Purely Dominica

Purely Dominica

After reading the posting “Little Things About Happiness In Dominica” by Veselo my mind went to a time nearly twenty years ago when I was under great strain at work and because some bad things over which I had no control had happened to me. I spoke with a friend at work who I knew had to deal with a terrible situation daily, because he had a son born with horrible defects, asking him how he gets peace in his mind. He told me that whenever he felt the stress rising within himself, he closes his eyes and relaxes by thinking of a peaceful moment in a beautiful place.

I tried doing that and it worked for me. I’m not so stressed now, but when I do feel stressed, I still do close my eyes and conjure that same thought in my mind, and it still works.


The place I think about is Douglas Bay, just on the other side of the Cabrits from Portsmouth. I think about the time now over 20 years ago when I was snorkeling in the shallow water of the bay with my wife and our daughter, then a child. I was holding one of our daughter’s hands and my wife was holding her other hand. We were floating over a small coral formation in about five feet of water. Beautiful, colorful fish were gliding about and darting in and out of the multicolored and fantastically formed coral and amidst the sponges and anemones.

It was a sunny day, and the sunlight on the sandy bottom around the coral was broken into sparkling bits by the action of the wavelets on the surface as we floated peacefully and weightlessly and absorbed the beautiful scenery and felt our family love almost flowing hand-to-hand.

Dominica and family – all I need for inner peace!

I can imagine that as I swam with you in that quite and peaceful place. Everybody holds precious moments inside them and its like secret treasure in each of them. I wonder, who can see it? 🙂 The nature and universe may be smile to us at that time. I never came to think of that.
