My very favorite color is the color of the deep ocean when a boat treads the water enough t make the gorgeous Caribbean blue foam erupt from its wake. The color of the deep blue ocean mixes with the sea clamor create the gorgeous blue green of the Caribbean waters. It is what I am looking at as I write this, perched on the very back of the ship. This is my very favorite part of the ship, because it provides a constant sound that drowns out everything else, taking away all the cares of the world. This cruise has, true to its billing, allowed me to escape completely.
This morning, we were not awoken at some hideous hour to learn about the latest drinking contest or hairy chest contest. We were allowed to sleep in, with the first announcement not coming until nearly noon. It was such a welcome relief from the typical cruise. I am very glad we chose this line, this ship, and this cruise. We needed the escape. Next up is the last semester of law school and a closure to another chapter of life. Many more to come, hopefully.
I have read two books since we have been on the cruise. The first one was pretty good. The last was good, but it reminded me of my former life so much that I had to look around this morning to make sure I was still here, on this cruise, with my sweetie. I never want to go back to my old life again. It was scary. I don’t ever want to feel that way again.
Today, as I look over the beautiful Caribbean and am thankful for the opportunities I have been given, even if they were not all truly deserved, and am in awe and wonderment that I do not ever have to go back to my old life again. Even if something happened to Sweetie, I would never have to be in a relationship like the old one again. Being alone would be preferable to that.
