Today was a new kind of Christmas Day. I snorkelled around the Great Barrier Reef. I ate dinner outside in the warm night, the air full of sea. I am thankful for these few days to rest. I’ve needed a good float. It’s been an intense and enlightening 6 weeks of touring in Australia. I am now driving with confidence on the wrong side of the road. I’ve got 2 more weeks to go.
I hear of the ice storms and power loss in Toronto and I hope that everyone found a place to have their celebrations today. I was happy to see via Skype, that there’s snow on the ground in PEI. Sending light and warmth to unthaw those who need it.
I hope most of all that regardless of how you celebrate and even if you don’t, that you take a rest. One of the hardest things to do but one of the most necessary not to forget. Work hard, yes. But build in time to float.
If I don’t become a bird in my next life, I’d take a shot at a tropical fish. They are like underwater birds.
Merry Restmas to you, from me, under the sea.
