Live by the Sun, Love by the Moon
Pampering your muse--with Island Time
When you are leading a creative life, guided by your inner muse, there are times you need to pamper your muse to rejuvenate your creative spirit, and inspire your wandering soul.
Recently, I was in the Bahamas to celebrate my 52nd birthday and it was the perfect time to pampering my muse the Bahamian way. The Bahamanians know how to live by the sun and lover thy the moon. They live life to the fullest when the sun is shining. Island time is living by the sun and loving by the moon time. A sunrise means a new day is born, but there is no hurry to speed up time. The morning unfolds slowly with the sun rising slowly and daylight breaking in its own time. Breakfast in the morning is a slow affair, living by the sun means you are in no hurry because the sun comes and goes everyday. The Bahamians are not in a hurry to get things done, be somewhere, or completer a task, or finish a to do list. Life is slow and the pace is reflective and contemplative. There is always time for a greeting, a smiles, a dance, and a song.
Loving by the moon means life if for loving—a moon-rise is synonymous with a smile, a laugh, a greeting, and a shared friendship, even with strangers. The Bahamians are an extremely happy and friendly people they are always ready with a smile and a greeting as they meander around the island, eager to help and please. They tell jokes, laugh with you and make you feel welcome.
Yes, anyone who visits will tell you that island time is magical time. It is like time stands still on the island it is living by the sun and loving by the moon…it is what pampering your muse is all about.
