Wild Goose Chase – Who Knows What Tomorrow Will Bring

For those of you who give any credence to astrology I am quoting from Rob Brezsny’s www.freewillastrology.com on Leo’s Sept. 24th reading about wild goose chasing, ” the meandering pursuit of a tricky quarry that after many convoluted twists and turns results in success and generates a lot of educational fun along the way “. […]

A Good Day

Today, for me, was a good day, I guess. Long night, well rested, not up too early. I start each day with, at least, a cold pan of well water over my head. Wakes me up quickly. Pineapple and bananas for breakfast with coffee and homemade tarts: I wouldn’t say ‘sweet’ but after being dipped […]

Do You Think- Will It Rain Soon?

At sundown clouds are building into dark grey crowns on green mountains and everyone is hoping for rain. Like South Texas, this year has been a dry one. Last night, as I went on a nightly quick walk in darkness, I could see flashing over the mountains but not close enough to hear thunder, thus, […]

From Breaking Waves to Rolling Wind

After leaving behind Las Olas Grandes, a long bus ride yesterday back to Ocotal, arriving late but finding Mi Hotelito still open, thank goodness I was able to get a good night’s sleep. Morning was spent walking the streets of town in search of a few items I will need in the Campo, soap, hydrogen […]

Determined to Experience

Woke up this morning, which may sound easy but getting to sleep was quite a challenge! Independence parade, seemed like it went on forever. This in town stay might have as well located my bed on the main corner of it all. Loads of lightning offshore but not much of even a breeze here near […]

Efforts Towards Real Experiences

Decided to alter my eat, sleep, dream, exist towards some real new experiences. Chris would be disappointed in me if I did not take advantage of the local offerings. So, I embarked on a fishing trip this afternoon. Mostly Norwegians, a fellow Texan and various others. Dario was our captain. His mates and us adventures […]

Hanging Out

I’m hanging out in San Juan del Sur, south Nicaragua, Pacific side. Good size town, plenty of anything one needs or might want. Good food, great coffee, enough going on late to get your fill of fun (or find trouble!). I just skim the surface. These waters run deep and much goes on that I […]

Beautiful Place

There are many wonderful things here. This place and people have much but are poor in other things. They live with a beautiful “Mother Earth” and are rich in many things because of it….and happy too. That you cannot say about many people in the developed world poor or rich. But certainly they are lacking […]

Rain In My Window

These mountains is where fresh air is made. I think it must be so. To see, as I walk down roads of red dirt, dark gray menacing clouds sneak over verdant mountains, wind racing down out of nowhere, makes me glad I am close to the campo. But to miss those moments just before a […]


Well I gave my ‘noticia’. Yes, I feel a bit of a no good jerk. But, I will get over it. I think David understood, somewhat. I hope so. I don’t know exactly what day I will be moving on but probably this week. I have already ‘discussed’ (meaning, I think they understood pretty well) […]

Need An Escape

To Joy: I wrote this last night. I feel better this morning, with a better attitude. I always try to remember your words about higher thoughts and things are better immediately. I love you let me know how it goes with you Hola, You take your chances, go the distance and pull out when it […]

Teach Us How To Live

After ‘talking’ with you Joy I kept on the net looking for ideas for securing panels from thieves. I am in Ocotol again to work on the net. Theft of panels seems to be a problem that has been born from the value and ease of stealing them. This is not a third world problem […]

Long Days and Epic Nights

(written last night) Nights in El Campo de Nicaragua are certainly different. Families jabber outside my room much too fast for me to feel comfortable to join in. (hopefully in time) I feel an outsider made to feel at home. I could not ask for more. Dinner was fried plantains, a corn tortilla, beans and […]

Feeling Free

Joy to Steve: I am enjoying where I am and the feeling of freedom to be anywhere and choose where that is. I hope you are too. I definitely wouldn’t choose Nicaragua. It’s just not my thing to be so primitive if I don’t have to be. I wrote Robbie a birthday note and said […]
