be brave

for you have done the right thing

the best is yet to come


like pigeons scattering into the big blue
the residents of finca de jelica are flung back into the world
everyone following the crazy May winds
they blow our hair and ruffle our jackets
pushing us out the door 
and into the dusty streets
new paths
and new choices
be open and accept
what comes your way

thank you to everyone who has touched my life in these past two months
on this island or not
your love has been felt
and i will carry it with me
