Another Day

It was last January that I went to Costa Rica for the second time. I met my dear friend at the Liberia Airport, to spend a week at a vegetarian, holistic center. The experience was powerful partially because of the natural beauty that surrounded us (the Pacific Ocean to our left and the jungle filled with Howler monkeys close enough to touch), and the open-minded caring individuals that gathered from every conceivable vocation and locale.

My friend and I spent 7 days side by side – talking, weeping, laughing. Every morning started with yoga or qigong, all meals were organic and eaten in an outdoor dining room surrounded by beach, ocean and forest. We could  literally feel ourselves slow down and de-stress. We noticed differences in our behaviors daily, spending time with people discussing subjects some rarely get near.

We left feeling revived. A palpable shift had occurred in our beings.

I am complicated and seeking - joy and sorrow, country and city, competition and cooperation. After behavior of a gregarious nature, I require down time to refuel. My loves are children, family, friends, reading, writing, blogging, fitness, and health. I feel most alive when I stay true to my core values. Beauty makes me happy, pain helps me grow.
