At last I am off on vacation in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It is hot, hot, hot! The sea is teaming with creatures, so far I have snorkeled above a sea turtle in Akumal, and saw my first lion fish, and a sea cucumber 4 feet long. They have a gorgeous lagoon there, very peaceful and serene. I have been enjoying the layed back, walking barefoot feeling of an island vacation. As my feet sink into the claylike sandy beach, I contemplate if I could do this full time, actually reside in such a place.
What about health care, a car, an income? OK, one has to have dreams in order to survive the everyday existance they find themselves in. Art is my escapism, my way of disappearing for awhile into a dream state. Just as movies transport, so does art.
Tomorrow my vacation ends. I return home tanner and maybe more relaxed, only the stress of travel will tell. For now, I am off to snorkel and dream. ~ Callie
