Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

It’s always when I’m running late…

That someone throws a few marbles in to add to my scramble for punctuality. Take last night for instance. I was showing/selling my car all day and was running late leaving New West to teach my yoga class in Kits. Rather than wait for the unpredictable bus I ran to the skytrain station and jumped on the first train. Things went well… no train delays. I make it to Burrard station with ten minutes to get to kits. I run for the bus and get there there just as it arrives, get myself a seat and look at my watch. I’m going to get there just in time to teach my class – big smile.

Then a cop car starts driving the wrong way towards us and stops in front of the bus. Odd… the bus driver stops for a bit, nothing happens so he pulls around the car. Then a second police car pull in front of the bus and more follow. We wait. A few officers get on the bus and I hear on the radio that they are looking for someone with black shirt and pants (I immediately assume they are looking for the shifty guy beside me). They find the guy (not the one I thought) and proceed to arrest him. Not sure why but the bus had to stay there during all of this.

We did finally get going and I was late for class – but I had a good story : )

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
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
