I spent three rainy, wonderful, days at Kripalu Health and Yoga center in Lenox Mass. My objective - capture a little spring sprout. A long-term objective is to capture a little of each season and put together a seminar with daughter Bridget on ‘Seeing through YOUR lens’, or something like that. - It would make a great Kripalu workshop, or for that matter, a good workshop to be offered in the Champlain Valley.
I am big on, what I call, image reflecting - my version of nature mindfulness - meditation - reflecting on whatever comes to mind, prompted by a focused image capture. Also, (attest this blog) I am big on living my Love Priorities. A workshop to connect with others, while playing out passions, would be great.
I would not create this workshop without Bridget’s leadership. She offers creativity, nature mindfulness and life coaching insight. The balance offered by the two of us - yin and yang, if you will, will be interesting, fun, and a great life experience.
Nature teaches us a bunch about balance. Initially, I was disappointed with no sun at Kripalu. But thank God for the rain. After spending time in the rain, I felt much gratitude for the moisture and saw spring sprout, more so than I would have with sun glare. Sun and rain are Spring’s elixir. One without the other is like us without our daily dose of water - no water no life.
I bumped into a trail runner, also at Kripalu for a respite. She was exhilarated running in the rain, as I was shooting in the rain. I asked if she was cold, running bare armed. She said she loved it - it feels so good. I usually make a habit of staying inside in the rain. It’s a mistake - I think the rain connecting with body is like a sapling absorbing needed moisture. I love it! I embrace it!
