Sir, don't take a single moment for granted.

I'm sure you won't.

The Shapusens said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I wish my commute looked like that.

Petra said...

Spectacular! I suppose it is the geography, but I have never seen a rainbow so low and wide before!

Thank you both for sharing a little bit of your lives.

: ) P

Hawklady said...

so beautiful!

Capmaster said...

Beautiful scenery!

When you see that on the way in, are you ever tempted to play hookey that day? Or would that mean Hurley would surely end up as a light snack for Smokey in the next episode?

Michelle said...

so why not stay?

Cindy said...

Beautiful. My 6 yr old loves, loves, loves to see rainbows and always wants to find the end.

Catherine said...

That's sad. :(
Do you already know what's coming up next for you?

Shannon said...

Wow, that's gorgeous. I don't know that I could leave there. It's so pretty everywhere you look!

Tiffany said...

That is absolutely GORGEOUS! I'd miss the view too!

RyGuy said...

That is so beautiful! I wish my commute was that amazing. Enjoy it! :)

Pam said...

Can't argue with you there. beautiful!

Jules said...

Ahhhh.. Hawaii rainbow... beautiful...

Andrew Bruins said...

Wow, that's an awesome picture.

Lauren said...

Gorgeous!

Pelekai said...

I lived on Oahu for 9 years as a kid, I still miss it. There really is no place like it. :)

JS said...

Lovely.

I thought you were using DIQUS?

Rena said...

That's gorgeous. I shouldn't complain about my one mile commute... but it sure doesn't look like that!

Paula said...

Beautiful!!!

dreardon56 said...

Why leave, where could you go that's better?

Kara said...

Beautiful!

Choppy said...

wow, that's so beautiful!

Beth said...

Rainbows make me smile. :)

Crista said...

awesome! how lucky you are! :)

Hadley said...

If possible, you should have a home/apartment there so you can come back to the rainbows.

Lindsey said...

It's a double! SOoooo pretty. I want to go to Hawaii some day.

Shanathalas said...

I didn't even think about the effect the ending of the show would have on where you'd live. I guess it's unusual for a prime time show to be filmed in Hawaii. However, there are plenty filmed here in Vancouver. It's gorgeous here, though it's kinda more rain than rainbows.

Ralph- said...

That rainbow is cool and all, but damn, look at the traffic! I would kill for that amount of people on the road

jen said...

Aww! You two don't plan on staying there after? Whatever will happen to our beloved Dispatches from the Island?

Maxi Bort said...

should I stay or should I go.......

greetings Jorge!!!
YO VOTO PORQUE HUGO SEA EL ELEGIDO!!! HUGO RULES DUDE!!!

Jodi said...

You should stay out there or keep your rental house so you can visit or have long weekends.

What a beautiful rainbow!!

Holly said...

So, don't leave.

e preston said...

wow!

Stacy Disarrayed said...

Oooh it's a double! Nice. I'd miss it too!

A Comedic Author, With Rat Training Tendencies said...

when I lived in Florida, I loved the smell of Orange Blossoms. When I lived in San Francisco, I loved driving by Ocean Beach EVERY morning. (sand dollars the size of my head, too) I was in Hawaii once, for a week, five years ago- and I will never forget the smell of Plumeria, and the guys who use the word Bruthah, for every thing. (And ABC stores, but they're all over Vegas, too)

piter said...

Hola Jorge,

Bonito arco iris, pero seguro que tambien surgirán alla donde vayas.
Aqui en España ya lo podrás observar, yo te invito a que vengas, podriamos disfrutar de esos arco iris. Pero Hawaii es un sitio especial, entiendo perfectamente lo que quieres decir.

Alison said...

You should tell your agent to get you a recurring role on the new Hawaii Five-O.

yas said...

wow! this is beautiful, but also sad :(

Chrissy Conklin said...

Wait, why would you ever leave that place?

Cuz of work? I'll write a pilot and come live out there too. you can be my main character!

... I love Hawai'i's rainbows. I saw three of them right next to each other over the Napali coast once. Stunning.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Dude that is one pretty awesome commute!

Mark said...

LOL @ you'll miss the commute! I take it you thought we'd assume the rainbow... yeah yeah not funny if you have to explain the joke...

Erin said...

Man. Gorgeous!!

Abigail said...

That is so beautiful. Thank you.

The Photo Huntress said...

Well... Hawaii is known as the rainbow state. lol

moon said...

Roy G. Biv!

mabochda said...

that is awesome!

Joaquin Joatcher 1 said...

If you're coming back to LA you won't miss too much as we've had some pretty awesome rainbows lately...

Sarah said...

I'm a little jealous. Roadkill and bad drivers are all I tend to see on my commute to work.

D.Reading said...

