Travel Log: Arenal

“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” ― Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho

This is a shot of the volcano hiding in the fog, near Arenal Costa Rica.  I took this on a trip in 2010 while traveling with a man with who I was in a relationship with at the time.  It would become one of my biggest life failures, and one of my greatest lessons to date.  I do not regret the relationship, I just regret that I didn’t listen to that little voice of intuition saying to me, “get out, get out,” sooner.

What I learned is that when she does speak, she is usually quiet and generally wise.  Now, when she comes a-callin’, I do not ignore her small, but a mighty voice, anymore….for when I do, there’s are the times in life I seem to most often regret the most.
