It’s Sunday in Aruba. Sun is rising, winds are sweet, the waterfall( man-made) to my right, balances the breakfast conversations around us. Tuvia is reading the Sunday NY Times on my iPad as he gets ready for his very own that will soon arrive after the big reveal on March 7th. I’ll probably be joining him and my friend Christine is salivating for my old tech, iPad 1.
So today I am ready to balance the inactivity of the beach with movement on the hotel’s lone treadmill,if it’s working, find an hour or more before dinner for guitar practice to justify its journey here, and continue to wade through my video hours of Highland Falls teachers and make the cuts that are so necessary in creating something that’s 7 minutes…7 minutes???
It’s all good, but we are already wondering about Costa Rico for next year. I was ready for something different this year, but there’s two of us and I sometimes forget that. (I try not to.) But I think Tuvia is moving to my side without my demands.
Tomorrow we are off to explore more of the island in jeeps. Nothing too rugged but my camera is itching for new subjects and both of us will need something more dramatic, even in paradise.
I am anchored with internet. I need it, I realize to stay connected to my world, especially during the month of March. It’s amazing to see how many new slicers have joined this year and I wish I could read all of them. That’s impossible here for sure, but it will be a challenge even back home.
My big digital deadline in March 15th and most of that week back home will be sent hunched over this screen. Actually, now that I think about it, so what else is new?
Enjoy your Sunday
