Every waking moment, I say to myself "Costa Rica Here I Come" while I have never been there; I have seen the most majestic photos of it and videos via HGTV. And how breathe taking they are. On my line as a grocery store cashier I have heard my customers rave of it who have actually been there. Each time they have said that, I have wanted to pack my bags and to flee to this tropical oasis.

They are bitter sweet moments as I thrill of their comments of this tropical oasis and where reality smacks me on the face that I will never get there.

Each day as I reside here on Long Island and in reading the news, I want to flee it. One reason being is when Newsday prints articles like these, NY utility hiking storm budget. Yes, you guessed it. The utility is LIPA which was supposed to cut our electric rates in half years and years ago, only seeks to raise our rates. In fact every out of state and in-state (not living on Long Island) customer I have waited on has stated that their electric rates are far lower than ours. HELP!

But truth be told, I just want to flee to Costa Rica period. I want some solace in my life. While I do not have the money to do so and keep on saying to myself, I should play the lottery; real life keeps smacking me upside the head that every penny made should go toward needs and not wants.

Also, I want to live out the rest of my life however long or short it may be without any Tea Party movement and be blessed with health care for all citizens. Costa Rica does have health care for all of its citizens and isn't that grand?

Will I ever get to live in Costa Rica? I really do not know, but as forces rage here in the United States, I only wish to flee it. Why live here?
