I'm an Islander. From the one that housed me and kept me warm during most of my life up north to the tiny little island that saw me come into this world and gave me my first breath.
I wasnt raised on this small beautiful isle, but I learned and knew of its breathtaking terrain through the stories and visuals of my parents.
I had no memories of my own though. Not too many of us can recall much at the ripe old age of 1 I guess. That's when we left.
I didnt see you for 11 years, but you left an impression...so much so that Ive returned to see you many times throughout the years. I just couldn't seem to get enough. You call to me. Strange as it may seem, but magnificent at the same time.
Your warm winds. Your blue green waters. Your people. MY people.
Know that one of your daughters, like so many other sons and daughters, thinks of you tonight.
I pray that your shores, mountains, valleys, cities, towns and people are protected in the most divine way so your future sons and daughters may basque in your splendor as I have had the pleasure of doing. As many have. "Preciosa Te Llaman Las Olas Del Mar Que Te Banan".
