Celebrations of Wonder 7

Sanibel Part 1

An Intermission for God

Sanibel Island, Florida

Sunday, Feb. 2, 1992

I know that God is everywhere and in every thing ... so why is it so much easier to find God and feel God when we are far away from humanity and its consequences?

What has brought this profound thought to mind is the fact that I am at this very moment on Sanibel Island ... one of my very favorite places in the whole, wide world (from my somewhat limited experience of the whole, wide world.)

Sanibel has always had a very special effect on me ... it has a certain magic and being an island it certainly has a special vibe of its own. 

When I made my first exploration to this magical place in 1979, it was the first time I had ever really made a “break” from my life-long surroundings and social structure and values. 

I knew that something was very different about this place and its inhabitants ... from anything I had ever known ... and I knew that I wanted to experience what life would be like here. So I packed up my life and moved but more about that at another time. 
Each time I come back to visit, I feel some of that special feeling ... I become really mellow and relaxed and the insanity and freneticism of everyday life seem to get left on the other side of the causeway. 

An escape from reality ... maybe? Or maybe it’s an escape into reality. Hmmm ... I Wonder? I guess it depends on your point of view.

As a holiday gift from me to you ... to give you more Wonder-Filled Celebrations ... I want to give you a FREE Mini eBook of Play or Pay: 77 Ways to Have FUN ... Simply fill out the form at the top of the right sidebar. I'll send you the link as soon as I'm notified ..
