Lydia had inherited set-points in trust, beauty, creativity, compassion and all those things humans are capable of. They were passed on to her in her DNA. Her early life experiences, and the ones she had afterwards, had calcified these set points so that the coagulation of the past manifested itself into her present, not unlike a giant scar. She was held hostage by her fate, her wings pinned back, allowing her to fit in the cage of her low expectations.

One day, she woke up to her own power. She realized she could shape her destiny by re-calibrating her set-points currently fixed at mediocrity.

You can see the bridge from yesterday’s photo in the background. Water canals like this one lined and defined the camping ground sections. Basically, folks set up camp, eat, swim, gather ’round the campfire and sleep. Simple.

This walkway led to a clear lagoon. People pitched tents and hammocks on either side. There was also camping available along the canals. All the camping areas were nestled within a grove of trees and lined with water at their perimeter. There were no reservations or site numbers. You pitched a tent or strung a hammock wherever there was space for one.

That day

That day, we got up and headed straight to the water. We swam all morning.

After everyone had left and the water was still, Fernando and I walked around the canals and watched the turtles lumber along the waterway floor.
