“wait.” said the crocodile.

For those of you following along with my blog posts, I pulled cards from an Animal Spirit deck to lead the monthly focus for my 2023 blog year. If you would like more background, you can read the January post deck. I pulled water element cards for March – July: healthy stream = flow. An outpouring of creativity.

I like the water vibe. Paddleboarding is an anchoring thought for me. Speaking of anchoring thought, I have not used the term ‘anchor’ in my experience facilitating mindfulness with myself or with others. I watched a Cosmic Kids yoga breathing video last weekend and one of Jamie’s breathing strategies (not included in the video, but included in a pdf that comes with a subscription to the app) was ‘anchor’. I didn’t think much of it, but I used it on a personal level all week using a mental image of myself paddleboarding on Bear Creek Lake in Lakewood, CO.

I happened to notice that the last post of 2022 includes a picture of Smoosh with the caption ‘waiting for things to come’. I’ll share it at the bottom because the size is a bit awkward. Smoosh happens to be here right now and was assuming the same position – waiting. (However, I think it’s the bored kind of waiting…)

Today’s blog post will include sallysifer FB page posts from week one of the checkIN eight-week series, as well as the final two weeks (march 2020) of somethingmore. Something More. Connecting to the pulse of a Shared Humanity is a compilation of 2020 blog posts, available on Amazon Books.
