Ok maybe not LOST, but there was a ship in the middle of the mountains as we arrived here today.

And there were some odd natives and a mysterious bit of smoke wafting through the forest. Not to mention the WILD natives...

Communication with the outside world is spotty at best and only via means that are intermittent and through means we don't yet understand, well ok we do, there's just nothing to be done for it. Having made camp, we quickly found water and washed away the days worries and sweat...and prepared for the evening meal.

Having become rather used to living alone, and working with an extremely limited number of people at a time, it is a bit of an adjustment to having a full house. They are a jovial and good hearted bunch which makes it nice...

But still sometimes ya just need to steal away for a few minutes of quietness lol. It's amazing how used to being alone a person can get. And how quickly you can miss it, or just need the momentary stillness before diving back into the festivities...

The first day in and it is proving to be a nice time, and after having slept a bit, swam a bit, eaten a lot... I am ready to settle in with a bit of tv and just sleep and rest.

I hope that you are all enjoying the Universe's gifts to their fullest and are able to find the peace to recognize the gifts of this existence.
