This morning I woke up to a flurry of snow which graced the granite wharfs and, for a moment,made all a wintry wonderland. Must admit, I like snow and the beauty that is created. On the other hand, I was on the phone with Seaborne Airlines confirming my flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Dominica for our January Dominica trip. The sound of the native Caribbean voices, the music in the background of the call and the slowness with which the transaction happened all reminded me of the spirit of the locals in the islands which I savour. There is no rush and no problem. Everyday is a good day. Positive energy personified. It is easy to capture the island spirit as one slows down, ponders what matters and is immersed in the smiles of islanders amidst the brilliant blue skies and sparkling turquoise waters.
