Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

My Life of Pi Moment…

I was teaching my dance class Saturday afternoon. The studio is on East Hastings so once and a while we get a random walk in (sometimes it’s a homeless person, addict or a curious passerby). So I’m teaching and I see out of the corner of my eye, someone had come in the door. I look and it’s this old man with a walker. I have no idea how he got through the front door with the walker, he could only move it about 5 inches at a time. I can’t really stop teaching in the middle of class so I think ‘fine, he can watch class if he wants’. But he keeps on moving, 5 inches – shuffle shuffle, 5 inches – shuffle shuffle. I assume that he just needs to get closer to see. He keeps on coming. He’s getting dangerously close to centre of the room when… (this is where the Pi version starts) He throws the walker to the side and starts salsa dancing with Kristina! My heart still smiles when I picture it. (Reality version) he wanted to use the washroom… no dancing.

So not really Life of Pi in that there was no big lesson about people and life, but sometimes even just rewriting life’s stories a little makes the heart smile 🙂

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
