Weekly Travel Quote

Jamaica in the mist

“Preoccupied with paradise, I thought about the questions and answers that had devised this destination.  This was, in fact, not Eden, but a paradise built from knowledge.  In Eden there was no art, no wine, no lovemeking.  We are better off here, where we can combine childish pleasures with adult passions.  And although we cannot always stay in paradise, we can always return.”
–Patricia Storace “The Sum of All Desires” Conde Nast Traveler 1/95
