Day 1 | Landing
The plane touches down on a familiar runway and the peaceful feeling of “I’m home” along with a sigh settles in. The warm air washes over our bodies and the former chill vanishes. Getting our belongings and a car, we are off with joy and anticipation of what this trip will bring. Even sitting in traffic isn’t a bother realizing “we’re on island time”.
How did the pace back home become tyrannical? Must do’s, should do’s, lists, chores, places to be…on time – pressure! “Wake up, you need to make money” – (21 Pilots) – “Wish we could turn back time, back to the good ole days. When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out”.
“Look! St. Martin snow!” White butterflies swarming bush and flower! It’s magical! Yes! We’ve landed, we are on St. Martin! We are open to all the possibilities!
