See You on the Other Side of the Lime

Ask and it shall be given you, because it has already been given. Ask for light and learn that you are light. ACIM


It's Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago, the land of my birth, no description can do this time justice. One has to witness and be a part of it, and its like marmite, you either hate it or love it. It culminates with two days of abandonment in the streets where the party is from sun up to sun down!

It's a type of freedom which I find unparralled, I have witness it nowhere on my journeys. a vibe that hits you as soon as you touch down on the island, everyone is happy (some are way too happy) everyone wants to party and have fun, Everyone is friendly and accomodating, there are events on every day and every night, creativity is off the chain!

I give thanks daily that I have been blessed to witness this explosion of love and creativity

And so my posts have been less because I have been immersing myself into the events, the "lime" as we call it, the love.

I hope one day you can experience this feeling

so until then

see you on the other side of the lime

Peace
