Sometimes I have an urge to write my thoughts, share what I'm learning, and document life as I see it....even if nobody ever reads it. 

The last time I posted on this blog was about two years ago! At that time, I had a few dozen followers.

It started in 2008, just after I finished a my certification process to be a life coach. I focused on life issues, and I hoped it would be an inspiration to others to live their lives BIG! That is still my passion. But while blogging consistently for four years, other random themes and topics began to appear, like vacation photos, art projects, spiritual revelation, and book reviews. 

I have so many interests, it's hard to stay focused on just one for this blog. Some people maintain more than one blog for this very reason. For me, that would be cray-cray. And anyway, why can't I put it all in one? Who's making up the rules here? I don't often follow rules, anyway. 

So, my goal is to live a life that is inspirational. Then, anything and everything I have to post will be a dose of goodness for all who read it. 

Also, I would love to have readers send me their personal questions about their life struggles. That way, we all get something good out of it: I have interesting content, and you get free life coaching. (I'll work on how to do that and get back to you.)

ArtFest 2012

I recently returned from Port Townsend, Washington, where I attended Art Fest for my second time. I made new art and new friends, and what is better than that?

Here are some of the pieces I made:

I did this piece in Sunny Carvahlo's class "Story Pieces."

These two were done in Erin Faith Allen's Class "Soul Portrait Empowerment."

This pitiful looking thing was done in Michelle Allen's class "Dolls and Dudes."

Sayulita: Day 6

Our rental golf cart!

Pop and I rode on the back!

Later the girls took a ride.

I surfed for a while. Caught some bigger waves. Got beat up. Had fun anyway.

Sayulita: Day 5

We had breakfast at a coffee/pastry shop.

What a funky little town! Happy Valentine's Day!

Get a load of the size of this margarita!
Jamie and I just hooted laughing when they brought it out!
Are you kidding? You could swim in it!

Then we met Pasquala and her daughter Alicia and son and baby (whose names I couldn't get with the language barrier and all). We bought many of her folk animals she makes from burlap and felt. We gave her about $1500 pesos, which will probably feed her family for a month. They were so sweet.

And look....I'M TALL!

This family really had to tunes going!

I really love this place.

Sayulita: Day 4

Today is the day I have decided to give surfing a try.
My instructor is an adorable 17-year-old named Luar.

First try...

This is the life.
A girl just can't help it that her drawers come down when she's surfing!
I'll remember to wear shorts tomorrow!

Meanwhile, back at Casa del Gallo...

The whole gang!

We learned to salsa and danced to a 7-piece Cuban band at Don Pedro's! SO FUN!
