Epiphany's Mantra

i thank You God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

"Eleuthera" means Free

Eleuthera is one of those stunningly beautiful islands in the Bahamas chain, at least in my opinion. I used to live there for about seven years and grew to love it as if my navel string was buried there. I am sure other folks who have visited the West Indies and Caribbean would disagree but I still wouldn't trade it in for the world. Although, I didn't live on the part of the island that is famous for it's pink sandy beaches, I did however live right on the beach. The picture to the right was my front yard.

I bring this up because of a recent dream I had. In the dream I am visiting one of the sites where I once worked as Assistant Operations Manager, and everyone there was welcoming but not. I have thought over the years that perhaps I should have taken the Operations Manager job and raisied the beautiful baby I had nutured for so long; raising him through expansion after expansion. But alas, I thought my time had come to move on and am only regretful of one thing - that is not buying property - well that could be rememdied later. Anyway, back to the dream, I got the feeling that everyone had moved on and so should I. There were no turned backs or mean words in the dream, just folks at peace with the situation. I used to pine heavily that the people who counted on us to keep them employed were angry and disappointed, I suppose after almost thirteen years, it is time to let go and I am free, so to speak.

I am going to miss you Eleuthera. I have many fond memories there and have made so many more important memories now that it seems we all have changed in a positive and progressive way. I am writing this as the chapter finally  closes.

The Island portion of the company consisted of the following:
