Woosh… Time warp. We’ve been living in the new space since Thanksgiving day, 2011. Settling in more and more. We’ve enjoyed cooking for friends, sharing the pool, decorating… all the things you do at “home” and even with all the crazy, frenetic, non-stop activity – sawing, banging, concrete mixers, sanders – power tool city – we manage to find the moments to embrace the present. The nice thing we can always count on is 5:00pm. No matter what – everything stops and the crew retreats to their “bodega” and the space is ours and quiet again. Swimming in our new pool, under the Costa Rican moon and stars is (one of) my favorite times of day. Here is where everything melts away, dissolving into the water that has been sun-warmed all day. Surrounded by the silhouette of the mountains, canopied by the starry sky, under the umbrella of the trees, I float in the weightlessness gazing up at the celestial ceiling, feeling cradled in the arms of the Great Mother, under the watchful eye of Father Sky. THIS is home… and we can’t wait to share it all with YOU!!
