about

Back when our kids were in grades 5 and 9, we had the good fortune of living in Costa Rica for six months. My wife and I were sick of winter and the current political situation in Canada, and our son had just suffered a series of concussions and life had become quite challenging for him. In general, it seemed a good time to get away and have an adventure as a family.

After settling into our rental home in the beach town of Playa Grande, we were getting our daughter registered into the local ex-pat school when we overheard a teacher crying in the office, telling the story of how her friend had just moved down to Costa Rica with her son to
start a new teaching job, and a new life. Sadly, after only a week in the country she died in a surfing accident.
The rest of the details are fictionalized, but the heart of the story is based on this tragic event. I find that the “circle of life” seems to be more present in countries like Costa Rica; that you become more
aware of the cycles of the natural world, such as the tides, the contrast of natural beauty with dangers like crocodiles and sharks, and the extremes of dry and rainy seasons (and the cycles of attrition and abundance that they provide).

lyrics

Porcelain Rose


Endless days of golden sunshine
Warm waves crashing on the sand
And the garden, always in bloom
Porcelain Rose and Bird of Paradise too

Sylvie came from California
Moved here with her only son
Bill left them years ago, she said it’s time to go
Where we can start again

Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last

Bought a house in Costa Rica
15 minutes from the beach
Their troubles out of reach, and it looked like they
Had finally got away

Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last

One day out at Avellanas
Rip-tide dragged them from the bay
A surfer saved the boy – that’s all that he could do
And Sylvie slipped away

Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last
Looks like the rain is coming down at last

Endless days of golden sunshine
Warm waves crashing on the sand
And the garden, always in bloom,
Porcelain Rose and Bird of Paradise too
