Do you remember filmstrips? That's what life reminds me of. It just keeps rolling along one scene after another. And quickly, too. When I was a kid I couldn't wait to get older. Now that I am, I'm glad for the wisdom age and faith has taught me; particularly being in the moment and realizing it's all I have and it's enough. As busy as life is, that's not an easy thing to do is it? The older I get, however; I'm finding it easier and I'm thankful for all of the moments - even the difficult ones.
My island experiences are Celtic flavored; first Prince Edwards Island (of Anne of Green Gables fame) and the second time, Ireland. These two islands though not tropical in the typical sense are still beautiful, intriguing and mystical; although surprisingly, Ireland does have a tropical touch with some of its plants and trees. Our time spent in both places was memorable. If I had the opportunity I wouldn't hesitate to return nor would I mind living in either place. We saw and experienced a lot during our stays; enough to whet my creative appetite and infect me just a bit with Island Fever.
