I’m in paradise. There’s a shallow lagoon here, and I see life teeming below its surface. It’s so quiet here, but for the sweet sounds of voices down the beach, the breeze skimming through the palm tops, and the water tumbling against the rocks. There’s an island out in the lagoon, and I see kayakers landing on its shores and disappearing into the trees. I’m going there next.
