Calypso at Sunset; Transport Yourself There In Your Mind’s Eye

The richness of colors I’ve seen while traveling in the Caribbean is branded in my mind. If you haven’t been there, let me paint a visual picture for you.
The color of the water is a shade of blue that tempts you to just jump in and swim. If you’ve ever snorkeled in that area, you probably know that even the fish are brilliantly colored!
The sand on the beach is fine and your feet easily sink down from the hot sand to the cooler moistened sand.
In the background you hear Calypso music that easily captures that place inside of you that experiences fun and makes you smile. The percussion instruments like the Steel drum, and maracas.
Then the breeze comes up, and as the sun sets over the water, the profusion of colors in the sky make you hold your breath for a moment, and then you relax deeply into the entire experience.
Ok, so that’s just the beach, now turn around and look at the multitude of colors from the flowers that grow in the area, deep fuchsia shades of bougainvillea, hibiscus, bird of paradise…need I say more.
While enmeshed in those visual pictures I created a bracelet that is infused with all those thoughts and energies.
