The deep orange globe sinking into the ocean horizon…

Feeling warm island rain against my smiling  face…

Running with boyhood laughter through tropical jungle…

Drinking sweet coconut juice fresh in the afternoon sun…

Feeling the warm white sand between my toes on my favorite beach…

Savoring a sweet mango from my grandmother’s tree ripened and yellow…

Swimming in turquoise blue waters warmed by near equator heat…

Feeling the the Pacific breeze cool the nights as the stars bring dreams…

Listening to stories told for generations that ignite my imagination…

All  my favorite things always lead me back to love, back to home…