I sure hope you enjoyed your amazing experience! I know I did watching the show :) It's so sad to see it go :'(

Kailua Fan said...

I have some nice photos from the Sunset on the Beach premier, and of me and you on screen in LA X 2. Is it possible to post photos on your blog?

Pulelehua said...

You & Beth will be missed when you leave! Visit often!
Hey - aren't cell phones while driving not allowed here? (Be safe!)

(ps - Mahalo for the blog & the podcast! Love 'em both!)

Ananitta said...

What a perfect rainbow!!! It seems like you finally could find a gold pot at the end of it!!

Karen said...

We will miss YOU - maybe a spin off - with you as the star character???? Hmmmm!!

Mark said...

What are you going to call your blog after you leave Hawaii?

Jenea said...

When, I look on this Image, I remeber great hawaii's song by Israel" Over the rainbow ", - my favorite!!!!! Jorge, it's so interesting, when you will move away from the island, you will change name of your blog???

Josh Taback said...

And we'll miss you sir. Don't know what we'll do without our Hurley fix.

Rose said...

Thats so beautiful! Pretty colours.

fer. said...

dude, nice picture. xoxo from very far (brazil)

Ela and Daniel Asisi said...

It's beautiful! I'm coming to Hawaii in a few weeks, I can't wait to see what the island has to offer. LOL! That sounded a little Lostish. Not intended!

Ross and Roll said...

We had one of these in Calabasas, CA not too long ago. But it happens, ya know, like once every 5 years. Not on the daily like in Oahu. Love GJB!!! Peace

Jorge Garcia said...

It's a great sketch Josh

Josh Taback said...

Thanks Jorge! I'm honored.

Eric said...

I'm glad you're savoring the moments.

tammy said...

I've had a couple commutes this past month that looked just like this.
[I live in the San Francisco area.]
Beautiful photo!

McCulloch Moments said...

That's beautiful!!

Tiffany Noélli said...

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dream of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dream of
Dreams really do come true...

Deb said...

Sorry if this was already answered:

Are you going to continue blogging??

I started following you b/c of the Lost and HI connections (I'm from Maui and just love "visiting" home anyway I can), but stayed following you b/c you make make me smile:)

So I hope this is not the end of Dispatches...

Lisa said...

Wow, that is an awesomely beautiful view! As far as you leaving Hawaii, that seems really sad as it signals the end of a great TV show. I know I, for one, do not think I will ever find a show as brilliant as LOST. The whole experience has been a blast. Thanks for your part in that. You are an amazing actor and person.

heartstrings said...

While the rainbow is lovely, I was envious of the open, traffic-free road ahead. I think I would miss that the most!

James said...

So Jorge, are you going to be continuing this blog now that your tour of duty on the island is wrapping up? I've only recently discovered your efforts here, and man, it's been a good time. Hope you keep after it!

AL-JAZERRA said...

salutti grosso,
alejandro

christa said...

hawaii 5-0 totally needs a sub-plot about how the detectives go to the island to solve cases. like you guys are their oracle or something.

Zindy S. D. Nielsen said...

This is very dreamlike, rainbows are beautiful.

Meribeth said...

Absolutely gorgeous.

No traffic either, huh?

Kate said...

Absolutely Gorgeous! I'm jealous!

Cheddar said...

I would be sad to leave too. Enjoy it while you're there!

ELLA said...

Will ya miss the RATS!?

mighty morfin said...

What a beautiful picture! So cool!

JJ said...

I've been seeing a lot of rainbows since my little boy died last August. I always think it's his way of saying "Hi" from heaven. And they always take my breath away. You're so lucky-you had two people saying "hi" to you.

galaxigirl said...

We will miss knowing you are here, it has really been a pleasure having the cast get involved with local goings-on, from fundraisers to symphony events to tsunamis...you'll be missed! Look forward to see what you'll be up to next...aloha oi!

The Engineering Bureau said...

A personal observation: The thing about leaving is that waking up not being on Oahu just isn't the same. I made the mistake of selling a radio station that I had there a number of years ago and moving back to the mainland to be an "on the road" broadcast consultant and owning a couple of stations and every day I have longed to be back there...Now I able-at last- to be at the point of negotiating to buy another station and finally get myself back there. In the end when all is said and done with modern transportation any of us can live anywhere and get to where we have to be and get back so if you are happy living there -if you will miss the living experience that is Hawaii by all means don't do what I did and consider staying.

realchemistry said...

Amazing view, I love rainbows.

The Andersons said...

I was shaking my head "yes" at the photo of the rainbow, and then laughed to myself about the commute part. I can't believe the traffic on this island. Ridic.

Amanda said...

I moved off the island in December and I miss it so much! Now if only I can talk my hubs into returning...
