Edgy art cards, prints & products goes INTERNATIONAL

Hola—it's me, with zesty news: this quirky artist/writer is off to the Republic of Panama! 

Starting in March, I'll explore the beach-town culture of Las Lajas—a hidden Pacific Coast paradise in the country's Chiriqui province. Click here for a map of this unique isthmus.

I'm dubbing 2021 a year of simplicity. A time to soak up sun and sea after too many months of pandemic-related anxiety, political turmoil, and difficult choices. In a poolside bungalow just off the ocean, edgyart will mix a palette of native colors, music, and techniques while applying for a friendly nations visa. Slathered in sunblock, I'll play in the waves and wander the pristine 12-mile coastline (to burn those unwanted COVID-19+ lbs.), connecting cheerfully with locals and global ex-pats.  

Panama ranks #2 on INTERNATIONAL LIVING'S 2021 Annual Retirement Index. Wondering why? 

  • Greenbacks are bueno currency at the cash register 
  • Residents are kind and many speak English
  • It’s incredibly affordable and offers worry-free healthcare 
  • The weather is near perfect (yay, no hurricanes!) 
  • Lush rain forests, crystal blue waters with amazing dive/snorkel spots, insanely-fresh produce, gourmet coffee that sells for $1K a pound, world-class surfing, howler monkeys, fishing, and challenging hikes in the shadow of the country's highest peak, Volcan Baru. 

Wanna join me on this amazing journey? Look for a blog launch soon with more info. Meanwhile, FAQs:

Q) Are you going solo?

A) Heck, no! Fellow travelers include Bob (part-time) and our two Italiano pups, Jib and Vela. 

 

Q) What about the sailboat?

A) Keeping our 41-foot Forward My Calls ketch docked in southwest DC at Capital Yacht Club as a base for stateside responsibilities.

 

Q) Do you speak Spanish?

A) Not yet! But I do know that PELIRROJA means redhead :)

 

Q) What time is it in Panama?

A) Same as Eastern in the U.S. (Although many argue it's five o'clock somewhere...)

 

Q) Can I still buy your art and products online?

A) Si! For unique nautical gifts; for art canvas and prints.

 

Q) How can I be part of this fantastic quest?

A) Details soon come. Until then, check out Panama Relocation Tours (no compensation for me, just a link to the deets of our recent adventure in Central America) for the skinny on this country that's so much more than a canal. And Facebook for our new friends Glo and Phil of Our Panama Adventure.  Shout out to real estate maven Lauretta Bonfiglio at https://www.casasolution.com/You can also buy my art to add $$ to my travel kitty.

I'm seeking a more synergistic lifestyle: excited to share stories and artistic creations inspired by this chance to slow down and savor the simple!

Adios for now,
