I'm Back!

I didn't know... but actually I have a couple of fans! ;-)

Now that it seems that I'm going to have a little more time... just a little... lets don't get to excited about it... I can be back on my "bloggers life".

It was a time when I used to write everyday nearly, with the little things of life that happened to me... guess what... I went back on facebook, and that was that... facebook... you are bad, badddd...

I still of facebook, but actually to get to write about my little adventures is way more fun!

So here I am.
Where: In Ibiza.

I was thinking about starting again on my blog Bridget Jones style

25 of August
Number of alcohol unit consume 0 (no need...yet), number of proper lunch eaten 0 (no time yet), number of sunrises seen: all of them, number of sunset seen,  all of them, jobs 3 maybe 4 I don't know anymore, number of hours working 3598 hours per day, number of people living in my house today 5 + dog + Cat... but to be honest I'm not sure because I'm never here...

And the list could go on and on and on...


So here it is for now... I'm back.
I just leave you here with this amazing text... enjoy, be happy... peace and love


The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for Love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your Moon…
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with Wildness!
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own Soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

So...

... Christmas is nearly here... Christmas and of course... New year... Leaving behind 2013.. and entering 2014...

I'm not really sure I'm able to process all the things that have happened to me this year.
I'm not even sure I can remember it all.

I was in the same island last year that I am this year.
That's a start... but my life was a little bit different then.

I love Xmas time. And the last Xmas I can remember is 4 xmas ago.
When my niece was a baby... when I managed to spend it with my loved ones.

Now I'm here in Lanta, a little far from Family and friends. Of course I have amazing friends here... but... I miss so many people right now...

I sent some xmas card, because I do that every year and hopefully they make it for Easter!

Where to start:

My Family, you all know who you are... so that's easy...
Thank you for your amazing support throughout this year. It was a challenge for me, and you guys were there from start to finish.
I'm doing everything that is in my hand to change a little my way of life and get closer to you guys... more accessible. I don't want to miss out on you... so Ibiza it is...
I wish you an amazing xmas, I can believe that I'm missing the 25 with all of you, food, guitars, singing, laughing but I'm looking forward to a skype session with all of you!
I wish you all an amazing 2014, full of happiness!

Doudou, you are my family, but I have a special message to tell you: My life will be so much more empty if I didn't know you!
You always look for sunshine, but you are THE sunshine!
Bright and warm!
Thank you for an amazing emotional year! see you in 2014 for more sun, trips, peace and love! I love you

Karlitos Brown (and my hairy boys), what can I say, that you don't know...
As well, you are up there, where it says FAMILY.
As well as an incredible friend.
Thank you to be there.
I wish you all the best in your new adventures, I know... good things will blow your side, because they have already done.
I wish you and Doris an amazing 2014, and can't wait to see you both soon in Ibiza. Lots of love!

Bernard, Joan and Frank, my Ibicencan Family, I'm so blessed you guys are part of my life.
I can see many things happening together, many trips (Joan, Bali is ON!), many dives and many glasses of wine!
I love you all very much, thank you as well to be exactly the way you guys are.

My Somni Blau/Ibiza Family: Thank you for another incredible year, can't wait to be there in April and rock it!
Thank you to all of you to be such helpful happy people!
The crew at MP2, at the Sushi (specially you Diana, I love you!), the beautiful people crew, with of course special affection for Pepe (how can you be so RANCIO ;-)) and Agus, to have become somebody special in my life... that finally understand that I'm a free soul, to protect, not to possess... Thank you to be there!
Merry xmas guys and very happy new year full of love and Happiness!

Kontiki team, I wish you all an amazing 2014, thank you to welcome me with open arms, to take care of me, to make sure I am ok every day... and to never asked too many questions... to just be there for me.
You guys are the warmest coolest people in the world (a little too emotional for my taste, but I love you!).

There is so many more people I will love to mention.
But right here, right now... this are the ones that have helped me through a very stormy 2013... sea is getting calmer?? I'm not sure... but for sure I'm learning to sail... and I realised... I'm not alone on my boat!

Dear all, Merry Xmas, and all my best wishes for 2014!

Peace and Love

Isa

Day off and breakfast


mmmmmmmmmm

How nice...

To wake up later, stretch in the bed and come to the dive centre for a staff meeting at 9h30.

I already had a coffee at home... but this... this is REAL





I'm so glad Quinn from the dive centre Go Dive, opened this little place on the river. it's beautiful... and the coffee is great... and they have:


For people to just come and play... so cool, so chill...

So now going home in a minute, not very inspired today about writing... I just want to sink my  bare feet in the sand and feel the sun burning my back.

I just want to feel life, to feel alive.

Tomorrow it will be a new day in the office, but not in my little hippy office that I have at Kontiki:


That is probably runing my boss crazy (but he doesn't say anything... just smiles and walk away like he hasn't seen anything), but I'm going to my real office... to make some bubbles underwater... to feel free... I can't wait!

Anyway, moving on... going home...

peace and love, lovely people!

it's nice...

... when you get a request... because somebody is missing to read you on your blog.
Sorry, I have been crazy busy building castles in the sky, without permission.

I saw that I didn't write anything for such a long time... such a long long time.
I guess facebook, wapp take over our lives... and actually that's shit.

The think, to be honest, I like to write on the blog when everything is fine... and in my private "world" when my life turn to shit... so... i have been in my world for most of the summer, just posting happy moments, because life is never shit... all of it!

Summer in Ibiza finished full of changes... i guess... good changes for all of us.
They say that is "fall" time, winds turn... and is very true, because every "fall" I go somewhere different...

So now, I'm back here:




Where my life started 8 years ago... and 8 years later, it's starting again.
A new cycle i guess.
New cycles are good... I always thought that my life was changing every 6 months... but actually it's every 8 years! See, mum and dad, I'm not such an unstable person... I can put "kind of" roots for 8 years! How cool is that!
I can't even believe it! ;-)

We will talk about it in 8 years time...

So yes... i'm on Lanta.
That until now, was the second island of my heart.
Now is just a nice island... things change... people... not sure yet...

I miss Ibiza, my home, my hairy ones... the light, the people, the soul and freedom of the white island.

To be fair... I'm free here too... super free... except teaching the IDC... then I'm all Matilda's.





My girl in her workshops.

Anyway, I will try to come here more often and write more things... maybe get more private about my life and my feelings... or maybe not... sometimes I just enjoy my mysterious ways to deal with life (even mysterious for me!).

Miss you all

Peace and love from very rainy Lanta

Just me

oh nooooooo

....Facebook is taking over!
I don't like that at all... but yes, I have to say, Facebook is quicker... you post a pic directly from your phone... make a stupid comment... and that's it, everyone knows that you are alive!

Things have been really good lately.
October came slowly after a grey September... but came full of sun, warmth, flat clear sea and bubbles ;-)

October can be sometimes a little sad too.
You say good bye to some friends (PHIL come back immediately! you playing hard you little goat!) and Jon and Marie, I see you soon!!!, some places start to close... but in the oder hand, you have time to play, and guess what, this island is a play ground!

The beaches are empty, the dive sites are ours... what else can you ask for??

I fell in love with Ibiza a long time ago... but every year, I get more hooked up...
I love the sun rises, the sun sets, the country side and the sea, the calm and the party, the long warm summer days...
Everything!

here are some pictures...
