A Story:

There are  incredible storms in Costa Rica, but none match the one I’ve lately tended to inside. A little over two months ago, I left my burgeoning art career in Seattle to move to rural Costa Rica.  And my identity was lifted in the air and then…what?

The storm and dissonance are my path now.  I have relearned firsthand that the moments when identity is challenged are powerfully formative, if uncomfortable.

Almost nightly,  I watch lightning, matched by rainy sheets, occasional torrents and echoing thunder. And I breathe deep, bracing myself with who I am and want to be; an artist, a writer, a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur, strong, starting over and learning to enjoy the stormy ride.
