(Just a favorite beach song of mine so listen if you're feelin' it)
I thought I would say a short goodbye to this space where I have been writing these last few months. I had a forced hiatus in January due to a lack of internet connection in Mexico and it was a bit of a torture for me. I wanted to write and everything there was stacked against me...wind, sand, sun...Karma? The way it was supposed to go down? Probably. I made fantastic use of the extra time I had to bond on the beach with some cool people.
This time, I'm saying goodbye to this space for far longer. Lucky me but sad me too! I've grown used to being here and having my new friends write to me about my posts or just me writing to myself about anything, which I love.
I'm taking my iPad with me to some islands. They're great pieces of technology but sorely lacking in the word processing area. Everything I've tried to post on it ends up mucked up (gave up swearing for Lent, like that cover up?).
A new friend from Sunday Stream of Consciousness suggested I just do that while I'm gone. No formatting, no structure, just my thoughts for what those are worth and that's not much to most of you. It will be silly, beachy, rum-soaked me! Just kidding about the rum-soaked part but not the silly!
So I WILL give it a whirl. Please know that I will be reading all of you while I'm away from this chair and this desktop!
I thought I would include some songs that make me think of vacation when I'm sitting at home on a cold Chicago day...which is often! I would include a favorite island guy of mine if I could find a YouTube link for him. It's Bankie Banx from Anguilla and I've visited his place on the beach, The Dune Preserve, more than a few times. He sings a song called "Find It" and that always takes me back to the sand on Rendezvous Bay.
