Gratitude. I’m returning from a visit to Costa Rica with a grateful and open heart. It is a beautiful country, rich in natural resources and vibrant from the energy of the people. Walking in the tropical forest with only the sounds of nature and my breath gave me the opportunity to clear my mind, re-center and refocus.
Costa Rica’s Minister of Culture, Manuel Obregon, is also a musician and he captured the sounds, aromas and shapes of the rainforest by taking his piano to the rainforest and recording. Listening
and enjoying the sounds of the rainforest will always remind me of the beauty and simplicity of life and Costa Rica.

Happy Mother's Day. As I reflect on the day, I am reminded of many wonderful memories of my mother. She taught me to love, share and be kind to others. She would always say "a smile cost you nothing" or "it doesn't cost you anything to be nice to people; but it will cost you like hell if you're not". She would say "I may not be the best mother but I'm the only one you will ever have and you will miss me when I'm gone." On days like today, I know she was the best mother and I miss her more than I can express in words. And although she is not physically with me; her beautiful spirit is with me always. So today I smile and remember the time I shared with my mother.
