It feels very fitting to begin this new site with a major life transition. Three days ago, Arturo and I arrived at the place we will call home for the next three months. After weeks of planning, packing and existing in a state somewhere between anticipation and denial, we have arrived in Esterillos Oeste, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Estamos aqui (we are here).
And with just a quick 180 degree turn, here is the magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean.
It may not be much of a stretch to understand why we’re here. These photos don’t do justice to the beauty of this place, nor the tropical summer weather I can hardly fathom after years in temperate, but rarely hot, San Francisco. But beyond that, for me, this is an extraordinary opportunity to open my life, my heart and my belly to new people, new tastes and smells, new sounds and steps, and new ways of being. Through these experiences I hope to bring to the surface the best parts of myself – loving, healthy and happy.
I already have many stories and photos to share, and I invite you to follow me on this journey. Hasta luego!
