I remember as a child sitting at my mother’s feet asking her to tell me about growing up in Puerto Rico. The way she so descriptively shared her experiences I felt like her words took me away.
I am proud of my heritage and incorporate my culture into my everyday life, however I have yet to visit the island of enchantment, as Puerto Rico is lovingly known.
While I hear from many natives that it’s a nice place to visit and vacation but it isn’t too good for living anymore (because of the economy), my heart tells me Puerto Rico is one place in the world I would like to live.
I imagine myself enjoying the warm sunshine kissing my face as the children play outside, climbing trees and picking fruit. I envision walking the sandy beaches, hand in hand with my husband, the wind and waves making the sounds of music.
*sigh* It doesn’t hurt to dream, right? Maybe one sweet day we will make that dream a reality. I don’t mind if it’s temporary, just as long as I live the experience.
Where would you go?
