I’ve returned from my 10 days away. The longest vacation I’ve ever taken in the 30 years since I’ve been working. So much to share, show and tell. But, I’m exhausted from my trip back from Tucson and my unpacking, unpacking, unpacking.

Stay tuned, because we have lots to catch up on including:

– My 4 day visit to the Miraval Spa (it was just as fabulous as last year with new classes, spa treatments, healthy food and exercise activities)
– My first-ever personal astrology reading (what did Astrologer Carolyn Crawford say about my life? Ooh, it was so much fun. Glad she taped it because with my fiftysomething memory I have already forgotten at least half of what Carolyn said at the session.)
– My 4 day visit to the Loews Ventana in Tucson (my first trip with my boyfriend L and we’re still together.)

Stay tuned, because once I get some sleep I am going to share, share, share…all that I learned from the two sexuality classes I attended at Miraval. I went to both sexuality sessions since I totally enjoyed the first one about “Being 16 Again” I had to go to the second session the following day to learn more about my libido.

Stay tuned, because once I get some sleep I am going to tell, tell, tell…all that I heard at Miraval’s resilience class about how to be more resilient.

Stay tuned, because once I get some sleep I am going to show you some pictures of the cactus I wanted to take home and the mountains I wanted to climb.

Forget New York, New York, I want to make it in Tucson, Tucson. If I can make it in Tucson, I can make it anywhere.

One more thing before I go to sleep…just one. I bought a great teeshirt at the spa gift shop. It has a big sunflower on the front that says “Love this Life.” The shirt has a poem on the back that was written in 2002 by David Culiner. Here’s David’s poem. I loved David’s poem the minute I read it, that is why I had to buy the teeshirt:

Love this Life…
is about celebrating the moment
and that we’re not guaranteed
or owed another day
and how cool it is that what we hide
can actually be the fuel towards our glory
and that it’s not so bad being proven wrong

Love this LIfe…
is about welcoming the blind turn
and the possibility that
there’s no such thing as coincidence
and that empathy is incredibly sexy
and that it’s never too late
to pick up a guitar or a paintbrush
or to make an amend or to make a new friend

Love this Life…
could be about rekindling a past flame
or igniting a new one
or shapeshifting the caress of a love lone gone

Love this Life…
means whatever it is you want it to mean

Love this Life…
is a celebration of you and your path

Love this Life…
cuz it could go at any second

you rock.

Isn’t that an amazing poem? See why I had to buy this shirt?

Oh, I have so much more to share, show and tell. Talk to you soon.
