TROPISM

It’s wasn’t the rum back then. (Caribbean cruise in ‘01)
Nor the tequila now. (I’ve only imbibed once on this Cancun vacation)
So, it must be the tropics—the part of the Earth's surface between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn; characterized by a hot climate—that make me feel more alive then I’ve ever felt in my life!
My skin has the dewy feel of youth again.
I don’t have an ache in my body.
I feel energized even though I’ve forgotten to take my vitamins and herbal supplements.
And glory be! I haven’t needed a sinus pill.
I love it here!
I’m going to buy a house! 
Or a condo!
Hell! I’ll settle for a hut on the beach!
Yes, I’m going to . . .
Sigh!
Return tomorrow.
Guess the only thing tropical I can look forward to is a tropical depression.
Always, Em-Musing
