Experience I am raving about: Bioluminesence in San Diego
If you are looking for something to do at night during the shelter in place I strongly recommend taking a drive over to the beach to check out this spectacular natural occurrence. During the “red tide” in which a specific type of algae bloom the water, especially inside a crashing wave, appears to glow an unearthly blue/green color! We also found that doing the moon walk (think Michael Jackson) or stepping heavily in the area where the water is very shallow, lights up under your feet. I have lived in San Diego for 40 years and this was one of my favorite experiences yet. If you are concerned about being around other people you can still view this amazing site from you car. Take a look, you will not be disappointed!
Documentary I am watching: The Barkley Marathons
Would you be crazy enough to enter a race in the back country of Tennessee that has been running for 25 years with only 10 actual finishers? What if I told you that it cost $1.60 for your entry fee, plus a license plate from your home town? What if you knew that the race consisted of five loops around a 20 mile course including 60,000 feet of elevation gain (if you did all five loops)? Lastly, the cutoff time is 60 hours. Would you still be game? If you are saying, “hell no” I don’t blame you. If you think this sounds like a very entertaining and inspiring documentary, you would be correct. You can find this on Amazon Prime if you are looking to learn more about this outrageous competition!
Quote I am pondering: ” If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turn into increased aliveness, alertness and creativity.” ~ Ekhart Tolle in A New Earth
Within our current situation, massive uncertainty exists. Therefore it is essential to recognize that how you choose to handle perceive what is happening around us is entirely up to you. You call the shots on how you will respond. Be present, be aware and identify what you are solving for before making up your mind.
Have a kick ass week everyone!
