I loved the view of the Petit Piton from our room at The Mago hotel in Soufriere, St. Lucia. It was majestic; this singular mountain jutting up against the sky from the sea. At some point each day, it gradually disappeared behind a curtain of clouds, heralding sporadic rain showers. Later, the clouds would dissipate as the showers passed, and the mountain would re-emerge in the distance. It was magical. I felt every manner of privileged, doing sun salutations on the balcony facing the mountain every day; wealthy, blessed, nourished, powerful.
This memory was inspired by a friend's blog post that motivated me to list the places I want to visit, and those I want to revisit. I'd revisit St. Lucia, it's a good place to reflect and regroup.
I 'm in a bucket list time of life--
- I'm a single mother of a single child who's soon to go off to college or other adventures beyond my daily oversight.
- I got an invitation to join AARP and a membership card in the mail yesterday, a clear indication that it really is high time I changed the name of this blog.
I've ticked the typically expected things off my Grownup list:
- graduate from high school,
- graduate from college,
- get married,
- buy a house
- have a baby.
I've got to make a bucket list. Let's see.
