Pura Vida 3: Values and Practices: Part 2 of 2


Costa Rica has owned the phrase “pura vida” and use it often. It may be translated as “pure life” – enjoying simple pleasures, companionship, calm and leisurely times. The first newsletter in this series looked at leisure reading. (Value: curiosity, Practice: reading for pleasure). An opening question was Zorba the Greeks exasperated outburst to Basil 'You don’t know! Well, all those damned books you read - what good are they? Why do you read them?' (Kazantzakis, N. 1961), answered in part by English author Julian Patrick Barnes: “When you read a great book, you don’t escape from life, you plunge deeper into it (life)”. The second newsletter outlined personal values and personal practices in general, and went deeper into one or two of them. We continue now by looking at the highest human values. Should any reader wish to discuss any of the topics covered, my Skype address is: graham.lynette and my email is: centserv@iafrica.com
