Sitting on the veranda, the sun sets golden, turning the mountains into watercolors–lilac, smoky blue, tinged with pink. Water, crystal blue with hints of silver and gold from the receding light. Cool breeze and palm trees dance gently. Egret swoops in, lands almost immediately into perfect stillness–practicing perfecting the art of patience. Brilliant orange, red, and yellow flowers, so vibrant they are bright even in the setting sunlight. Vanessa da Mata and Ben Harper Boa Sorte plays beautifully in the background. Sipping on a glass of red wine. Makes me want to cry with how incredibly beautiful this little piece of Heaven on Earth is.
