Now that I’ve been in Grenada for a while, I’m relaxing even more into the pace of life here. I’m generally a bit of a high-strung sort of gal who is always on the move, so in exploring my ability to “just be”, I’m realizing I can go way deeper!
You don’t have to be DOING anything to justify sitting by a fruit stand at the side of the road, listening to the warm breeze rustling the palms and mango trees, while watching the world go by and having idle chit chat with fellow “limers”.
I think we miss a lot of the world and possible human connections in our busy agenda-driven lives. The languid pace of life in Grenada is even evidenced in peoples’ gait: a slow walking pace, leaning back on your heels instead of racing forward on your toes.
So I’ve been very hard at work practicing the art of Liming, and as you can see from the picture above, I’m starting to get the hang of it. It’s a tough life.
And if this whole Liming thing has you intrigued, why not make more time for it in your life?
