* I sit and write today's entry under the canopy of a swaying palm tree. What a tender illusion. As the palm sways, I can't help but think it is observing me and reacting to my moods. Somehow this island lives. It lives in a way we human inhabitants are not yet aware of, and it watches. It watches, perhaps through sensory organs in the plants, perhaps in ways I can't imagine. If I could imagine how this place lives, it would be the imaginings of a dream or a fairy tale gone awry. I do know this--as this dream continues, it is quickly becoming a nightmare. And still the island watches and waits.
