Into the Mystic

Adelaida in her “welcome to Maui” lei


Into the Mystic

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won
As we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows
I will be coming home, mmm mmm
And when the fog horn blows
I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float
Into the mystic

When that fog horn blows
You know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows
I gotta hear it
I don't have to fear it

And I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float
Into the mystic
Come on girl

Will they stop now

Who would like to leave this reality and go "into the mystic"?

This is a provocative question as I *land* back in the mid-south after:
April 20 -- Fly to San Francisco
May 13 - Fly to Maui
June 26 - Fly to San Francisco
June 29 - Fly to Arkansas

The trip, with Adelaida until she left Maui on May 29 (and returned to Ecuador on June 6 after a week in NYC with a childhood friend), and then hanging out with my dear soul sister Diana in Maui for the reamining time was full to overflowing. And now I am *home* and digesting it all as best I can.

Adelaida snapped this of us (with Diana) At Kanaha beach shortly after she picked us up at the airport

That I have actually dropped 10 pounds during this time is quite amazing. My body hasn't adjusted to the loss in the way it "used to" which resulted in me actually being unaware of it until I weighed this morning and then compared it to my last weight here.

I had some thoughts to share when I started this, but I'm feeling excessively emotional right now and will thus continue when I am more at peace.
