Rollo Del Tomebamba VI

One of the activities I engage in everyday when possible is a walk along the Tomebamba River near my home in Cuenca, Ecuador. During this walking meditation my mind wonders along with that of the river. I love the sound of water. When the river is high, it blocks out the sounds of the city and my mind transcends to other worlds while my feet remain firmly in contact with the cobblestoned path. This path for a little while becomes a Yellow Brick Road into my own thoughts and life.

I am a blend of my experiences, the choices I make, and the chance which happens upon me. A friend’s father recently brought an investment property here in Cuenca so on my river walk the other day I decided to stop by an take a look. During the visit I felt a surge of energy from my heart.

“Come here,” she said.

I know that voice. She has led me on many journeys around this world and accompanies me through this existence. I looked at the building. Nothing impressive I thought until as if magic were afloat the traffic stopped and I heard the sound of the river behind me. I have no need to move. I know this property is beyond my housing budget. I pondered for a few moments …

“Think with heart,” she said.

It is doable. This was all decided before I even saw the inside a few days later. Like the building itself nothing impressive with the layout or fixtures, but the view of the park and the Rio Tomebamba across the street… the heart wants what the heart wants.
