It was a fine day on Maple Mountain. After yesterday’s rain, blue skies – and it seems they are going to stick around all week. And it was gloriously warm in the sunshine.
And so – I got what I was looking for: a long walk by myself in the forest. It was meditative and emotional. I cried. I hugged a tree. I experienced peace. I believe I felt every emotion I have ever known – all in the space of 5.5 hours.
And I felt the joy of moving my body, working up a darn good sweat – lunching in the sun, indulging in good chocolate on the drive home – and a hot bubble bath when I got there.
Each day comes and it goes and each day has its purpose. My job right now – move through these days mindfully.
Yesterday – The Debaters. I laughed, hooted, applauded and yelled a lot.
Wonderful to be there live.
Also – in a day or two I shall be set up with the BC Ecosocialist Party – with a spreadsheet. Oh boy. Phone calls and emails. Good to know I am doing something, however small a thing it is – something to help this poor, beautiful planet.
