Weekend Learning's

Tuesday, 27 October 2015

So I went to Israel to see my love. I do not care what anyone says, when you really love someone, it never gets easier to say goodbye. There is always a little part of me which is lost when I leave him. And when we are together, I am whole again. Everything is simple and easy, it is just right. I had an incredible time - I always do… an adventure is not a place, it is the person you are spending those little moments with. I could go from the third floor to the ground floor and he would turn it into something incredible… a ride in a lift… romanticising the waves under the moonlight, watching the democratic debate! Adventures! Because it is you. This is what I learned;

  • "The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience."Eleanor Roosevelt 
  • That whole new thing about checking in online for your flight is becoming a big deal. Some poor souls were left off the flight due to overbooking… not cool, but I guess it is becoming an online booking first come first serve deal… shame. 
  • "Republicans win when there is low voter turn out.” - Senator Bernie Sanders telling all of your asses to go vote.
  • Eilat has got to be one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been. Yes I had my rose tinted glasses on… I feel a little warmth in my heart thinking about its beauty… I wish I had done more there… next time!
  • "The mind is beautiful because of the paradox. It uses itself to understand itself." - Adam Elenbaas
  • You cannot be on a migraine eating plan in Israel and at an all you can eat buffet! That is all.
  • Sometimes my boyfriend makes me laugh so loud I stop mid laugh and think… gosh is that me? I have never experienced that before… it is those things in our relationship that I cherish… sore cheeks from smiling… sore stomach from laughing… lé good life, still, after all this time, you keep me laughing. 
  • The açaí palm is a species of palm tree cultivated for its fruit and hearts of palm. Its fruit can be made into a kind of sorbet and it is really delicious! Oh my gosh it is actually divine! With the addition of toasted coconut (best), granadilla, banana, granola, just to name a few, it becomes an Açaí Bowl, delicious, especially served with two spoons and a chilly kiss.
  • Anyone who cuts and shares an apple with you is a sweet and lovely human. 
  • "You belong right here, in the stillness next to me. You are home with me.” - Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson
Have a good week little yellow leaves, back to the grind of the fall. 


PS. “Learning how to love is the goal and the purpose of spiritual life… love is the truth. Love is the light.” - Lama Surya Das
