Surfing in Nayarit!

Life has been good here
for my husband Frank
He is younger, healthier,
getting the rest he has needed for years
surfing to his heart’s content
spending time with his wife and children
Reading, writing,
practicing Capoiera, playing the drums and guitar,
making friendships and connections
not accessible to us
in our previous Southern California
rat-race life…
Learning Spanish,
communicating with the locals
laughing, smiling
bbqing on our terraza,
drinking ice-cold Pacifico’s
and sipping on fine mezcal
only to wake up
and do it all again…

Piñata time at our Twins’ 9th Birthday Party!

He is happy
He is renewed
He is living,                      
the prime of his life
Frank worked so hard for this dream,
he ‘put in his time’
sacrificed himself in more ways than one as a career firefighter
That chapter is done 
and a new begins…
