Is that an oxymoron – or a double entendre? Let’s see if I can help you understand. I’ve missed you, it’s true. But why didn’t I write? I could say it was writer’s block. I bet there are writers out there who have had writer’s block for a quite a few years. But actually … I went back to school. Yep, 4 years ago at age 58, I “turned back time” by adopting the rather youthful attitude of an explorer. I was so curious in regard to understanding the human body, that I decided I needed to step out on a learning journey and get that needed education. I spent 3 of the last 4 years getting my ND (Naturopathic Doctor) certificate and the last year getting my MT (massage therapy) license. Now I am also studying herbalism – the study of the science & health benefits of plants. I’m not out to prove anything, I just have a driving desire to learn all I can in my final years of life – about life, starting with what I didn’t know about the amazing wonders of the precious work of art we call the human body and the beautiful natural environment that surrounds it. I’ve also fallen in love with the study of Permaculture, also known as Sustainable Agriculture. I am thrilled and relieved by the hope this study gives me for actually returning back to the environment, the stolen life we humans have taken from it. I’ll talk more about that in future blogs. I will discuss too, what I am discovering upon taking up the beautiful powerful Chinese practice of Qigong – as a way of inviting invigorating healthy energy into the body and its organs and directing our heart-flow energy out in loving prayer and gratitude – to a loving creator and a loving creation. It is a connecting with the healthy beneficial energy of our world. The pictures I’ve chosen represent the feelings that accompany a journey of this proportion. The oxymoron revealed – I’m back to write, but still journeying.
