“Something Is Happening To Me”

“Something Is Happening To Me”

This goes for me too.  Something is happening to me. There is something about being here in Fiji that causes one to slow down, dance in the rain, and soak in the warm sun-rays (and also the sunshiny bula–Fijian for a hearty “hello”– smiley faces of the locals).

This morning right after I ran 4 miles, I walked pass a rubbery-looking sketch of a heart on the ground (the featured image above). My heart took it as a warm regards from nature. At this moment, I’m contemplating the word chamber, as in the chamber of commerce, chamber of a gun, chamber of a(…)
