Tropical Sensations

Slowing down to the true speed of often do any of us in this whirlwind, technologically savvy world really allow ourselves to do?

Being a "person-on-the-go" kind of person, it seems more and more difficult for me to do just this. My mind seems like it's constantly going:
  • What's for dinner?
  • When are the kids' sports practices?
  • Are the school uniforms clean?
  • Oh, note to self: buy toilet paper.
The list goes on and on.
So to be on vacation....a long-overdue one at that....hanging by the pool, hearing the water on the realize how long it's been since the body slowed. Since you could hear your own breathing. Since you just "were."
Reminds me of French Class in high school and the conjugation of verbs: "ĂȘtre."
"To be."
Clearly, I need a reminder of "Raison d'ĂȘtre" ("the reason to be") is to just be!

I need to do this more often. 

We all do.
No worries, ja mon!
