Day 13: Throw back Thursday

Day 13: Throw back Thursday

This post is from last February.

Good morning Challengers

In case you don't know I work Friday and Saturday nights at Buddha Pie Pizza shop. Last night a couple came in. She was visiting from Ireland, and he lived on Runnymeade. After I gave them their pizzas I asked about how they knew each other...I said it sounded a bit like a joke 'an Irish girl and a Torontonian walk into a pizza shop...' She said she had been here for two weeks and I said, "Oh you were here for the storm(s)." She said she was watching the news at home before she came and it was saying that Canada was being hit by a polar vortex. She said she thought that was a made up word like from Star Wars or something that the news was joking. Then she got here and no, we were, it was real.

Well there's one other thing about this story, that ties into my pledge to be more inspiring. Both of these people were blind. John at the pizza shop couldn't believe they braved the ice and snow to come and get a pizza. The couple laughed telling us this was nothing, they had both ended up in snow banks over the last couple of weeks.

So Challengers, if a blind woman from Ireland who's never heard of a polar vortex can come out on a cold, icy night...So can we.

Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.
Day 27: outdoors as a sensory experience.

I am aware of what my body needs - active, upright, arms swinging motion. I notice there is a tone to my walk - purposeful, present, confident.  I notice the openness around me, the cleared sidewalks and roads, the clouds are softening, lightening up, revealing a soft blue sky.
