Costa Rica – Part II

A week spent at Blue Spirit, in Costa Rica, is a study in slowing down. No place to be, nothing to do. If you choose, there are workshops to attend, beaches to stroll, or pools to sun around. In the slowing down, people open up and connect. The first day I had a conversation with Gail about her writings, children and parents. She shared details about Gothic sisters who never married, her father who recently died, a mother who thought children had no feelings.

I shared how the loss of my parents changed me, opened my heart, and produced a book. That for the “me” generation we were considered, Boomers had grown into a loving, nurturing and introspective group. 

The experience softens the rough edged exterior that living in our world cultivates, reminding us that sometimes, in the proper environment, heart centered behavior is not only safe, but rewarding.

About wendykarasin

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.
