So happy! It’s not very often I am at a loss for words. Everything here is so delicious; the colors are more vibrant, the flavors are more intense (turns out that’s msg. bummer!) everything is fresher. I would joke that the sky is even bluer, but I can’t tell yet.
I am dizzy. Maybe it’s from swimming in the waves. Or the drink I had hours ago. Maybe it’s from swinging in the hammock, or maybe for the first time in my life, I am exploding with pure joy. I feel peaceful, content, safe… connected with myself, my son, and everything around me.
This is intoxicating, though I don’t think I ate any lotus flowers today 🙂 I am dizzy from a slower pace, smoother energies, peaceful souls. Yet I feel giddy, intense, alive- vibrating with curiosity, too excited to sleep, knowing that right beside me is my fav person in the world, he is just as curious and excited as I am, but right now he is happily warm and worn out, sleeping.
I can see light from the full moon out the window. I know it is lighting up the crab-apple tree, the coconut and banana trees, jeans crunchy and damp on the clothesline, the hibiscus that have folded up their petals and tucked themselves in for the night…
A little further on, it shines on the sand, the ocean, and across to all the people I love.
Even under the same moon, I feel half a world away, floating between the two homes in my heart; my then and my now. This is where I want to be. I know that S and I could make a home anywhere we were together, but this is where I feel like I belong, for the first time in my life. But it’s only a week… <3
