The winter solstice is nearly here, and I’m working hard at embracing the beauty of cold and darkness. Nonetheless, it’s hard not to think about warmth and sunshine. Carriacou, West Indies. Yes, Carriacou does pretty much look just like a perfect postcard of sun and sand. But the sentiment on this little house represents what I really love about Carriacou:
That about sums it up, doesn’t it? This is a variation on a quote from Mother Teresa, but Mother Teresa added a directive to each observation: “Life is beautiful: Admire It.” I like the way this fellow just puts the observations out there and lets us decide what to do with them. The only time I saw the owner of this house, he was busy washing his hair in the yard, and I was too shy to talk to him. But I think he’s wonderful.
