About That Tropical Spa Retreat…….

Those who know me or have been “following” me for years are also aware of my pursuit of a Tropical Spa Retreat. It’s concept and details were “downloaded” to me years ago (maybe 15) while still living in California. Since that time I have contacted thousands of people, researched extensively, traveled to many countries, considered numerous offers/possibilities and, so far, still not manifested this tropical sanctuary.

Obviously, we have many possible futures. Every action we take,…

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

And all that is gold does not glitter! Sit back and relax while I regale you with the ongoing tale of a Gypsy Wanderer from an intimate perspective.

Most people living “normal” lives cannot fathom the life I have been living since 2009. Personally, I don’t know how many years previous were preparing me for such either – perhaps since birth. Normal people, in this context, are those who subscribe to beliefs such as: You have to work hard at a job to have the things you want. Hard work…

Warm Holidays

One of the memorable gifts I am infinitely grateful for this season is warmth! 80some degree days? Oh yeah! It makes such a tremendous difference in my life when I am in a climate that supports and revitalizes me. At the same time, it thrills me to hear about others enjoying their snowy and more “winter appropriate” weather. Different strokes for different folks or we’d all be crowded in the exact same place at the same time. I wish for everyone to have the lives of their brightest desires…

Initially I was going to start by saying I was throwing down the gauntlet as those were the first words that came to my mind. But the challenge I want to put out isn’t adversarial but part of my ongoing quest. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?! What would you do if you had an unstoppable drive to find a place you have a detailed image of in your mind but don’t know where on earth it is? Imagine you have to find this without money…but you do have internet access. If your response in deeper than a general…

WORKAWAY - Not So Ethical?

Since I have recommended many times in the past to an unknown number of people, I feel it appropriate to follow up. Knowing what I now know about the organization, I recant my recommendations and provide disclosure of disappointing practices.


A reminder to my ever faithful family and my new readers – as I know I am welcoming a few here…..I did not join workaway due to wanderlust or a passion for travel. It was to assist…

Hola And Adios

Hola And Adios

One of the most challenging aspects about my current chosen lifestyle is saying good-bye. Good-bye to people, places, experiences…. Definitely an effective way of learning detachment though.

Again I am at a loss for adequate words to express how incredibly grateful I am for the months I was privileged to serve a dear Soul Sister. It was one of those situations clearly “meant to be” as my life changed on a dime in a direction neither of us anticipated before we…

The Gift of Pura Vida

A view of the endless Pacific in one direction and the ever changing mysterious cloud forest in another, our delightful Costa Rica property sprawled almost an acre. Back in 2004, my former husband and I purchased this tropical paradise – a mere 10 minute drive to the beach. Excitement abounded as well as visions of our dream home we would build there. Shortly thereafter a friend, who bought around the same time as we did, was having marital issues making owning real estate in Costa Rica no…

ANASTASIA and Amazon

While English is the language I grew up with, clear human communication has always been a challenge for me. The meanings of the words do not represent fully what I desire to express. For many people too, the very same word will conjure up a plethora of different meanings. This was one reason I generally did much better one on one Personal Wellness Coaching than presenting to or teaching a group. I got a better sense of what the words meant to each individual and was able to put them together…

Putting It Out To The Universe

“God helps those who help themselves.” In keeping with this profound statement, I am putting my request out to the Universe as I look for direction regarding the next chapter of my journey.

I thought I was going to be blogging this month about an exciting development I am looking forward to sharing with you. However, I am waiting until all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted. Apparently some involved in this endeavor are on “island time”. Maybe next month.

As for GOD , you can blame and justify too yourself about Gods impact or lack of impact but it comes back to individually collectively owning our thoughts. The only blame and justify our thought, words and actions excuse is the operating system we plan and reflect with, namely the irregular and arbitrary 28,29,30,31 4 year leap year and mary had a little lamb. The Gregorian nasty labels for marking time ie mon,tue,jan,feb payday weekend xmas halloween etc force our thoughts to follow…

Magic and Miracles

As per Merriam-Webster:

*Magic - a power that allows people (such as witches and wizards) to do impossible things by saying special words or performing special actions

*Miracle - an unusual or wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.” ~ a favorite quote of mine attributed to my friend, Albert Einstein. The way I see it is that…
