It's an interesting life, here on the island ...
I'm always searching for beauty, no matter where I am but here, it simply hits you square in the face. I had stopped for one last pina colada, as I leave early next week and voila, this unfolded in front of me ... between torrential downpours.
It's clear my senses have been quite overwhelmed at times. It's been a return to a more natural life, of bare feet, minimal clothing, fresh fruits and lagoon-swimming. Torrential tropical downpours and humidity above 80%. But more than that, the island has impacted me at a psychological level too. There is nowhere to wander, and I have always wandered ... out of 'situations' and into the world.
I understand that I couldn't stay here forever. I have loved my time here. It has been the most extraordinary privilege to find a job that would bring me here but ... I'm ready to leave now.
But first ... the Saturday Market, with the Czaria.
