Day 2

When I woke up for my first full day on Guam, my eyes shot open and energy surged through my blood. Could this be real or had it all been a dream? “Ahhhhh, I can’t believe I’m in Guam!” That’s what I’ve been saying every day since I arrived. Due to the time change, I was up early. Barely 6 A.M. in November and it was 80⁰ and sunny! The humidity made me feel as if I wouldn’t be able to stay, “I’m going to have to go home, I can’t deal with this.”  I felt like I couldn’t breathe, “How am I going to live on THIS oxygen?”

 I was amazed that this was real, that this wasn’t a dream.  I’ve seen palm trees before, but not….not like these! It felt as if I had been in a coma for the last 20 years of my life and, up until now, it was all a dream.  As if that world no longer existed.  As I walked to the beach for the first time I thought, “This only exists in calendars and computer desktops, this isn’t supposed to be real… and now this is where I live!” The water was an unreal, clear, blue, heaven water, which stretched out as far as the eye could see and almost blended into the sky on the horizon.  I had to touch it immediately. Warm.  Just as I’d always imagined it to be; perfect in every way.
