Still Smiling

I now know first hand that laughter is contagious and beneficial to our mental and physical health and outlook in our quest for being in the best of condition.

My cruise mate and I had never traveled together prior to this trip and I was a little leery about it, but it turned out wonderful in every respect.  We showed consideration and shared space and made new friendships and above all we laughed and laughed like school girls.  One night we were giggling so much that the tears were running down my eyes and my sides ached, when we heard a tap on the adjoining cabin’s wall.  We realized it was 3 in the morning and had better quiet down.  But five minutes later, we were at it again until the next tap,  and then we quit and went to sleep.

Bermuda is still as beautiful as I remembered and the pink sand (is now in a bottle) on my night table for future memories.  Geneva wore a mask and hat that hid her identity from everyone and I wore one made by my student.  Some thought mine was scary and liked me better without the mask.  We ate and walked and drank wine with our fantastic dinners, had ice cream cones in the middle of the day and pizza at midnight.  We danced and sang with everyone at the piano bar.  I braved it and sang “Yesterday” accompanied by Steve the piano man.  If  I could only get over mike fright, I think my voice would not be as quivery.  The audience was kind enough to clap a little.

I arrived home Sunday evening with fond memories and a list of new friends email and contact phone numbers.  Now, to post the photos is my next challenge.
