I've taken the opportunity to start over again. We all get this opportunity each morning, but sometimes the choices and changes we make are small and insignificant and sometimes they are giant leaps of faith. I recently leapt 4200 miles to the farming town of Nuevo Arenal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Almost everything I own sits in a storage unit in Oregon while I sit here, between two active volcanoes and next to a giant man made lake that covers the cities those volcanoes have previously destroyed. (There's a reason it's called NUEVO Arenal.) I speak little of the native tongue, Spanish, but I am doing my best to learn. It is a very new and different life, though I suppose every move is. If you want to know more I started an adventure blog that I actually update so far. I hope to have locals in my pics eventually, but I sometimes see no one for days- though the Jehovah's Witnesses found me!- so it may take some time to get back to people pictures. I hope, for now, you enjoy the nature shots. They are mostly of the garden surrounding the house where I am staying until December. It's quiet here and beautiful. I hope what I see and share helps you feel the wonder and healing power of this place.
I hope you find the faith to start something new today.
Give a little more love.
Take a chance.
Take a picture of it!
I'm pulling for you.
