  • Walking on the beach, I look out across the ocean and see a small fishing boat pulling in fish along the water.

    Looking down, I see a coconut and seaweed mixed with the seashells along the sand.

    When I look up I see gorgeous sunshine and blue skies stretching for miles.

    If I look away from the water I can see mangrove jungles and a local kayak rental with an ancient man sitting out front. He smiles at me, creasing the deep wrinkles on his face.

    As I look behind me I see a little girl running through the sand, hair flying out behind her, with a margarita in hand to deliver to me.

    I am in paradise and it is beautiful.
