This blog post is dedicated on behalf of two of our Dear Friends who live along the coast of El Pacifico. No, not a cervesa, an OCEAN! These two argonauts have quite a story unto themselves. They've "been there and done that" more so than almost any other people we know, hither OR yon. No matter where they go, no matter where they are and no matter how they got there, they are humble devotees of "living in The Present." In fact, they themselves are one nice present, all wrapped up in smiles and effervescent positive energy.
(We must pause here for a note. We actually spelled effervescent correctly and didn't need to use the spell checker to make it right. WOW! That gives us hope that some day we might be able to spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious without the aid of artificial aids!)
OK, back to the topic--anyway, back in 2003 or maybe it was 2002, this couple took a big gamble and gave up all the underpinnings of the security that they knew at the time and moved to an entirely different life in a really tough place to make a living--a place where untold thousands of people wash ashore and fail to "stick" and then wash away with nary a trace. They stuck. They stuck through thick and thin and they made that tough coastal place "work" for them. Not only are they making a living there but they are thriving and their spirits are alive and well and radiate joy to all those they know.
We are very lucky to count them as readers of this blog. Once in awhile, we actually get a comment from them. Since last night, we rec'd a great comment from Deano himself. (Maybe someday Lora will chime in, too, eh?) Normally, I'd ask you to find the little comment thing someplace below and click to read it. Not today.
I am copying Deano's comment here as part of this blog post. Thanks, Deano, you made my day!
Here is the comment:
"Freedom, that's what its all about. Taking steps that enrich our lives and the world around us. Thank you for putting it so well. Just last night I was dreaming what it would take to have a true freedom world wide and I realized that there are so many little parts we must all play to bring peace to our hearts, minds, and souls. It's not so easy to let go, step forward and see the beauty of the sunrise from a yet unknown campsite or hot spring--but we will try our best to have fun on the way--on a new path--FREE! Love you allways, Deano"
