when we crave change

June 17, 2010

Dear blog,

I missed you. Sorry for being away for so long. I won´t bore you with lame excuses for my absence, but part of it does have exciting news. Another move, more change… Which means beautiful new places will be subjects for future posts.

You see, things weren´t going so well on that last job. Rio? Oh no, Rio was fine. No, Rio is amazing. Still is. Nope, it didn´t get old. Although I have to say I was sold on Florianópolis.

Floripa, as it is kindly nicknamed is a city in the south of Brazil, in the state of Santa Catarina. The island is becoming a hot summer destination with good surf points, 42 amazing beaches, great nightlife, very good restaurants and nice people.

There are moments in life in which we feel a deep need for change. We crave something different, for something new. Like moving around furniture, getting rid of some of our belongings, get a new haircut, try that cooking class you´ve always wanted, go for a run in the morning, learn a new language, walk on the other side of the street or even bike to work, travel, breathe new air.

In the midst of change we also need a safe place inside us that no matter what, is peaceful and untouchable. It balances out the discomfort of change until we create a new and thicker comfort zone.

So… I got a haircut, got rid of old clothes, packed my bags and bought a one way ticket Rio-Florianópolis, with a few stops in between, one of them being Lençóis in northeastern Brazil. Next post is about the green Grand Canyon of my state: Bahia.
