There are a few types of ocean waves and they are generally classified by the energy source that creates them. Most common are surface waves, caused by wind blowing along the air-water interface, creating a disturbance that steadily builds as wind continues to blow and the wave crest rises. #eoellas
Buzzing! Shoulder strength and flexibility is slowly returning, no where near what I want yet, but getting there! Thank you to RBH Physios. So what a beautiful day with warm water to be falling into. Lovely and quiet on Monday morning. I can only do quiet beaches. I don’t cope in crowds. It’s a weird thing ( we all have our peccadilloes! I used to march my children for miles in search of the loneliest places) for someone known to be on the gregarious side, but it’s true. So if this amazing sunshine and cloudless skies is global warming, it doesn’t feel so great. It’s feckin scary. But let’s not let that thought ruin our unusual summer for today. Claire and I are busy planning and takings bookings already for our October retreat! Saturday 27th October, Then the weather will be so different. We can promise you a cosy day of warmth and autumnal vibes. In spite of this sunny season, autumn is my favourite time of the year. Time to rest, restock and restore. The danish term Hygge explains it perfectly. Just being. Comfort. Contentment. It’s clear. Join us. -
So you know a woman with breast cancer? I really don’t like to face this. I love to be under my comfortable rock of denial. But I also know that recently diagnosed women need to see this. I had an inspirational woman who allowed me into her bubble of sunshine and led me through a dark place, feeling pretty great!
Most people who know me know all about it, and most supported me in 2004, but this is what 14 years on from a breast cancer diagnosis, a double mastectomy and many months of chemotherapy, reconstructive surgery and hormone treatment can actually look like. I was 44 and now I’m 58. Of course it feels like a million miles away! Oh yes I feel as if I’ve grasped life, gently, undramatically but wholeheartedly. Yoga became increasingly important to me, my body and mind. It’s not all been easy even if it feels like fun! I’ve lost people en route. Which really hurts. I worry that I wasn’t present enough for my own beautiful children and that I still spend too much time faffing in pointless ways. Prioritising time with people is essential I’m told, but still feels awkward. . If I can’t spend time with those I’d like to be with, then I’m grateful and love those who want to be with me.
Love the one you’re with! -
