Message from COSTA RICA from Joshua Peace Seeker
I hope all is well with you and your families. I have a few minutes in town were I can get online and I excited to share with you. We have come a long way at our farm in a short time. We have finished one house and we are starting to set up our organic gardens now. A LOT OF WORK. But it is very rewarding. The hardest part of this change is being far from so many loved ones. However we are making great friends with our whole new community here. I am learning Spanish quickly. My daughter is doing wonderful with this culture. She is rapidly learning Spanish.
We have planted over 300 trees in our re-foresting and carbon trading program. As people come to visit, we are having the best connections with everyone one of them.We are sowing the seeds of peace on a deep level with people. Without the noise of the U.S.A. for a few days people can really think.
Three LESSONS LEARNED SO FAR...
1. One must feel the world. Seeing it on TV or reading about other cultures is not enough.
2. Build something! From a desk to a garden, it is very rewarding to feel even a little self sufficient in todays world.
3. We are connected. All peoples are similar when you try to communicate on a heart level.
...almost forgot, there is a fourth lession, roosters are loud, EARLY!
