We left the bay and are staying at a very nice hotel near the Cancun airport awaiting departure in a couple of days. The hotel grounds are peaceful and quiet. It's a relief to be away from the Sargassum, however, there is very little breeze so the bugs are having a feast. Someone told me that mosquitoes and biting flies are attracted to certain people and not others. Apparently I'm one of the chosen, because I seem to be a magnet for the insects near the pool. Forced to take refuge indoors, I found a well-stocked book exchange. I love the way books that answer questions or provide direction at just the right time appear in the most unexpected places. For example, a wonderful little book by Anne Lamont, HELP THANKS WOW The Three Essential Prayers. Fans of Lamont's humorous style will be pleased to find in this book a summary of all that she's written over the years about prayer. AMAG often says the best prayer is to "be grateful, inside and out. Appreciation is an essential ingredient in a happy life."
