Spirit Soul and Body Working
It’s been twenty-two days since I returned to ‘Gleda’ and Cartagena.
Only now am I beginning to feel restored and re-energised.
The weather here on the Costa Cálida has been below par for the time of year. Colder and cloudier than average with no sign of spring just yet.
I’m not complaining. Compared to pretty much anywhere else in Europe we’re much better off.
Today it’s 16°C (61°F) cloudy and some showers are forecast. Yesterday it was sunny and 20°C (68°F).
To be fair it’s actually made my life easier these past weeks as I’ve spent hours sat in front of the computer working on the book. Neither Gail nor I have been anywhere.
Yesterday though I made the most of it, took a break from the screen, and jogged round to Cala Cortina.
I’ve been doing that twice a week since I got back, but yesterday for the first time this year, I jogged there, had a swim and jogged back. Even though it was Saturday with more folks on the beach I still found a quiet spot for some meditation as well.
These little jogs have become an important part of my routine. The exercise is good for my body, the meditation is good for my mind, both are good for my spirit.
Back in January while I was in Falmouth I popped into Trago Mills for some toothpaste. As anyone from Cornwall will tell you, Trago is dangerous.
I came out with a GoPro camera.
Actually, that’s not true. I bought a camera made in China that looks like a GoPro. It was less than £30 with all the accessories, including a waterproof case.
I thought it was worth a pop and that maybe I could start shooting some video when we’re sailing.
Anyhoo, as I’d got it I thought I’d have a play, so I took it with me yesterday and shot a bit of video.
Like I said; GoPro it ain’t. Hopefully, it’s watchable though and better than a few photos. Let me know what you think and if you’d like to see more.
‘A Foolish Odyssey’ is in the last stages of compiling. It’ll be done and uploaded by Wednesday. As of today, sixty people have pre-ordered it. That’s pretty amazing and if you’re one of them I thank you. The fear factor with ‘Foolish Odyssey’ is far higher than it was with ‘Foolish Voyage’. They are very different stories told in very different ways. I really have no idea how it’ll be received.
I’ll know soon enough though eh?
Whatever, my thoughts have already moved on to what’s next. I’ll let you know when I’ve decided.
I’ll not be thinking much farther ahead than March though. This year I’m taking it a month at a time.
Catch you next time.
