Meditation and Water are Wedded Forever

“Yes, as every one knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever.”
- Moby Dick Chapter 1 by Herman Melville

It’s my time.  Time to go underwater and get wet.  Slugfest III, here I come.

I’ll be at Crystal Blue Dive Resort again in Anilao, Philippines from 3/1 – 3/10.

Then afterward several of us are headed to Romblon to say at 3P Duck and Dive Resort from 3/11 – 3/16.   

I’ve been feeling a little sluggish lately.  I’m not sure if it’s me, or the time of year, or this hibernation layer that magically appeared around my belly (despite my morning swims).  I hope that some sunshine and salt water take me back to my happy place!

People always ask my route and how long it takes me to get there.  I never know the details because I book it, write it down and forget it.  So this time I’ll actually answer:  Chicago to Hong Kong 16 hours, then a three hour layover and a two hour flight to Manila… bringing me to a 21 hour trip.  The return will be a little faster… also through Hong Kong, about 19 hours in total.

I love tucking into my (economy) seat and attempting to watch all the movies I’ve missed and reading some new books I’ve downloaded to my kindle.  Inevitably, I just fall fast asleep.

Here we go.  For the next three weeks:  No makeup.  No bra.  No shoes.

Let's go sluggin'!
