Tropical languor

Since my last post I have translated myself 1300 miles south and sixty degrees up the temperature scale. I am on an island in the southern Bahamas, with a dial-up connection to the internet. One gets used to wireless, broadband.

On the other hand, I love life here without a TV. Working with hand tools. No answering machines. All of that by choice. The only two accouterments of modern times I can't do without are my PowerBook and my iPod. Words and music.

And, of course, a dark night sky.

So expect some tropical Musings for the next several months.
