A Prelude

Well I guess some background would be a good start to my first blog post. Where exactly to begin is debatable. One of the questions I always get asked here at the resort (yes, I live and work at a resort in the Turks and Caicos Islands- more on that later) is "how did you end up here?" I've become pretty good at being very concise and telling the obligatory "in a nutshell story" because lets face it people are interested, but they aren't that interested. And since I've been asked this question multiple times a week (sometimes multiple times a day) it gets very tiring answering and talking about yourself to complete strangers who may are may not actually be interested. Especially a life changing event that held particular significance to your personal growth, but you tell it over and over so many times that it looses its luster. *sigh* Somewhere along the way the story became dull. I left out all the best parts. The emotions,

the hardships, the darkness, the elation, the liberation, the freedom, the knowledge. Aren't those all the parts that make for a good story? The spark notes version does no justice for the human spirit. This was and is a spirited journey! I did what most are afraid to do. I lept when I couldn't see the landing. I followed an intuition. I made irresponsible decisions in order to take more responsibility for my life!

There is a quest in each of us. And it is waiting for us to begin...
