Shot Of The Day

Face it

Face it

I had to face it. She was right in front of me. And I was suddenly facing the irony of my recent visit to two impoverished countries. In Cuba, I lived in poverty and looked at the tourists wondering how they could miss or ignore the devastation around them. In the Dominican Republic I lived in luxury, forgetting what was outside the compound of my luxury resort… until it was in my face. She was undeniable. What does one do with that irony? I guess I’ll have to face that too.
