Planet Earth tweeted this picture and sent me into fantasy MAZ island:
I am in my hammock, surrounded by woods, listening to the water lapping at the edge of my yard, and writing about the sarcastic bird that built a nest on my porch because I placed my hammock in its tree.
In the winter, I watch the snow use my giant picture window to make me feel I am in a snow globe.
In the summer, my shoulders turn pink as I lay in my boat, late into the afternoon, hoping to finish one more chapter before the sun begins to set.
I get a weekly delivery of mail and groceries.
This week brought a $500,000 bonus check for my newest novel. I row into the mainland to visit my students, at MAZ School For Special Needs.
I got so excited about this little island that will give me everything I love.
I look back at the tweet.
I drifted back to fantasy MAZ island and found myself frantically cutting the island roots to float my island to American waters.
