De San Jose a Playa Uvita 1.1-2.2013 Do you ever have those moments in life when you go to look at your phone at the exact same moment that your best friend calls you? Or you think about someone you haven’t thought of in weeks, just to run into them around the next corner? Or you add a new acquaintance on Facebook just to discover that they went to the same college in Australia as your old...
San Jose, Costa Rica 1.1.2013 Coming from the airport, I felt rather proud of myself for navigating the way to the bus station using my first attempts at Spanish, as well as paying the correct amount of colones to the bus driver. The bus was the far less costly option – amounting to around $1 USD versus a $30-40 USD cab ride. I half expected them to charge me an extra fare for the human-sized...
#etravelstheworld: FLL - SJO
I arrived at the airport by way of a cheery East-African taxi driver who assured me that “you have a very friendly personality and you will be just fine in Costa Rica.” With ALL my nervousness assuaged at this, I loaded up and clipped myself into my pack, and launched myself into the airport with all the confidence of a mountain goat. (Random analogy, I know.) Upon checking out the departures...
#etravelstheworld - prologue to an adventure
New Years Eve 2012 found me in an empty Fort Lauderdale sports bar attached to an airport motel on the first leg of my journey to Costa Rica. At the stroke of midnight I exchange whiskey shots with an old trucker and the two girls tending a near empty bar, and I was struck by the bizarreness of my present moment. Two months before this I had no idea that in the first hours of 2013 I would be...

Hawaii Saves E!: o hawai'i no ka aina mai kai →
hawaiisavese: As a kid I never even thought to dream of a Hawaiian getaway. The idea of it was so far away - so prohibitively expensive - so foreign to anything a girl growing up on a small farm in Jarrettsville, Maryland could comprehend, that even now I can barely wrap my head around the adventure I’m about… Follow my new microblog “Hawaii Saves E!” - documenting my...

The Organic Elite Surrenders to Monsanto: What... →
This is a classic struggle between maintaining a hard-line stance (no deregulation of Genetically Engineered [GE] crops, which the USDA refuses to consider) or modifying a position to the lesser-evil (conditional deregulation, which Whole Foods et. al. have decided to support). This seed could mean the contamination of organic and pure-crops. Seriously disconcerting and worth reading up about. ...

Love this note:
Erin, each challenge adds to the suspense, adds to the mystery, adds to the chaos, adds to the possibilities, adds to the romance, adds to the adventure, adds to the joy. And I say anything that adds to the joy should be embraced. Cool? The Universe
Note from the Universe:
Be there, Erin. Go there now and never leave. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Live your life from that mindset. Predicate your behavior on that reality, not the illusions that now surround you. Filter every thought, question, and answer from there. Let your focus shift and be born again - because dwelling from, not upon, the space you want to inherit is the fastest way to change...

theshotglassbandit: … And yet does it not all come again to the fact that it is a mans world? For if a man chooses to be promiscuous, he may still aesthetically turn up his nose to promiscuity. He may still demand a woman be faithful to him, to save him from his own lust. But women have lust too. Why should they be…
