Walking Begins

June 3, 2016

Despite the failure of my automated blogpost to email setup, I adhered to our departure schedule this morning! One thought I had was that energetically, it was important for me to get the walking underway and not get delated by the uncooperative mystery. That the url for my website feed to fail made no sense! I had no response to it, so just succumb! Maybe tomorrow it will work!

Still, it was a challenge to let it go, the week’s work basically negated, with no known cause.

But, generously, Ken drove us to Rockfish Gap. It was strange passing by the entire Tye River section, although I certainly have walked it enough times to feel satisfied – for now anyway.

Frustrated to Confident

Today was a transition day from feeling frustrated with the technical challenge of setting up an RSS feed of my blog to my subscribers and Facebook page to feeling confident that it can actually work!  Thanks for reading!
The second accomplishment of the day was to pack our backpacks! I’m happy to say that my pack, with a liter of water and 4 days of food weighs  in at 20 -22 lbs.

Now, before you gape with too much amazement, I will remind you that one of the favorite qualities of my heartsinging walk is that I have a hiking partner who shares gear with me! That means that I don’t have to carry everything I use!! read more

We’re sending five maildrops containing foods that I like and can’t buy. Some, like our homemade¬† hummus, sweet potatoes, and pineapple that really are not available in stores.

This food is not meant to be our total resupply. We will supplement this with other food from stores and restaurants. John picked places at 70-mile intervals, which is 4-5 days apart. read more

Steps

I am grateful to John for his consistent support for my endeavor. “You’re trying to live your expression and that’s a challenge sometimes. You want to be close to people.”

It’s always weird to sign “in joy” when I’m feeling tense and frustrated. Is this part of joy? Perhaps.

In joy,
Regina

Today, I’m testing out a new way to send updates from the trail. I’m experimenting with integrating my blog with my MailChimp service.

There’s a lot to talk about,  especially in the realm of energy shifting! When I get scared, like I am now trying out something new, I feel bad! My head hurts, I want to sleep, and feel nauseous too!

“Run away! Stop! Take a break!” says my fear.

“Keep taking steps! You’ll be ok!” says my courage. read more

Moving On

I guess “S” for “Sebastian” is what the feeling of movement made! John and I left the baby grandson in Charleston, SC late this morning – after just one more hour of babysitting so my son could mow the lawn. Mom was at “an appointment” that was revealed on FB as a hair salon visit. I love how they are being generous to themselves!!

As usual, my three-day visit gave me daily opportunities to have feelings and judgements bubble up, more chances to notice those beliefs and Old Stories that let me me separate from others. read more

I’m driving through Atlanta, Georgia, thinking, “Wow! This feels so familiar, yet has just a tiny twinge of longing to be home here. I HAVE  a home, and it’s now in the California desert, not here in Dekalb County as it was for twelve years. That was my past!”

Nonsenory Immersion feels grounding, expanding, acceptable, yes, and even essential as a part of my consistent message. Today, there’s no question of whether I would do this exercise. It is a welcome moment in my day! read more

This Nonsenses Immersion emerged over the miles between Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and beyond New Orleans.

Another city goes by without stopping to visit a friend. This time its Carla, an Appalachian Trail friend and coaching colleague. A hello text message suffices for this time. My life certainly has provided me with lots of friends! 

Color flows onto the paper between looks at the luminous NOLA. I reflect on Hurricane Katrina, the fury here 10+ years ago. I think about Maria Maria and her Katrina story that she shifted during a Forgiveness Walk in Atlanta in 2011. My work is valuable! It even touches this place with healing and forgiveness.
