Thanks pen. I'm glad you enjoyed. I had to go searching on the net to check they had sloths in Belize. They do, thankfully. Childish delight is just a sign you are in touch with your inner being. At least that's what I tell myself. ;)Thanks for your comments.
snorkel and rap
Yes Pen. I haven't been to South America myself, but it certainly looked nice in all the photos. I've been to a few islands here, and there is a Green Island just off Brisbane but also another Green Island which is part of the Great Barrier Reef and further up the coast. I used to snorkel and scuba dive myself but haven't been for a while now. I'm going to write a short story or poem about that first time I scuba dived. The feeling I had as I settled into that underwater world was so comfortable and serene.
Thanks Demeter. Although I'm not a big fan of rap music, I appreciate some of the lyrics, especially the way they change the pronunciation to make words rhyme at times. It has definately influenced the way I write rhyming poetry. Rap and hip-hop seems to me to be more about the words (though hip-hop is apparently a lifestyle as much as a music style) and I like to write to music. I'm more old school though - rock and blues are what I usually write to. Even that took a while to be able to ignore the words and just feel the music. Thanks for dropping by. Yo, bro. Gotta go! Oh no! A crap rap to wrap this up. ;(
