Help me escape this nightmare! You feel the same way, don’t you? We’ve been stuck inside our homes for two months now and we can’t wait to get out. If you’re like me, one of the people at high risk for getting infected with Covid-19, your stay indoors may last longer.

A remedy for this situation is to take a trip into a Margaritaville state of mind. Once there, you can feel the ocean breeze on your skin, smell the salt air, gaze out at a turquoise sea, and listen to island music where steel drums reign supreme. No passport, flip flops, or leaving your living room is required.

Where is this idyllic place? According to my coaster from a Margaritaville restaurant in Myrtle Beach: It’s in the tropics somewhere between the Port of Indecision and Southwest of Paradise. You don’t even need a boat to get there. Just let your mind carry you.

So play Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, fix a margarita with or without salt, retreat outdoors, prop your feet up, close your eyes and imagine you’re on a beach somewhere without a care in the world.
