Day 2- July 18th
The Blue Fish Wall
I just crossed through a hole in the wall from one magical view to the next. The rock I sit upon sparkles with a mixture of minerals sandstone and white quartz pebbles imbedded in the weather worn surface. The Pacific Ocean stretches out beyond the horizon directly beneath the early morning sun as the waves make music where they meet the rugged coastline down below the cliff I’m sitting on. The exotic birds sing and dance ecstatically around the gnarly bushes trees and rocks surrounding me. Down toward my left the sounds of Manly beach waking up on this Wednesday morning. My stomach requests that I head toward civilization soon because this mornings coffee, matcha mate tea with Manuka Honey and passion fruit has burned off on my walk here. I could stay here all day if it weren’t for the rumble in my stomach and the desire to explore more. Having this rocky ledge all to myself with only flora and fauna is incredible being so close to a bustling city. It seems surreal... as if I’m in a dream yet what’s even stranger is that I am awake here and now soaking it all in. Praying that my right knee continues to feel better as I walk off the energy block that’s causing some pain. The power of mindfulness and the bodies ability to heal. I am doing my best to trust that I will be able to run by Saturday without pain and complete the half marathon and I know I must do my part for that. Even though my spirit is full and my heart is about to burst with love I understand that I live in a physical world with a physical body that has physical needs like food, water and sleep so I must be on my way. Thankful for all the people who make this world such a wonderful place where kombucha, nutrition and safety is readily available. I love this life that is this crazy grand adventure.
