Into Every Sun a Big Ol' Cloud Might Fall Up

Tis' the season and all that. Rainy, windy, cloudy. With weather and seasons pretty unpredictable these days/months/years, I don't mind having a bit of a rainy season. Sorry tourists, for you and for certain businesses, that it is not so shiny bright, but we used to have a rainy season, when this was just how it was at this time of year. Adaptation is good for the soul. If there isn't thunder and/or lightning, the beach can still be a dramatically fun place to go. Or the bar(s) restaurant(s) of your choice(s) that are open!

And p.s. it's not really rainy for the whole season. On days like today it sort of feels like it, though. More soup weather!

There is still beauty in the subtleness of muted light

Some wind acton going on!
If you wonder about how you'd fare on a very small island, here's a little test. If you can look at the same view 1000 times and enjoy the fact that it is never the same, in a way that really and truly affects your spirit, you might make it here. 

While you ponder those deep mysteries, go find some "Melicoccus bijugatus, commonly called Spanish limegenipguinepgenipeginepaquenepaquenepechenetcanepamamónlimoncilloskinipkinnip...It is known as huaya in Campeche and Mérida" ackee (in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Barbados) or mamoncillo..." to enjoy. 

The trees around the island are loaded. If you see an overhanging branch calling your name from someone's yard, don't skip asking permission! It's the right thing to do.

This one happened to be double seeded 

Which means double eating pleasure!
Apparently genipas are tres chic these days. Here is an article from Organic Facts about 10 Incredible Benefits, covering everything from bone strength to mood stabilizer. Who knew? Buen provecho!

If you happen to be in the NYC area, tomorrow night is a treat for Culebra minded folks. Ann will be performing! Here's the info. I don't like to steal artwork and not credit it, but hopefully the artist will know my intentions are honorable. First, it gives good information. And second, it's really brilliant art. Mea culpa, unknown artist! Break a leg, Ann!
