When you pack for the beach never bring sun block. There is always someone at the beach you can say hi to with sun block and plus it’s a great way to meet new people.
Jane, a corporate lawyer from NYC was visiting Bermuda with her friend, and we ended up exploring a lot of the island together, all because of a little bottle of sun block.
In return I was able to teach her to play pool, perhaps a little too well (she almost beat me). I love to
give people the gift of a sport or a new skill, they will always remember you after that moment they try it.
She also turned out to be a great dancer and at 4am when her heels quit, I made sure the hot tub was ready to ache her tired soles.
Treat strangers, friends, dates, enemies, family with tenderness & care, and you will get the same in return from the world.
That said Jane was not pleased with the gentle nudge into the hot tub, but she smiled after soaking in the moment.
Today I soak in sun, spontaneous moments and simplicity.
