Good morning my friends! It is easy to smile as I look out the windows of our cabin in San Luis Costa Rica. Sipping on a cup of mocha coffee, enjoying the view of Lake Arenal.
It is great time to be alive and living in paradise; Away from the maddening crowds. The turmoil in the United States is disturbing as people seem to turn animalistic and hateful. You can see the hate in their eyes and their body language. I look at the lake and fear melts away.
I have been quarantined for over two months. Corina was gone for three weeks and I generally stay at home because she supplies me with groceries until her arrival back to San Luis.
Corina cut her visit short because she could not live in the atmosphere of Las Vegas any more. Here in our secluded locked gate home she feels safe and secure. What does that say about the home of the not so free.
I take a deep breath as I realize how lucky I am. Free from illness except of aches and pains from injuries. At seventy-one years of age I realize life is fleeting. I have twenty or so more years to enjoy sunsets and sunrises; I wish to make the most of it as I enjoy beginning phase of the house building. Corina and I do not travel much lately because all of our monies are used to build our retirement home. I do not need to travel because I enjoy living in Costa Rica. The cost of living Makes my dollar stretch farther than in Las Vegas.
I enjoy writing and spend a lot of time in the early morning hours in the solitude of darkness as the world around me sleeps. Seven in the morning the construction crew of three men arrive and work until my capital runs out. Sometimes a month of work and sometimes two weeks if the weather permits. This year construction was sporadic because of the rain. Summer never came this year and work was slow. Now we have the Coronavirus holding up production.
Next month I will publish Brooks McLaughlin. It is the story of the beginnings of the hero the Chameleon. I ready for our contractor to arrive and hope to continue writing my novel The Captain. I have not produced any poetry for a while and I am beginning to hear the verses in my head. Until next time, Pura Vida!

Excerpt from The Chameleon Returns:
Revenge of the President
“Lucky is not surprised the President arrived safely at the Cherry Farm. A plan was put into place the day Marc and Thomas Intercepted the email from Cornel Saunders, Vice President of the United States; it showed the time and date of the Presidents departure. No one else was privy to that appointment. The email to Congressman Thomas Swanson did not say where the President and his wife was going, only when he was leaving for a day to relax.
Why was it important for the Congressman to know? Why did the Vice President send the email? The only explanation is a conspiracy to murder the President. How many other people are involved in the conspiracy? Why did the Vice President need to eliminate Lucky and Jack?
“The President had been uncomfortable with his administration. He felt uneasy with his people, especially with his close friend, Cornel Saunders, who seems to be fighting against the President’s agenda; Curtailing the power of the Drug Manufacturers in the United States of America. President Alexander wished to control the cost of prescription medicine. The President felt a profit of five billion dollars a quarter was ridiculous. The President wanted to stop what he called the extortion of the American people. He proposed a commission to regulate the price of prescriptions: drug manufactures must supply the cost of each medicine; transport, production, distribution,and maintenance of the company. Bill, PRC 2019, will bring together a commission to start regulating the Drug Industry. One month ago, the bill passed both houses to show support for the President. It was a strict mandate that the President introduces, and Congress surprised the President.
