I have always had a strong passion in the things I believe to be right. In the past, I used to argue my side vigorously. Condemn the opposition, denounce the bystanders. I thought if I fought hard enough, people would finally understand. I never convinced a soul. Years later, my mania turned to zeal. The dedication I felt for these causes never waned, but my direction shifted. No longer did I seek… Read More

What is a necessity? What are the things you need? That answer many have changed a great deal in the last month. When everything is continuing as planned, it’s easy to continue habits of buy, trash, buy, forget, trash, eyes down, don’t talk, ignore, trash. But when there’s a disruption, autopilot shuts down, and we have to start to think. Before going to buy the next thing and see that, we stop,… Read More

1715 began the Age of Enlightenment for Europe. A time when reason, the scientific method, and progress reigned above all. A time for growth as more then a country or culture, but to grow as a species. Of course not every individual supported these ideas, the world would be very different today if they had. There will always be those who cling to any amount of power, regardless of the lives effected…. Read More

Long days,Spend alone. Sun rays,Rarely shown. Familiar faces,Only in dreams. Suffocating spaces,With the darkest themes. Up rise the sprouts,Strong in the storm. Never with doubts,Just minds to reform.

Not every bridge can stand reinforced like the golden gates.Some are small and rusted, with no chance for updates. But when you stand hungry at one end, seeing bounty on the other.You would never ask for another. Talk to the neighbor, call an old friend.Build a new bridge to nurture and tend.

He left the comforts of his life to search for what was missing. He wasn’t sure what that something was, but he felt confident he would know once he found it. Perhaps it was a greater sense of purpose, an exciting experience, money? In his journey, he walked along many paths; some were well worn by the soles of thousands of travelers, others were so scarcely tread upon, he was unsure if… Read More

Make your offering unto me,No fish, cigars, or gold. Give me you heart,Your body and mind. Shield my domain,From those who would take it. Defend my denizen,As they are you. Serve me with your life,And receive wealth incorporeal.

Hello friends, Bright and early (well dark and early, the sun rises around 05:50) I head to the bus station to catch my ride for Quepos. It’s about a three hour trip from which I completely planned to just catch an Uber to Manuel Antonio. Well let me tell you, while Uber may be popular enough around San José and other large cities, there aren’t any in Quepos. Normally not a problem,… Read More

Howdy Friends, Today was certainly a day. Started off fairly nondescript. After a horrible night’s sleep, had a fairly lazy morning before making my way down a few blocks to the museum district. I explored a little before finally getting into the National History museum (which didn’t open until 0830.) Costa Rica has a very interesting history up until the Spanish arrived. Once the European powers began their colonial conquest, Costa Rica… Read More

Hello friends! Not the most exciting day today, spent most of the day in transit from La Fortuna to San José. But I go to visit a little cacao museum before going on a small hike and getting in the bus. It was a really interesting museum and I got to drink a tea made from the cacao husks rather than the beans that was absolutely divine. If drink that every day… Read More
