|Lake Arenal, Costa Rica|
I am attending a writing retreat in Costa Rica at a resort on Lake Arenal. It is lush and green and beautiful. You can see the volcano tickled by clouds in the distance. I am sitting outside my cabin when I hear a noise coming from the distance. I look up and I see one hundred children, around eight years of age, wearing bathing suits and carrying bath towels moving towards the water.
They are singing:
Cantemos del Cristo
El solo Cristo
El solotario Cristo
Let's sing of the Christ
The only Christ
The lonely Christ
With that, these beautiful children drop their towels, run towards the lake and joyously jump in.
I wake alone, in isolation still, but with a feeling of peace.
My fever has broken.
Today is a good day to be reborn.
