We are flying along our chosen pathway into the future. The years go by like telephone poles out the window of a fast moving car.

We see the small irritations and swat them away (by habit) as we keep on truckin’. We finish the day, make a meal, channel some entertainment and find our evening pillow so comforting.

We re-hash our day, make some hazy plans for the morrow and soon, Zzzzz, Zzzzz,
Morning unerringly gives…

I met the Gypsy Kings (before they were famous ) up there in their multi-caravan encampment, sitting around the fire, kids and dogs and great food with amazing music and singing. Thanks for the memory.

I awoke into a cool morning with a familiar pain in my heart.

Not the physical pain signaling a heart attack rather it was the mental pain telling me that failure was my horse and up ahead poverty was my destination.

Living on the island of Hispañola in the Dominican Republic is easy. All tropical, long deserted beaches lined for miles and miles with swaying coconut palms.
