La Luna Deliciosa
As many of you have noticed, I've taken a bit of a Muse Adventure down to Tulum. I felt it was time to brush up on my Spanish (which, I don't really speak.. yet) and take dance classes. Since the rest of the world is closed - the only dance studio I could find that was open is in Mexico. So here we are. I want you to come visit. I want to come visit you! Either way, know that I am ecstatic and in good spirits when my heart is full of sunshine and dance.. so our time together will be better than ever.
So on this glorious Moonday (Monday).. I was sitting on the lovely beaches of Tulum..
Thinking about all of you. Those that I've met
Those that I will meet
And those that will only ever know me through their computer screens. I have a special place in my heart for all of you..
I love co-creating, exploring, learning, and growing
with each and every one of you. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world
at the opportunity to be a part of your journeys.
It's Muse Magic.. For both of us.
So here's a poem I wrote today:
Travel has a way of softening you.
As I move through a new city
much less.. hmm... what's the word
I am gifted a humility so deep
an opportunity to see the beauty in the messiness of life
As I walk the streets of Downtown Tulum
the taxi's (so many!)
the palm trees
people walking and biking
only moderately dangerous
and definitely electrifying..
It's a wild way of life
Some places have sidewalks
Some people smile and help you find directions
Some don't. Like Bali - it's a place of multi-cultures and
multi-facets of beauty.
Plus, my goodness! The beach. Oh to the resorts of Tulum and the magic that is there.. Today I walked up and down the beaches from my resort
such wild architecture
and on the other side
such virgin jungle beauty.
White sands squished between my
azul colored toe nails
salty waves lapping at my feet
the sun kissed my skin
as the stretch of my bathing suit
made sure I was protected in
only the right places
The sky, so bright and full of infinite possibility
gave me space to take extra deep breaths
as I settled into the sweetness of another moment
I sat, daydreaming
whispering kind words to clouds
that then opened up in cooling rains far away
a Rainbow appeared
very subtly, so much so that I had to truly pinch myself
making sure it was real
and her message was
to remind me that each day is a true Blessing..
I got lost in that Rainbow
Until I noticed even more was being born
on the other side of the clouds
As the Rainbow grew so did my excitement for Life
My smile widened as large as the ocean
and I felt the hummingbird wings of my heart beat faster.
It's who I am
and it's who you are.
Why don't we remember again..
As the sun and his fiery love
took leave (oh please don't go, you know I feel better
with your loving touch around!)
the whole sky's emotion shifted
from bright blues
to soft pinks and purples
a truly decadent moment
where the moons radiance had an opportunity
to put on her best show.
She's quite the flirt.
Oh delicious moon
you captivate me!
Once more skipping through white sands
I find myself on fallen trees basking in the spray
of the ocean, pelicans flying into the ocean
laughing with my head tipped back
as though I'm drinking in every single drop
of moon juice.
Once I returned to my home
the whole sky was dark
as the stars came out
First one - for me, my wish only! "A gift from the heaven's for being a kind heart"
I whispered to myself
So I sang that star a song
and along came all her friends.
So many stars sprinkled up into the majesty of the
dark night sky I can't help but make a wish for each of the people I love
on each and every one. Oh what a perfect life.
Again, time loses it's grip on me
as I'm beckoned into eternity
simply sitting on the beach
Come and visit soon.. Tulum and I are waiting for you.
