Tomorrow we go to Sanibel Island, Florida. Never been there. It’s supposed to have good shells.
I am looking forward to sitting under an umbrella, my toes in the sand, the sound of the surf in my ears, and reading voraciously, and then staring out at the horizon with equal absorption.
I am looking forward to being warm, and floating in blue water.
I am looking forward to walking on the beach.
I am looking forward to getting out of my routine.
I am looking forward to diving into books, and writing with a pen, and thinking onto paper.
I am looking forward to being quiet, and talking to G, and riding bikes, and sleeping, and eating seafood.
I am looking forward to exploring a new place.
We shall see what gets read.
Yesterday my daughter and son-in-law put a bid on a house, and today that bid was accepted. It is a sweet house bordering green-space with extensive bike trails. I am so happy for them. Tomorrow is Em’s birthday and this could not be a better present.
Tonight in Gentle Yoga I confessed what happened with my Apple Watch last night. I took the watch off and marched it over to the other room to the cheers of my class.
It had to be done.
Technology is wonderful, and magical, and helpful, and fun, but it is also intrusive and disruptive and a distraction in a yoga space.
There is a time and a place for everything, right?
