Back from Aruba

My hotel view in Orangestad, Aruba
I am looking out my home office window to an overcast rainy day where there is enough ice on the street to have caused a two hour school delay.  There is still spotty snow on the ground and the clouds look heavy with moisture.  Just yesterday morning I was standing on a balcony in Aruba looking out at a beautiful ocean view.  My skin smarted in the shower this morning when the hot water hit my slightly sunburned shoulders.

I hear the sound of airplanes taking off from the nearby airport and wonder where the passengers are headed.  I am amazed at the trip I just took.  I will have plenty of material to post in future blogs about my experiences there.

For now, I'm just sipping my coffee and remembering.
