Talk about a Month that actually flew by, March blew past me at super sonic speeds. For a 31 day month, surfed a full spectrum of emotions, I welcome April with open arms. I am looking forward to some righteous single track lined with colorful blooming desert flowers, that painful neck ache from starring at the twinkling stars above, and skinny dipping in the clear cold mountain run off. Love Those Slime Covered River Rocks
Ortho-Bionomy works wonders, despite me. HA
I snipped a couple of cuttings off my mother plant for a friend of mine that just purchased a newer home. Just happened to be a Cholla Jumping Cactus.
Sure as all get out, they did the old bush the leg against, knee jerk reaction is that inevitable yank trick. A happy barbed end remained just below the surface.
Causally, I intertwined my arm with theirs for support and offered comfort without speaking of concerns. Our bodies have spirals, auras, and vibrational qualities that offer healing components. All I do is exaggerate those energy fields. With our arms comfortable, I spun a spiral, that yellow barb became pickable with tweezers. Sh*t you not and they were my witness. They Understood With Optimism
An elderly client returned with a wonderful story to share with me. Their poor arthritic knuckles really stiffened up this past winter. Wish I had video taped her face while they shared their experience.
They enjoy puttering around their front yard and pruning their "delightful rose gardens" but last year their hands just weren't strong enough for that chore. Could you imagine, not being able to immerse yourself in your favorite hobby???
After our session, with pruning shears in hand, they whittled away, PAIN FREE. Talk about a face that lit up right before my very eyes. Moments Like That...
Back when I was midway through Massage school, a dear friend, very respected member of this Valley, developed The Big C, passed away within the calendars year. Will never forget that phone call that I am about to share with you. They called me to ask if I would sub their show. I was living, working, and going to school in Crested Butte at that time. The more we updated each other, the bomb was dropped.
After graduation, we worked together weekly. During this time together, ups and downs, I made the conscious decision that I would NEVER charge a terminal client OR THEIR family members. I am approaching ten years of this explicable choice. Simply Giving Back
I recently entered the home of a wonderful old friend that is living in fear after being diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer. So frail, translucent skin, and sunken eyes. I fought off my own issues and projected the best of spirits and got to work. Shortly into our session, dawned on me, they needed to speak. This leaves an indelible impression on my mind.
Over the course of about 30 minutes, incredibly touching, they shared their regrets, their precious past, friends of and from the past, pets, they spoke as if they were grieving their own death. I Am So Fortunate
It wasn't necessarily the time on the bike this month, more the time of moving through situations. Visualizing projects from certain angles before wasting time swimming against them. And that Might Colorado River has quickly become Wonka's Chocolate River.
The rookies are out as well. I don't mind and I embrace standard protocol when approaching these novice wonders of this meandering society. Friendly hello, passing on your left with plenty of room, and what happy dogs are my usual expressions when addressing fellow trail users.
I am reminded of this when I see a friendly local passing by. Its a reboot of sorts, perspective, chance to talk weather, exchange pleasantries and on we go. I Appreciate Those Coincidences
Have been focusing on my ROM with regards to my ankle and foot articulations and whats producing power, whats burn out, and whats efficient of that abrupt situation. Where is my awareness when my hips are fully rotating, where are my elbows in relations to my wrist, and whats my ergonomics in general.
However, daydreaming is my normal demeanor while the wheels go round and round. Giggling in my own head, observing beautiful birds of pray in flight, and enjoying the random cloud formations that rule our Western Colorado horizon or the forever bluebird sky lines. Ether Way, I Am On My Bike
