With a decreased sense of always having to do something useful
to justify my existence, I now allow recreation, enthusiasm and delight into my life…
(From survival to recovery p.185)
Yesterday I really got into it.
My first, Fun Action Plan was: a solitary Kayak adventure.
I managed to lift my kayak on my car and headed to Lake Wingra.
It was still early, a few men stood quiet on the dock fishing.
Grey clouds hang out lazily in the warm air.
I slid my kayak in the water and started peddling towards the other shore.
When I got close, little friends started to greet me: an otter swam right past my kayak and
three red winged black birds flew around, making interesting patterns in their flight.
I also met a heron, three male ducks and a crow.
It was delightful to indulge in this fancy world of water.
Meeting an aspect of myself which was completely present and care free.
I gave myself permission to slow down and to have an experience of widening my feelings.
The expansive quality of the lake generated creativity and fresh ideas.
Today in Yoga I hope we can boost our own sense of happiness and spirit;
To celebrate our lives.
We will address the hamstrings and we will also dive a little deeper into the two hemispheres
of the brain in our practice.
I hope you will be able to join us.
