Visiting Mexico, Playa del Carmen

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
