Our ocean view.

For any of you out there who know us, you know this has been on our horizon for a looong time! Well, the time IS NOW. In the past year, we have sold our house (where we have lived for the past 15 years!), purchased land in Costa Rica and are currently finalizing the plans for our new home and retreat space. Am I dreaming…? Coz sometimes, I think, PLEEZE let me sleep, let me keep dreaming of this paradise, this place of beauty, peace, nature, ocean, sky, trees where we are planning on making our home… not that it’s ALL peace and perfection, but the most potent risks reap the greatest rewards. And, to that I say: Let’s GO…! NOT that I flippantly toss aside our “world as we know it” and all the people who live here that we love, but rather, YES, I say, Yes to embracing change, newness, challenge. So far, as this process unfolds (and it is JUST the beginning), I must say, my adopted perspective has been truly, to become the “watcher”. And, what I am watching is two people who have been married for over 23 years, step outside of their “predictable” roles and begin to work within a new paradigm, one that establishes a whole new set of boundaries. This alone, fascinates me. I watch as old issues re-surface and then become immediately squelched with the realization of “no, no… no time, no room for that anymore”, we’re on to bigger and more important things now. (Oh, to have had this perspective 20 years ago)!

But, that is only ONE of many aspects of this observation…

Our sunset view.

    Ahh, the challenge of it all, stepping into another world with a beauty of its own, to change that beauty into a beauty with a purpose to help sooth the soul, to welcome all to see and feel. Now that is a challenge of the utmost, to create.
    Live it, enjoy.
