While silently taking in the Caribbean before me, I realize what I love so much about this view: It is without clutter. I see many shades of blue, the sparkling of sunshine on the water, a few cottony clouds, and a few sailboats. My mind quiets. Worries, calendars, and responsibilities all fall away. I hear a few birds chirping—about who will get the leftover bits of grapefruit in the bowl on the table, I imagine—but that is all. No cell phones or emails or possessions. I am still. The air is warm. I am both calm and energized. The ocean seems to go on and on. I feel a sense of infinite possibility before me. Hold on, I say to myself. Hold on.
