Have you ever been so low you couldn't laugh? Or so cold you couldn't stop shaking? Maybe it was work or losing a friend or close loved one. The ticker just seems to tic at a slower speed than it used too.
Well a five minute walk from a not so noisy Airport and a handful of change and the wonderful lilt of my island hotel's sweet, reservationist voice, Giselle echoes softly like the steel drum and I feel the smile in my soul returning. Paul, my "Elvis fan" waiter/friend and all the kind staff who laugh at my silliness, thaw the thick coating of glacial ice that has gathered around my heart, their presence, warming inside, all that once was frozen humanity, in me. It's just about this time of year I make the reservation and then I'm able to start dreaming again of my island family.
There is an old saying "life is what you make of it" I'm here to say Giselle and Paul and all the staff I know down there have made life for me for those eternal minutes paradise. So much so that I find myself wiping away the tears as our plane departs. Life is what you make it and the emerald of Lindbergh isn't perfect ,but it's still the jewel of St. Thomas It will always hold a very special place in this island wanna be's, heart. Joseph n Cindy
P.S. I just wish they'd let the front desk people have Air conditioning. and let us have a few hours of sweet and romantic dancing music at night. Thanks, JH
