During our sailing/snorkel trip to Green Island in the Great Barrier Reef last week (has it really been a week? where does the time go?) I got to talking to one of the guides, David, about life, travel, health and wellness. It turns out, we have a lot in common when it comes to how we view much of those topics, as well as a few others; particularly, living in the present moment.
I gave him my email before departing the boat because, as a fellow writer, he wanted to potentially brainstorm some creative ideas for his in-progress work. I was flattered and happy to offer up some feedback.
I received a note just a few days later.
He signed it:
I guess there's really no other reason for me to be telling you this besides I can't believe it sometimes takes a virtual stranger to remind me, in the simplest of gestures, huh, I really *am* free...and to then take a moment to relish this truth deeply. To savor it. To feel almost lighter in remembering.
Ask yourself: Are you free? And if not, why?
love and light,
