It’s time I slow down and be in gratitude.

It is time that I slow down, and be in gratitude.  

Gratitude for all that is, all that was, and all that will be.

This past weekend, I had a very grounding journey in a friend’s VW Westfalia.  I just know that some day soon a Westfalia will be gifted to me, so that I may do my masters in style!20141010_143016

My adventure took me to Courtenay, British Columbia, where I found fields of pumpkins in celebration of the season, and trails that lead me to the sea, where I was inspired to record one of my songs.  A song that I wrote back in 2008.  It seemed fitting, being grateful for the sun, sitting on a log on the beach!   Scroll down for the video recording… tell me what you think 🙂

Saturday night, I camped out at a friend’s property, where a whole group of young environmentally conscious people came together to have a sweat.  A sacred ceremony hosted by a wonderful elder who not only keeps the ancestors happy, but tickles our funny bones in the lodge while deepening our connection with nature.  This is one of those experiences that everyone in the world, in my opinion, needs to experience.  Especially with someone like Windwalker.  Blessings to all of us who walk this life, in this time.

This time that I decided was meant to be savoured, so I slowed down and truly admire the beauty in nature, worshipping the final rays of light before we transition into the dark, cold winter.
