It only takes about 3 weeks to get comfortable in a new space. By the time I left VidaAsana I was super comfortable! My beautiful big room and wall of window that opened out to the lush green outside of Costa Rica was a pleasure to wake up in everyday. I had planned to leave a week earlier but I got sick, so nursed myself with ginger garlic onion and pepper and recovered super quick. Whilst I was getting better, I had a new vision with my body painting art- somewhat of an epiphany! And the Surfboard Series began to manifest in my mind. Synchronistic happenings flood our lives if we are willing to acknowledge them as more than coincidences.. and having wanted to make the journey with a sister, a friend from Israel spontaneously arrived in town wanting to go to the same place as me and voila, another instant manifestation. The ride was awesome, taking my little home on wheels on the ferry, cruising across the bay to the peninsula side. It was another hour drive to Santa Teresa, and arriving in this little slice of paradise has been action packed. Only a few days in and I have done a fire show, a live painting show, the first body painting piece for the surfboard series, new collaborations set in place for Indigo Yoga Retreat in Mal Pais where I will be staying for the next three days. My intention is to create 3 more body painting pieces before I leave, two yoga, one surfboard... and I will definitely get ON a surfboard before I leave here!!! Leaving for Guatemala in a week to perform and present at Cosmic Convergence festival. Its busy times. All my love, x
