On Sunday, Shar drove me to a yoga retreat where I would spend the next few hours. Shar was preoccupied with work and I wanted to give her the space to handle what needed to be handled without being in her way. Her home was cozy. Translation=super small and accommodating one person. She did have two doors separating the kitchen from her bedroom and a door on the bathroom. I have lived in cozy spaces before and so I was okay with it. My last "cozy" spot didn't have doors once inside the house. It was always interesting to entertain at that place.
The yoga class was rejuvenating. Afterwards, I sampled the yummy vegan fare and made my way back to Nassau. A water taxi enabled that and then I began the return walk to Shar's place. Initially, I thought I could walk back to Cable Beach. It would have been a long walk. Thankfully, several busses depart from downtown Nassau regularly.
Back at Cable Beach, armed with coffee and finally check out the sand. Amazing. I think I spent an hour, lavishing in my luck. I knew that Shar was preoccupied with work in spite of the fact that I had been gone for 4 1/2 hours at that point. I convinced her that a daiqueri was in order. She needed a break from the monotony of work and I was ready to start my vacation. Papaya, mango, cantaloupe, strawberry deliciousness. So happy!
That night we attended a thanksgiving, Canadian style. Shar has a cousin that lives near her and so I was included in their feast. An assortment of comfort food and pierogi's. We listened to random music and I met a bunch of their group. I had packed for the island trip and so I was on full relaxation mode. I bid adieu to fb and messaged my sisters before our trip the following morning. I knew that I would be without wi-fi for the next five days.
Those five days were glorious. Not that I didn't miss the convenience of instant gratification but I also woke up and did yoga, read or relaxed. I wasn't lured in to what was going on in the world around me. I enjoyed being in the present.
Today, I have yoga, work and maybe catch an inning of the world series. That is a big maybe since my job does not have any tv's in house. At any rate, it is a gorgeous day and I need to start it.
