Didn’t see that one coming…

Sunday morning. We started with a heart chakra meditation today. And I distinctively remember thinking to myself: oh no, I am going to get emotional. Well, little did I know how emotional…

Rewind…

Saturday afternoon. We were doing some spine loosening exercises that involved kicking one foot forward while swinging the arms overhead in the opposite direction. And I still can’t explain why this had me in stitches. I started out alright, then I began thinking about bad aerobics classes and fell out of sync. From there I could not stop giggling. My friend started laughing too, which didn’t help, of course.

Tonight I feel raw. Last week I thought things were starting to fall into place. Then this bout of homesickness, the signs were there, but it still hit me head on.

Going through this meditation, opening my arms wide, made me think of standing at the edge of the ocean. Dundarave, Qualicum or even better somewhere at the Pacific Rim.

I miss my friends. I miss the Ocean. My husband misses the mountains (not that he ever goes up, he said, but he still misses them being there.) And our son said the other day: Mama, we haven’t been to Canada in a long time! Yes, I know. Oh, don’t I know it….
