My plan for this summer is to do some more rec/sea kayaking. I love the way kayaking makes me feel about the world around me. It’s challenging physically, then it’s the mental and almost spiritual experience that makes me crave it. It awakens everything in me, just like dance does.
Have you ever fell in love with a sound? The way a lone paddle in the water sounds…it’s delicious. In lake or sea kayaking, all you hear is the water, your breath, and the sound of the paddle.
So, I was asked by a friend if I was interested in trying out for a local dragon boating team and I’m going for the “fresh meat” night tomorrow evening. This might be the window into a whole summer of paddling and new friends.
