I feel the need for reflection. IN my Book: Poems From Costa Rica I wrote about the peace I find in Costa Rica. Especially in Nuevo Arenal, where life seems to go at a slower pace. Where people are genuine, caring and loving people. Families where mom or dad walk the kids to school. Play soccer together and eat together. Go to church and work. Family life takes front and center.Primery number one.

In the states , there are latch key kids. Parents to busy to pay attention. Last time I was in Las Vegas NV there was four deaths on my first evening home. Everyday there is death in Las Vegas. I shudder everytime I need to go back. Hence, I do not go. I do not remember the last time I heard about a mortality crime in Guanacaste Province.

How about you, have you heard of serious crime where you live? If so visit Costa Rica for a month or so and it will relax you and help you forget the evil in the world. If not read my new book Poems From Costa Rica. Timothy M Nugent. Ebook is only $3.99.

Hidden Away

I am hidden away from the fray
Deep in the rainforest faraway
No news to make me dismayed
Disgruntled or ashamed

Enjoying the fresh air
Enjoying the life style of devil may care
Absent is the need to
Relaxing a must do

I am among friendly faces
In simpler times and places
Few distraction to annoy
Nature to enjoy

I awake to singing birds
Low clouds and swaying ferns
Wild breezes that keep me cool
Gecko’s chirping their tune

Fall asleep to croaking frogs
Winds like sirens through the fog
Rains that pound the metal roof
Then silence, it’ a hoot!

Few trucks, cars or loud noises
No blasting radios to annoy
Welcome to Lake Arenal and the Living Forest
“Pura Vida” is the chorus”
The Good Life
