Day 1 Cancun: Slice of Life MM Day#10

It’s early morning and I’m up and finishing off the night on the room’s balcony 1.  No sun yet and there’s a sweet chill in the air as I cover up  with a small bed extra.  We are above the center of the action but I share this first wake up with some of the staff prep ping the lounges with soft brown towels.  It’s been great to keep the habits of teaching a 7:30 am class strong because now, when I can move into the day at my own speed, I can really enjoy the freshness of a new start.

I forgot that here at the beach, dreaming is luscious.  The beds are perfect for the dreaming experience and last night to begin the week, my dreams were filled with blending of my past all in one new story.  Maybe its the novels I’ve been reading lately but I felt like something was stirring last night , something was perking…

So we are off… a light breakfast will arrive in minutes, Tuvia is already dressed and ready to begin the day.  I have to remind him to slow down and get ready for lounging at the ocean and watching me swim in every one of the 10 swimming pools on the property before we leave at the end of this magnificent week to come.

I have to find time to read slices!!!

Have a good one,

  1. Ahhh this sounds heavenly! Not just the location (although that’s gorgeous too and I’m so jealous), but the easing into the day, writing in the morning, taking your time and not rushing into the day. Enjoy your time and remain slow. 🙂

  2. Bonnie, you have transported me back in time with this slice. As you state in your piece ‘dreaming is luscious.’ I’m getting the vibe quite strongly.

  3. I’m assuming this is your spring break! I hope you come back refreshed. What a gorgeous environment for reflecting and writing.
    I, too, am quite jealous. No spring break for me! In my 25 years of teaching I have yet to work at a school that takes a whole week of spring break.
    My lucky sister who is a teacher in St. Louis is heading to the beaches of Florida next week for her spring break!
