Well, VC has returned from his trip to Costa Rica!! It was a trip of a lifetime. I think he would have loved to have stayed. What he liked most was the relaxed attitude - nothing was a problem...Here everyone is so tense. The Costa Ricans live by the slogan Pura Vida which means pure life.
The family he stayed with had an incredibly modest house, with a roof, but no ceilings. Just the basics. And yet he could sense they were much happier than folks living here. He loved the simplicity and I hope it is something that will stay with him for life.
Anyhoo, that's where the nirvana ended because as soon as he landed he mentioned that he had lost his camera. Not only did it contain 95% of his trip photos, but it was a camera I had to search on ebay to find. It is rare to find a used one for sale. So after 9 months it is gone :-( assuming the guide is unable to locate it at the butterfly center they visited before boarding the bus to the airport *fingers crossed*
I sincerely wish I was not the kind of person to be bothered by this. But instead of being all excited about his return I was sadly pre-occupied with the loss of the camera. Very silly I know.
I expressed my frustration a couple times at which point I was told to stop bringing it up...
Which got me to thinking, since when am I unable to express frustrations???? Everyone else seems to have free license to do so....
Granted I do tend to dwell on things...
and maybe people would like me to shut up at times. Many times.
But does that mean I lose the right to express my dismay???
