img_8262Written 3.12.16  Do we make our lives too complicated? I am writing this on holiday and as I write, I realise the irony of this: here I am in a beautiful place, “getting away from it all” and yet I am still blogging. Still connecting with the world, when what I have yearned for is disconnection, peace, less mind chatter, more clarity.

So I will make this brief, because actually it is very simple, in my mind anyway. We fill our lives with deadlines, pressures and jobs that 50 years ago were not even jobs(filling my social media feeds for example). We are distracted by what other people are up to and whether we have told enough people how much fun we are having, sometimes we miss out on a truly simple experience.

A dear old friend of mine has lived in the Bahamas for over 25 years I am lucky to be writing this on her kitchen table. Yesterday we met Charlie, who lives on a beach on Lynyard Cay. If you are curious where that is and how small it is, just google it, or enjoy the view from Little Harbour in the photo.

Charlie sleeps on the beach most of the time (weather permitting) and kindly took us to his beach where he cooked the most amazing stone crab claws for us. We ate, chatted, walked on the beach picking up pretty shells. Fabulously relaxing, this experience has been imprinted on my mind. Charlie trades fish, for other food, sleeps on a rudimentary bed, but is surrounded by beauty as well as the green turtles! I wonder how long I would last in Charlie’s simple world?
