Phoenix Rising

dscn0074.jpgPhoenix Rising~ Bon Jour, mes Amis!

I feel like the Phoenix rising from the ashes today as I re-begin my writing as your peripatetic reporter/philosopher/commentator in this beau monde of ours. Inspiration has arrived in the form of several beautiful women who are working to make a difference and I want to join their ranks and learn how to navigate this brave, noveau monde of internet musings, et j’espere to entertain and shake you up un peu.

La soleil is shining ici, the air feels clean et fraiche, and toute est magnifique dans ma vie parce que j’ai mon amour, mes amis, ma famille, et ma sante, et vous, cher readers–merci a Dieu. Let’s begin notre aventure ensemble maintenant et let life, love et plaisir dans les choses simples y belles be our guiding course~

A bientot jusque demain~

Kees, kees,

Costa Rica: The Ultimate Guide – Articles | Travel + Leisure.

If you desire to be completely swept up in Nature within a pristine environment, visit the beautiful country of Costa Rica (trans. from Spanish, “Rich Coast”) as I did in 2002 and 2003, and find yourself in the midst of lush greenery, gorgeous beaches, simple pleasures, unusual animal life, good people , tasty food, natural phenomenon, splendid diversity of all kinds, and relatively few complexities.  One of my favorite memories is when I drove through a Cloud Forest on the way the Arenal Volcano and once there, enjoyed a mineral soak at an open air Spa at the foot of the volcano.

This is the place to go when you want to “Escape from It All” and live the simple life, yet be able to experience the adventures of a lifetime when you take yourself easily to the most diversified Eco~System in the world (or nearly).  The national motto of Costa Rica is “Pura Vida”~the Pure Life~and that says it all!
