Wandering In Caye Caulker, Belize

When we arrived on the island of Caye Caulker, Belize, I needed a vacation. I was in the midst of uprooting my current life, trying to separate the seeds of what I wanted next from the dirt surrounding them. And man, was there a lot of dirt.

So, it seemed fitting to go somewhere where there wasn't dirt but sand. Sparkling white sand, pure as snow, stretching out before me like a blank slate I could wiggle my toes into.

Wanderings in Beijing

China's capitol city is also it's hardest to define. In parts, Beijing is towering grey, chock-a-block high rise apartments that all look the same- like a grim set for 1984 that never went to film. Then, you round a corner and find parks, fountains, shopping complexes that would make Manhattan blush, with restaurants spilling international music and cuisine into the street.
