I´ve never considered myself a ¨beach person¨ persay, but after spending just a short two weeks living a short walk away, I can now see exactly why people that have always lived by the ocean have something uniquely more relaxed about them. Something about the ocean´s presence is like a reminder of what is important and real. Some how just taking a few beats to silently stare out into the distant sea at least temporarily dissolves my racing thoughts and various daily concerns. It´s like instant thearapy for the soul. After only a short time of calling this paradise home, I feel like I absolutely must live somewhere with the ocean nearby when it´s time to settle into a place. This island is incredible. It´s no wonder why the people here seem to have an extra warmth to them and a ¨don´t worry, be happy¨attidude.
