I have dreams.
Yesterday, I surfed small waves at a river mouth. A young tico kid plowed his way through every inch of the lineup. He paddle battled with granny: some he won and some he lost. I remember when I use to be aggressive for waves. I just don’t have that in me any more. However. I am glad that I once did, or I would have never gotten a wave.
Now I dream of Mexico. A place where there are endless waves and no crowds. It’s just a matter of time. At my age, I can’t put these things off, too long.
Tell the story ~ Tell the whole story ~ I’ll tell you the story.

A Penny for your Thoughts
Are they worth that much?
It’s dark outside. I have the white, cotton curtain pulled back, so I will wake up when the sky begins to lighten. I’m laying in my single bed, under a yellow mosquito net. I can hear the churning of the ocean water. The fan drones on ~ right to left-right to left.
I can check this excursion off of my bucket list. I have been Surfing with Amigas.
I came here with no expectations. I have surfed and played in the ocean, like every person should. I took photos and talked and talked.
I always wanted to do something like this.
It’s been a very uptown, coastal jungle, surf experience.
It’s been a bit emotional. Women talk about their families a lot. Their parents and their children and me being the oldest, my grandchildren.
I miss my family.
All of that and five dollars, will buy me a cup of coffee.

I read an article by a woman named Debbie Bayer. It’s funny that’s her name ~ take two, and call me in the morning….
After many years in corporate Sales and Marketing, Debbie worked for 9 years as a psychotherapist in facilities treating addiction, mood disorders and eating disorders. She has over 25 years experience working with 12 step communities.
Sales and Marketing………..hmm I’m sure her blog post is a big hit with the pharmaceutical Industry….
I prefer to “keep it simple”.
Drugs are Do Do
* And I, like Debbie Bayer, have some experience ~ there might have been some Sales but, there sure wasn’t any Marketing.
* The lines under my photo are from a Lynard Skynard song.
She said surfing is the “best”.
This woman is a student surfer, in her third class at Witches’s Rock Surf Camp, in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
If you’ve ever wanted to try it. Do!
Don’t allow hang ups of age, gender or size stop you.
You too can catch a wave and stand up.Then you get to paddle back out and do it again!
For some, like myself, this is key – on the path to happiness.
