a visual of my roatan's message

I used the website to create this Word Art of the most common words in the My Roatan blog. This has been my message to the world these past TEN years of blogging about My Adventures in Creating Nirvana.

timely wisdom

the leader of the free world

President Obama is quoting Nelson Mandela in his most retweeted tweet ever.

"the only morally justifiable reaction is disgust"

Tuesday was a great day for David Duke and racists everywhere. The president of the United States all but declared that he has their backs.

When a white supremacist stands accused of running his car into a crowd of protesters, killing one and injuring 19, Americans of goodwill mourn and demand justice. When this is done in the context of a rally where swastikas are borne and racist and anti-Semitic epithets hurled, the only morally justifiable reaction is disgust. When the nation’s leader does not understand this, the nation can only weep.
- Washington Post Editorial

internet meme of the day

The latest meltdown. My maternal grandfather's merchant ship was torpedoed in the Caribbean by white supremacists during WWII. Although he's now transcended, Mr. Evans Cooper survived to tell the story. We must all act to smother and suffocate fascism wherever and whenever it begins to manifest its evil head. History is counting on us.

thelma and louise in the tidal pool

This morning, Thelma, Louise, and I visited the Shell Beach area of the property and their favorite tidal pool.

project x (continued...)

This week we've been putting a good a bit of resources and energy into Project X, a new space on the west-facing part of the property that I'm tentatively calling Serenity. The work this week involves installing reinforced bamboo fencing around the perimeters of the dual-level deck spaces located above Buccaneer Landing. The new decks have commanding views of the verdant ridges of Roatan, the Diamond Rock mangrove forests, the tranquil seagrass flats between the island and the reef, the Mesoamerican barrier reef, the Caribbean Sea beyond it, and the expansive, infinite tropical sky. This is the perfect spot for sunset events at the resort.

island angels

It's cashew season, and the other day Whitney and Britney dropped by selling roasted cashews. The girls are neighbors, their home is adjacent to Paya Bay property.

video: tropical storm franklin is just not that into us

Luckily, Tropical Storm Franklin is passing over 100 miles north off the Bay Islands. Besides a few showers earlier today, we are experiencing virtually no effects from this storm (it's actually sunny outside right now as I publish this post). As always, best wishes to our neighbors in Mexico and Belize who may be more impacted by this weather system.
