To be blessed being raised in the Florida keys, where sun rises and sunsets calmed ones soul... feeling the heat and the taste of salt on your skin, the coolness of the water deep below, riding a dolphins tail, seeking out simple treasures of sea shells and drift wood and pretending to be a mermaid swimming with underwater creatures around the pink coral reefs. Wild islands not yet congested by humans, a place not part of the world today. Still, I have special places not shared.

my heart, soul and spirit
is entwined with yours... more »


is a priceless gift
that cannot be bought or sold
its value is far greater
that a mountain made of gold... more »
