Blazing your own trail…

The plan this morning was to run some intervals on the track… Anadi came with me – he was going to stretch while I ran – but we arrived to the buzz and activity of ‘something going on’… Young boys and girls were collecting race numbers, and an exciting and anticipatory energy was all around…

I asked if it was possible to use the track, but no, it was a big competition, the Andalusian championships… I can come back tomorrow between 8am and 2pm…

Seeing all the little strips of athletic girls, took me back to racing 800 metres barefoot on the grass in the Farnham and district sports when I was 12…

On arriving and feeling the energy of competition I immediately wanted to join in…!

Joanie (Benoit Samuelson) racing a marathon at 60 years old, inspired me a few days ago; today it was the 12 year old girls who were my inspiration; all brown and lithe and ready to run and run and run…

Social media is a wonderful thing, connecting us each day all around the world… I have made many new online friends this way and have discovered  instagram to be a delightful place where I have connected with many other travellers and adventurers around the globe; seeing their beautiful photos opens even further the limitless possibilities in this life … A community of nomads already exists and I imagine that the way Anadi and I are choosing to live will be quite normal in the next 10 years…

I have always tended to live ‘ten years ahead’ of what is occurring and so it isn’t surprising that this trend would continue.. When I first started working as a ‘life coach/ mentor/ teacher/healer’ in the very early 90’s, I went to a training organisation to see if they would employ me… A nice man interviewed me and he was very encouraging and supportive of how I worked with people, but at the end of the conversation, he said… ‘The way you practice is ten years ahead of what is going on now… You will be better to continue alone….”

I remember walking out into Marble Arch, wandering into Hyde Park and feeling a mixture of emotions; slight disappointment as I was hoping for some ‘safety’, yes, that chimera! And at the same time a soaring of my spirits as I felt seen by him, and I knew in my heart that he was right, and that the true safety came from blazing my own trail….

And so here I am, still blazing my own trail; a nomad on the road to who knows where…

As with all social media there is the space on instagram for private messaging and one of my ‘followers’ sent me a picture of his naked self last night!

‘There must be something in my energy field that invites this’, I laughed to Anadi as I showed him the overtly sexy X rated pic I’d been sent in the night…

My admirer did send me a message a few weeks ago saying I had good legs and bottom; and I replied ‘thank you’! Maybe that was invitation enough…?

Anyway, as I said to Anadi I am receiving the photo as a gift of art, the human form in all its glory…
