We had our first rain of the trip today as we biked into the national forest to finish our time in Sweden. It felt like a little blessing from the elements. In Ayurveda, you worship the elements because they are the building blocks of everything. The water outside meets the water within. It all connects. Nothing is separate. Instead of resisting the cold rain I pedaled faster and opened up into. It was the only way I knew how to say hello, yes, thank you, I'm here.
In the morning I found a photo our hotel owner posing with Luke Perry (of 90210 fame) and later I got to hang with this pony. It felt like all of my childhood dreams were coming true.
