(H)eat Your Heart Out, Samoa

Just think Peace Corps Samoans, you who sweat 24/7, what it would feel like to jump into a three foot pile of snow right now, or feel the cooling embrace and the tingling sensations of snow flakes melting on your skin, maybe even hear the sound of spinning tires. Sound like paradise to you?

Of course, it is human nature to desire what one can not have or to seek paradise. So this picture of me after shoveling our driveway for the fifth time in 24 hours is more a reminder of a life once lived and to be careful about pinning for tropical isles after a Minnesota snow storm. Sometimes wishes do come true, then what?
