The Return of the Voladores

There’s been a major shift here at lakeside. At least, it feels that way. For the voladores have returned!

It happened just this week.

I went for my usual walk along the malecon, soaking in the sun and watching the pelicans glide around on the lake. Then I noticed that the voladores, the flying men, were back.

They’ve been gone for almost a year. I assume they were prohibited from performing their skill because they tend to draw a crowd, a no-no in these days of fear. But now, they’re back!

Likewise it seems that the spirit has lifted locally. There’s a spring in everyone’s step. Earlier this week I went with a couple of neighbors to the park across the street for a lesson in Qi Gong. The professor spoke almost no English and we spoke little Spanish but that didn’t matter. We followed along and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And we’ll return for more lessons in the upcoming weeks.

I also strolled out on the bridge to nowhere to get another view of the lake. Lovely!

I’ll leave you with yet another video of the pelicans. I hope you find them as graceful and soothing as I do!
