Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

It's not Costa Rica.. but "Pura Vida!"

I must have been dreaming last night because
I could have sworn it was spring just a few days ago.
We had sunshine and 50 degree days and beautiful Blue Sky.
Mother Nature is not being serious is she? This is the other side of my back fence... it is no better there...
Well I guess it is only February.
Last year Clay & I were in Costa Rica on an Eco-tour. What an experience zipping through the rainforest, warm and carefree. The minute we stepped off the plane we learned a Costa Rican phrase of two words “Pura Vida”. It was used often among the people we met along our tour. They appeared to have no worries. They were content with their humble life. Food and family was their life. These two words say it all and mean many things, used in many contexts “Life is good, everything is fine and wonderful, as a salutation as and a goodbye. So today I will remember the words, and as I watch the snow fall, I can say “Pura Vida! and it is true Life is not better on the other side of my fence.
