I feel like I miss those I love more out here. It is quite remote and startlingly beautiful, and I think the remoteness reminds me more how far away we are. Brian is quite a comfort to me. I have been unable to integrate the daily yoga and meditation that I was hoping to lean on due to the busyness of our schedules. I miss those things and realize how important they have become to me.
I met a young woman today from Canada who recently completed her yoga teacher training at Kripalu last year. Our animated conversations and the inspiration I have received from my friend's blog as she captures her experience going through her own yoga teacher training in New York, has started me thinking/wondering if I should consider attending a teacher training myself - if not only for the love of the practice to deepen my own. My mind is open to everything.
We leave Monday for Christchurch via a beautiful cross-country train from Greymouth. It will be Brian's birthday and we will be celebrating with a much earned evening out :) Then on to our next wwoofing home on the coast of Christchurch. I will hopefully have more access to internet there where I can post more pictures, video and stories :) Thanks so much to all of you for your comments and for sharing in this process with me!
