What do you see when you look at this picture? It was the right moment as I was sitting waiting for my mom. I stepped outside and captured this picturesque moment during late summer. The calmness in the ocean, bright blue sky, a little clouds, the iron shore popping out of the earth and a sea grape tree right over me producing enough shade to cool down that warm morning. These are the moments we lived by. I felt like reaching out that beautiful morning and desired to touch the sky. That’s why I enjoy living on Roatan, Island. It cleared my mind that one day as I looked back and steered at the sky and sea. I know inside that others didn’t have the freedom that I felt on this day. Some were in worse dire situations. However, living here vs there has taught me so many things. It is the little things in life that matters.
The community of French Harbour which is my hometown growing up has changed, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the memories of swimming right off the barrier reef. Building memories this summer with both my niece and nephews was important to me during the stay at home lockdowns. As my mind goes back several months, it seems like a bad dream. One minute we are locked down due to the pandemic and next we are back to normal after two major Hurricane’s directly impacted mainland Honduras. So after all life isn’t bad compared to what my fellow mainlanders are going through as I write this mini blog. So if you are here, enjoy the ocean, seafood, and life. If you are away, I do hope you can visit. Life is short so let us embrace it and continue to make memories with our loved ones.
