Below is a message I hope to read over and over during the year, long after I return from a vacation. It is also a message to you, and those who seek to see life a little differently from whatever today’s routine delivers.

But not here. I’m in my third day of my trip to St. Martin, rekindling not only a honeymoonish connection to my wife of 14 years but an affair with the side of me that used to appreciate the bare necessities of life, that appreciated the world’s most basic but beautiful formula – sun, ocean, and nothing but sleeping, eating and giving in to the urge to be an animal, to be free and untethered from society.
