Day 14: The Clock Flows to Now

“Time isn’t made up of discrete moments that pass out of the present and into the past. Time is an endless flow of experience that never stops being now.” -Steve Taylor, PhD The experiencing here is under way… flowing along towards a “blip” that signifies permission to open the door and step outside while theContinue reading “Day 14: The Clock Flows to Now”

Day 13: Taiwan Tidbits

5:48AM.  Today + One = Almost Gone. Weeeeee… e x c i t i n g! So, Taiwan Tidbits, let’s see what I can find in the crooks and crannies of this mind and the big virtual web. But most of all, the photos from my previous trip. I fell in love with this island nation backContinue reading “Day 13: Taiwan Tidbits”

Day 12: Hmmmmmm…

Quarantine Diary 5:38AM. Today + two = going for a walk outside! Experiencing life at street level while stretching my legs! Looking up at buildings, not down. Looking around corners, down alleys. And maybe finally tasting the soup-man’s cooking? He is popular! Most evenings he rolls up his cart, sets up shop in front ofContinue reading “Day 12: Hmmmmmm…”

Day 11: Good Company

Quarantine Diary: 6AM. No need for an alarm clock. Taking long deep breaths I’m enjoying my yoga practice this morning. The body is appreciating the attention, however long or short the practice may be. Tree pose and warrior pose are particularly rewarding today, connecting sky and earth. Wondering what thoughts will surface to write aboutContinue reading “Day 11: Good Company”

Day 10: Floating… and A Garbage Essay

Quarantine Diary: 6AM. Day 10 – double digits, exciting!! Five more days to go, the fifth one the release day (I’ll be out of here the morning of October 23). This morning, I have a craniosacral session with Birgit. As I lie comfortably on my bed, her gentle voice guides my attention to the breathContinue reading “Day 10: Floating… and A Garbage Essay”

Day 9: Inbox Inspirations and a Trip to Vietnam

Quarantine Diary: 6AM. Another day starts in my posh prison cell 🙂 Today I’m aware of breath. I have noticed that my breathing has been shallow, that I need to remind myself to take deep breaths, expand inward and outwards. Especially since travelling from Vancouver to Taipei, having to wear a face mask for hoursContinue reading “Day 9: Inbox Inspirations and a Trip to Vietnam”

Day 6: A l m o s t . . .

Quarantine Diary A l m o s t… half-way! Yeay! So far, so good… the body is starting to feel a bit “couchpotato-ish” and, oh dear, my tan is starting to fade 😉 but other than that, life in the den is pretty good. I can remember -mostly as a kid- getting completely absorbed byContinue reading “Day 6: A l m o s t . . .”

Day 5: Play, rest, be silly

Quarantine Diary 6 AM. It’s raining. As it often does. Not for long though. The weather here changes by the minute sometimes. Taiwan’s people joke about their climate. Weather is iffy and forecasts are just for reference… there is always good weather in Taiwan, but not necessarily where you are at the moment. Ha! TheContinue reading “Day 5: Play, rest, be silly”

Day 4: Happy Thanksgiving ye all!

Quarantine Diary: 6:50AM. Fell asleep at 9PM, wide awake at midnight. Cruising Facebook looking at Taipei room ads until it’s time to join a zoom call with Gangaji at 2AM, during which I fall asleep 🙂 LOL! Her soothing voice does the trick. I find that Eckhart, Osho, and Gangaji rank high on the lullingContinue reading “Day 4: Happy Thanksgiving ye all!”

Day 3: Feathered Friends and other things

Quarantine Diary 5:30 AM. Sunday. It’s quiet, very few people about. Only the regulars – street cleaners, dog owners, a few delivery drivers. I hear bird song, perch at my window and spy a few feathered friends. A couple of sparrows have made a home in a hole in the wall across the street –Continue reading “Day 3: Feathered Friends and other things”
