Visioning Realities for Real.

In the year 2000, I was in my late 20s and blissfully crazy and single.  I took off for about 10 days in April of that year to the Amazon region of Brazil.  One of my best friends in law school had just had a baby, and I went to both visit her and for some adventure.  I headed south.  Flew into Caracas without a concrete plan on how to the northermost part of Brazil — through the country ov Venezuela (and right after a devastaing mudslide).  I stayed in small hotels, trusted everyone who wanted to help me find my way, I figured out my way bus by bus and town by town.  I made it to Brazil in about two days.  



The three joys that I remember most about my trip, other than being with my friend and her beautiful baby girl, were the monsoons (I think rain and rivers are just part of me), the hammocks, and the Venezuelan coffee in the train stations and airports (I still have not had any better).  While in Boa Vista, I bought a hammock of my own to bring back with me.  It’s beautiful, and I love it.  

Until yesterday, my hammock lay folded in a box.  12 years ago this month, I bought this hammock.  Frank and I found a place to hang it yesterday, he took a trip to the hardware store to get the right equipment after one failed attempt, and, then, I lay in that beautiful memory for a couple of hours.  


I had a vision.  It may have taken 12 years, but my vision became a reality yesterday.  What is your vision today?  It can be as simple as having a hammock to lie in and read.  Or, it can be as large as finding your true love and having another child.  What is it?
