Good morning! Are you finding that life just comes in waves right now? With other things stripped away, you’re more sensitive to the highs and lows within your own (monkey) mind?
I hope this Monday morning brings you some degree of perkiness. Even if it’s fully caffeine-induced. Even if it’s slightly maniacal. Even if it’s very much fleeting, which it will almost certainly be. Behind this little face wait the anxious hummingbird wings, the gentle sloth, the powerful outraged howler, the beauty and cruelty of the world. During these weeks we are meeting them all, over and over again.
I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world. Sign up (top right of this page) to receive a little dose of inspiration every weekday in your mailbox; tell a friend; check out past posts; and please connect with me on Instagram or Facebook! If you want to learn more about how to support Costa Rica during the crisis, visit my COVID-19 section, updated regularly – or for ways to enjoy Costa Rica from afar, visit Virtual Costa Rica.
