164. brays bayou

a small body of water

is enough to remind you

just how alive and connected we are

to everything else


152. golfo de nicoya

out at sea

thoughts process in different patterns

not the familiar, solid earth underneath your feet

deep waters meet the skies above

the horizon stretches out

beckoning your gaze beyond what the eye can hold when on land

you see far, yet you walk little

the contradicting situation grants you a moment

to sit still and contemplate the vastness

to remind oneself of the smallness of you

of the limitlessness of life

and the fact that you are part of it

thus, in fact, you are not small

you are endless

133. children

the little ones are the wisest of mentors

they teach through their actions, effortlessly wading through the waters of life

they care only for what matters: love

(and its countless manifestations, including laughing, smiling, playing, jumping, climbing, dancing, singing, hugging, kissing)

the older i grow, the bigger the child in me becomes

let us learn from the tiny masters

embrace the one within you, aching to come out and play!

carry out your day in service with humility, compassion, and all the powerful love and action your soul abounds with

and, most importantly,

have fun!

131. go forth

get on the boat and navigate

sometimes you sail

sometimes you fail

but every single time you live and learn on the trail

every moment of life is a precious gift

a chance to grow that is only there at this present moment, so live in it

be it

make it

live it

do it!

127. off the deep end

there is a time for everything in this life

most times are for being balanced, safe and sound, warm dry land underneath your feet

yet every now and then comes a time for diving on to the cold water, into the unknown

if you have an open heart and mind, these are the times that help you grow

to be fearless and lovefull

taking the leap, steadfast in your love, in the present moment, at one with all

being truth, light and joy

these times, when anyone else would just but see darkness and cold, are the moments when you illuminate and thus bring light into this world

119. playa sombrero

dawn yielding to sun rising over península de osa

at its emptiest, the low tide reveals the rock lines at the bottom of the ocean

waking with the sunrise, the slombering waves begin to swell

108. summer

sun warming our bodies, our minds, our hearts.

water cooling us down, inside and out.

friends to laugh and play with.

smiles and dancing.

eating and drinking.

digging your toes in the sand.

waving your hands in the wind.

life is beautiful.

104. the little things

kneeling at the edge where earth meets water, a child plays with sand and sea.

it is the simplest of things that can bring the greatest pleasures in life.

these times of quiet contemplation unconsciously bring you in communion with nature.

a silent dialogue ensues with the environment, the elements, the senses.

94. sailing

a perfect san francisco saturday on the water.

the rapacious winds of the bay found a meal billowing in the sails of our boat.

fog rolled in and out and around us like a soft blanket, carving pockets of sunlight that we welcomed with arms outstretched.

everyone was thrilled, excitement and peace and joy coursing through our veins as the sea sprayed in our faces.
