San Jose del Cabo - A place of Peace



Since planting myself in San Jose del Cabo for a few weeks writing the backstory for the next book in the Beyond the Veil of Illusion series, I find myself more in the zone than ever to write my daily blog.  I don't think that I've ever been this inspired as the articles have been effortlessly flowing in the past few weeks. I think it has to do with this magical place where the locals are as warm as the sun. When I speak about locals, I am referring to both Mexican and Ex-pats alike, who have opened their hearts and homes and made me feel welcome. San Jose del Cabo is a place that is full of tastes that are familiar to me, having lived in Sedona, AZ. There's a Thursday evening Art Walk when a few downtown streets become plazas as patrons venture into each gallery sharing a glass of wine, some snacks and the appreciation of creativity and fine art.  Then there's the Saturday Organic Market, full of new age healers of several modalities as well as organic farmers and purveyors of organic goods and soaps.

Not to be confused with Cabo San Lucas, the energy here in San Jose del Cabo is as laid back as its inhabitants. In the morning you can find a few of us on the beach paying homage to the sun as it rises. It's the perfect place to find peace; and great seafood by the way. Yes, I am still quite the foodie; I've even got one of the waiters in the restaurant across the street hooked on a green smoothie after teaching him how to make the nutritious drink for me. (I am however, not giving up my stale love of bacon, by the way.)   Visiting for a week does not allow one to truly embrace the culture and lifestyle here. And where else can you literally bump into George Clooney, Leo DiCaprio or Jennifer Aniston as you await your table at a locals' restaurant. They come here because we respect their peace and privacy as we relish our own on a quiet stretch of white sand while admiring azul waters kissed by the sun.   

San Jose's streets shut down by 10 pm most evenings, but if you are looking to party, then a 15 minute bus ride to Cabo San Lucas will have you in the middle of the action, including a small Casino. Contrary to what most people have heard about Mexico, I feel safe here and think nothing of walking around after dark or taking a local bus.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my Sedona home and can't wait to rejoin my friends there, but every morning in San Jose finds me meditating in warm temperatures with a gentle breeze as my body is bronzed. I kick back in a sarong or jeans and tee shirt and am thankful for this incredible opportunity to spend time here and am enjoying each and every moment as I research the second book in the Beyond the Veil of Illusion trilogy.

Blessings and love to you this and every day,
