I thought I would write while on vacation in the Dominican Republic, but alas, I wrote not a word. We spent ten days there thanks to the generous offer from dear friends and had a wonderful time. The resort was fantastic with lots of restaurants, beaches, activities and different accommodations.
What more could you want than laying in a comfy cabaña with the ocean breeze tickling your skin and a long, cool drink in your hand? Certainly not a notepad and pen. Too much for the day. Then at night, a beautiful seaside dinner, conversation and drinks with dear friends. Nope, no time for writing now. It will just have to wait till I get home.
As I look back on this vacation, I see how wonderful it is to just give up on the daily routine and take ten days off from everything, laundry, cooking, cleaning (don’t do much of that) and even writing. It renews your desire to write and lights up ideas that have been smoldering in your mind.
Thank you dear friends who gave us the opportunity to regenerate!
