You don’t have to be a star, baby.

For the last few days I have been feeling emotionally vulnerable and physically unwell. So, today, I did not feel The POWER while riding.  I felt insecure. But, I went out in any case and chose an easy route. And, yes, once again, I enjoyed myself. 🙂 I suppose that when you love a route, you love that route each time, freshly.


I was so at peace.  That is the therapy I needed. 🙂

I realized I need to be OK with how I am, and how I am when I ride. I may not be such a good rider, but that is OK. I don’t need to be star to be in my show. 🙂 I am willing to learn new things and grow as a rider. That is what is most important.

If I feel vulnerable and insecure, that’s OK. I just take it easy. If I’ve “got the power,” then I can enjoy that to the fullest. However I am is OK. 🙂

I hit rain in Santa Barbara de Heredia, but it was a beautiful morning otherwise. The best part of the ride was a hawk that flew in front of me along the curves of the road for while. I enjoyed his company.

Route: Puriscal/Orotina/Atenas — same ol’, same ol’, yet still lovely! Even the rides I take don’t always have to be spectacular! Nice and easy is nice and easy. Perfect!


Enjoy your day.

Song: You don’t have to be a star, baby. 🙂

Riding in Costa Rica: Feel the Beauty

I have seen red and yellow versions of this Platanillo flower, but never orange. I gathered some seeds. 🙂 (I also want seeds of the yellow version.)
