Sea This

I arrived down under ( Brazilian ) on a beautiful sunny day

Here I am in Recife, state of Pernambuco, the Brazilian Caribbean. Cristal clear waters, stunningly beautiful white sand beaches with warm waters and tide pools.

It is a paradise indeed.

However, is a paradise still a paradise if you fail to have inner peace? You know it isn’t. I am not saying that I lack inner peace. I mean, I am not a Sanyasi or a yogui who masters the art of deep meditation and concentration. Far from that. I have my moments of anxiety and distress and no matter how gorgeous a beach may be: when they kick in, I will not be OK.

For the time being, however, I am OK. So a white sand beach with warm clean waters always helps. Also with the help of Fábio Melo :)

I am in my 3rd year of my PhD in Anthropology and I am about to begin my fieldwork.

My motivation has melted away and is near zero now. I have no passion, no stamina or anything like that to begin my ethnography and interviewing people. I had an interest…

Perhaps my life change began when I was barred to enter Singapore and had to be sent back the the Phillipines because this was where I was flying from.

I was barred because I had no return ticket, no money and no plans.

I did not have any of these things when I left Vancouver but the immigration in the Philippines ( my first stop) was super nice to me.

Rich countries lack rich souls.

In my return to Manilla I was placed at a restricted area at the airport for two days waiting for a plane back to Canada since this was the only place I could go from there according to some international immigration law.

I recorded a short video with a beautiful song sung by Billy Bragg.

Life is beautiful.

I became a Psychologist to understand the mind but then I realized there were more to life than books. Then, I salied off to discover the world and its oceans.
