My family vacationed in the Virgin Islands (St. Thomas)

and made sure that we respected our hosts long

after the bittersweet move out (still thinking

about Charlotte Amalie and Cinnamon Bay).

I'm forever grateful to them for sharing

such special memories, because the

Virgin Islands were right.

 

Tourism is not the only element that has changed.

Climate has completely altered St. Croix,

St. John and St. Thomas Islands.

Shorelines of 1992 have disappeared,

coastal erosion is alarming from one

year to another in the Caribbean.

Life thrives despite every adversity,

though the signs about hurricane-

resistant storefronts are an unsettling reminder:

no one can tune out nature's problems.

Or society at large either.
