Quotes for the day:


This life is yours.
Take the power to choose what you want to do
and do it well.
Take the power to love what you want in life
and love it honestly.
Take the power to walk in the forest
and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life.
No one else can do it for you.
Take the power to make your life happy.
– Susan Polis Schutz


Once upon a time,
when women were birds,
there was the simple understanding
That to sing at dawn
And to sing at dusk
Was to heal the world through joy.

The birds still remember what we have forgotten,
That the world is meant to be celebrated.

~~Terry Tempest Williams–“When Women Were Birds”


My wanderings:

Such a lovely gentle day it is.

The sun is not too intense.

There is a gentle breeze.

And you just might wonder

what else we do here besides make delicious smoothies

and eat delicious salads.

Let’s start with the body of water a moment’s walk away–the ocean.

It is warm and turquoise.  The beaches are white and light.

And we go swimming in it twice a day.

Here’s what the rhythm of our day looks like:

Water, smoothie and vitamins upon awakening.

Long walk along the beach.

Inhale vitamin d,

screen out uv rays with 45

wearing sunhat and sunglasses.

Time for long quiet walks, long talks or quiet meditation.


We go in the water for an hour or so.

It’s my favourite.

  We exercise in the water.

  We run, we do stretches, aerobics,

resistance training, crunchies, you name it.

  We run against the current, we swim on our backs

and then float and breathe.

  This is by far the most amazing exercising I’ve ever experienced.

  So gentle on the body, but so satisfying.

And I wonder every day while we are out there,

who might like to join us next year

on a smoothie, raw foods, exercise,

walking, and exploring  adventure and retreat.

Let us know if you’re interested.

I enjoy writing, not to say hey look what we’re doing.

I enjoy writing

because I enjoy inviting

friends to join in with us….

Anyway, back to the rhythm,

after we return to our “home away from home,”

we make more smoothies or salads,

and we both turn our attention

to many different interests

from writing to reading,

researching and planning.

  In the afternoon, we head back out for a walk,

another swim

and time to sit and enjoy the sunshine and beach,

the birds and vast skies

….we sit and enjoy life

with the deepest of pleasure and genuine gratitude.
