Simplicity: Let’s go fly a kite.

Let’s go fly a kite!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”One day I was visiting another farm near Villa Migelita and I hiked around their property. I took the most amazing photos. They were of a family having fun, doing what they do here in the Valle del Cauca. They fly kites in the summer when the breeze is just right, because families in Colombia don’t sit in front of a computer or a television. They do not have the money for that. They go out and do things with their families. This is a perfect photo depicting just that! I have lost my phone habit since I moved to Colombia. It is the best thing I have ever done. I still am able to run my business, and go on with my life. I don’t need to be connected to everyone all the time. This photo shows that. Go out and enjoy your world, wherever you may live. Look around and take in the beauty. Stop worrying about the little things, because they are not important. Take a breath, look around, and think I need to change from this circus of social media and go to a new place of minimalism. Even my clients who visit me at Villa Migelita enjoy  the simplicity of my farm and the way I have nature as the focus. Simplicity speaks volumes, and this picture is a perfect example of just that.



I am an American who moved to Colombia to find peace after the devastating loss of my daughter. I bought and renovated a Villa, am learning Spanish, and writing as catharsis. This blog will be like a book with chapters. Each blog will be about my life in Colombia and my adventures. I hope you will enjoy the many new discoveries I am making every day about myself and another culture.

  1. I agree, I am totally lost with the technology of today’s world…I try the best I can, but it is never ending. I am tired of it, and I have lost any edge I could have by living as I do. I live with the peace of the mountains. I don’t need to be incessantly entertained with worthless stuff. I look out my windows and see hummingbirds, that is the only thing that makes me happy; nature. Thank you for your comment. Flying kites is very big here in my area of Colombia.


    1. Thank you so much, I spend much of my day outside…. I hardly ever turn on the TV. I do use the computer to write and to promote my business, but it is not a constant thing for me. That is a blessing. I watch Netflix only these days. LOL I hate the news and I used to be a news junkie.

  2. I guess slowly technology is changing us all. humans have evolved over the years adapting, learning things. In few years we will forget all simple things, technology is changing our choices and behavior. we want to be in touch with everyone -from distance. That’s social networking!


    1. I actually love social networking, but not the constant phone in the hand thing. I hate that. People need to put their phones away when eating and with others. It is just the way it should be. I have become a social pariah with my lack of phone knowledge. LOL
