Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

These ‘random’ sunny days are dangerous!

Why you ask? Let me tell you, and don’t get me wrong – NOT COMPLAINING! Sun is my preferred weather. Days like today in Vancouver are gorgeous. The air is crisp and cool, the sky is a gorgeous blue and the mountains are clearly visible, towering and still white with snow. Even in the city – thankfully we’re not one of those polluted cities where a sunny day equals a beautiful gray sky. And thanks to Premier Gordon Campbell’s Green/Blue efforts I think we’ll stay that way. But here’s the hazard:

At this time of year there are still a few great shoe sales going on so it’s not uncommon to spend one’s lunch hour perusing Robson street in the sun. Sunny and bright but not quiet warm means the shoe stores are keeping one door open and one closed. All the doors are crystal clear clean glass. You see where I’m going with this? Someone could very easily smash into one on the way out. That someone might even turn to look at the 3 people in the store (2 customers and one hot sales-dude that she may have been flirting with prior), see the shock on their faces and say “nobody saw that right?”. Lightening the mood to laughter to which she retorts “no seriously, I want you to swear”. They all obediently swear and then she turns and leaves… looking up (to see where she’s going) with a massive headache.

I’m just saying it could happen. Not saying it did. Today. At lunch.

A closer look at Poplar Island, the small island off the Fraser River that I see every morning. There’s a dark history to this island. I had heard that it was used to quarantine people during the small pox epidemic in 1889. What I didn’t know was that New Westminster was originally all Qayqayt territory, and when Europeans settled in the area they displaced the Qayqayt peoples to Poplar Island. When small pox hit, Indigenous populations were hit hard. It almost completely decimated the community on the island. Europeans then continued to send any indigenous people with small pox to the island. The island ended up becoming a burial ground. Looking at the poplar tree life that grows from the island in a new light now. #qayqayt #remember #bchistory
BEEhave At first I thought this was a birdhouse but it turned out to be a bee🐝house. More accurately, a bee condominium. Found this beautiful world as I was out looking for colour inspiration in nature for my loft. #newwest #bee #behave #nature #color #colour #boardwalk #design #decor
I used to fill my IG page with travel pics, but now my weekly walk for groceries feels as exciting as a destination across the world. Probably helps that there’s so much spring nature decorating my path. #socialdistancing #spring #nature #bloom #love #community #staylocal
My broadcast nightmare came true when I taught my entire class on Easter Monday without sound 😬 so I’m offering an extra class this week on Thursday April 16th via Instagram live at 7:30 pm. With sound 😀 Follow my other account @lofty_vibe to be notified when I go live. #yoga #soundhealing #restorativeyoga #ufodrum #instagramlive #relax #restore #chill
I was getting setup for tonight’s #restorativeyoga class and noticed the shadows. I can’t resist geometric framing. Anyway, if you’re ready to relax, tune in every Monday @lofty_vibe at 7:30 pm. If you are feeling a little screen fatigue, rest assured 😉 you won’t be looking at your phone. All you need is the sound. #yoga #restorative #heartchakra #happydrum #soundhealing #singingbowlmeditation
Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
