riceywild-mugshot.gifI am only here now cuz three years ago I survived a hurricane. A giganto hurricane on the Mexican Riviera (Yucatan Peninsula) that turned out to be the strongest, longest, slowest moving and the absolutely most gargantuan of all hurricanes as yet recorded in human history: Hurricane Wilma.

Gawd, it was so cool, afterwards I mean. Bring me back! Bring me back! After the hurricane passed, I explored the Caribbean beach all by my lonesome, picking up shells and pieces of coral reefs that Wilma’s fury had whipped up and brought to shore. While exploring the beach I found a walking stick and eventually sat on a rock in what had been a pretty place when a sand crab scurried out and scared the honey out of me.
