I used to live in the city, rushing everywhere, crowded, and busy. Rarely did I see an open space of nature. The sky was always framed by buildings, lights, and brick.
After work, I'd rest by my window. One afternoon I thought to myself: "The sunlight shining on my eyelids is the same sun that sparkles on the tropics. The thought stayed and took root. I imagined the sound of the ocean, listened to soft music and relaxed. Soon I began to look forward to my daily Hawaiian vacation. People asked me if I had been away; something was different about me. I had a post-vacation glow. Soon I had it all the time. Traffic would back up and I'd simply remind myself that I'd soon be lying on the beach. . . Eventually. . . a seemingly mundane chain of events - by now I was open to them - brought me to Hawaii.
