Fam, I didn’t come to Costa Rica for endless adventures. Rather, I came for the tranquility that lives on the other side of the hustle rainbow, if you let it, and to reach my goal of acquiring even just a baby amount of proficiency around surfing. I am keeping things mellow, as a reminder of how to slow my heart rate, and to build muscle memory around staying focused and maintaining joy in times of uncertainty. I’m happy to report that I’ve already made an offering of thanks to the sea, in the form of an earring now decorating “la sirena” – sister to Gaia Gallactica*. FYI: I’ve got one more surf lesson tomorrow if anyone wants to make a last minute give – while taking advantage of a limited time-only collection of #3amblackpoetry. But keep in mind: There is no pressure at all. Instead, picture a circle of love and joy that mirrors double dutch; you can jump in if you want, watch from the side, or keep walking to the destination that is your own.

Sunshine, laughter, y la Pura Vida,
Reza Rites
