This is me...

This was sent in by a reader and was so great, I am posting here. Wait for it to download and enjoy.
My diamonds are here, in me.

And this is where I'll be ... somewhere off taking photos and living the good life.
I plan to learn Photoshop, Spanish, teach some photo/computer classes, get fit, locate a mate, and develop my awareness of Presence. Oh yea, get back in touch with my creative self.
Feel free to write me at
and do read back over the 380 posts I've written.
For those of you that subscribe, don't be startled by the number of messages you get at one time. I went back and published all the drafts I had left behind.

It all started with something to do during the rainy season back in 2006.....
This "Yo-Yo" blog isn't going anywhere, it's just taking a little sabatical.

That's a beautiful shot of you in the ocean and a lovely idea that you are going to release your creativity. I applaud you and wish you well on your adventure. I will be e-mailing you to keep in touch and will give you the heads-up as July approaches to see if we can get together when I am back in CR.
Pura Vida!

You got the right already to take your vacations, go ahead and do
that relaxation time and find for yourself a nice companionship, you
have a complete selection of information and pictures, they are
excellent, I mean good.

The reading is perfect for those that are hungry about knowing Costa
Rica and tropical paradise from far.
I think you should dedicate that beautiful sunset that you posted the
last to Oprah, named Oprah and send it to her directly, I think this
sunset is better than all others I have ever seen from Costa Rica. I'm

the Webmaster from and you don't have to
post this comment in your blog, if you don't want.
I have seen your blog many times and I noticed your love for
photography and Costa Rica, there have been many times I would like
some of your pictures for our website and I wonder if you let us use
some for our display and information about Costa rica, you don't have
to. Please after taking your time in vacations, come back and keep
doing the bloging, it is very fun for every body.

Thanks for all the well wishes. It's working... I was up before sunrise, on the beach taking photos. I'm sure I'll be back blogging before long. I'll miss y'all too much! Teri

Teri, What's going on ??? Sorry, I just had to say that. I have read your blog and your getting that crap from everyone. I will say one thing you have a fine set of readers. A collection of people you should be proud of. You have kept their attention for quite a while now. If it's a break you require, then so be it. I've been gone for a couple of days and get back to find that you are signing off. Kinda like you dropped a bomb. Your photo's as always are beautiful. I guess we'll just have to wait to see your new work. I must admit it feels like I'm being unplugged. My ray of hope, my shining light, which kept me going while I was freezing my ass off up here all winter is starting to grow dim. I know what the problem is. It's that damn Oprah, she has brainwashed the best blogger in the world and now we all have to pay for it. (just kidding you know)
Oprah has really got you thinking hasn't she. Teri your a strong woman, use your strength and wisdom and follow thru on some of your ideas. Most of us are very resourceful and creative, but we get caught up in the same old day to day routine. You were right, NOW is the time. I hope you don't mind me dropping you a line every now and then. A good joke is good for the soul. You have been a big help to me and I thank you for that. A friend indeed.

Pura Vida, T
