WHAT IS AN ISLAND? Simple – a body of land surrounded by water.

Continents are that way, only bigger.

Greenland is the world’s biggest island, and Nauru is the smallest island nation.

An island can seem isolated, but it’s no different from living any other place in the world because we are all connected.
All human beings (the same and different) living here on the planet earth, part of Mankind.

Ten years ago, I left the island of Manhattan after 40 years of living and working there and moved to the five square mile Caribbean island of Saba with about 1,800 people.

I removed myself from relentless stress and too fast a pace, getting back to what matters most to me in life – nature – beauty – peace – joy – love. I didn’t give up anything moving here. I gained so much! Feeling I came home to myself and a better world.

With pleasure, I quote these famous lines from a sermon by English poet and scholar John Donne to better express what I’m aiming for here is this daily post on the meaning of islands:

No man is an island
Entire of itself;
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main;
If a cloud be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
As well as if a promontory were,
As well as any manner of thy friends
Or of thine own were;
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in Mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
