February 2021 brought the 5th coldest ever 10-day period of weather to the Twin Cities going back to 1873.
Our frigid Minnesota temps were being blasted on the radio.
“Let’s leave for a month next year,” I suggested to Jody.
She was working remotely. What would be the difference if she was managing projects from a home office in Florida? 75+ degrees. Sunshine. Heat. Warmth.

The Atlantic Ocean is a 1 ½ mile walk from our AirBnB.
I’m driven to be immersed in the sunshine, heat, and warmth.
Sitting sedentary on the beach listening and watching the fits and starts of the waves, takes all thoughts from my head. Nothing else exists for that moment as the waves rush in.
I stay another moment, and another, and another.
I don’t want to miss a thing.
