I am going to talk about my favorite moment of my entire life for a minute.
It might seem a little hippy-esque to some of you, but it is the memory I hold most near and dear to my heart (especially as my bad memories tend to walk all over my good ones as my health tends to ruin most potentially good times).
It was this past summer. I was at the beach with my beloved boyfriend Jonathan, and two other friends. Prince Edward Island is known for its beaches, and this day...with the sun beating down, a light breeze, a bright blue sky, and soft sand between my toes...I knew why.
My body was behaving reasonably well at this time, although I still don't think I was holding down a job. Jon and I wandered into the salty cold water, which I find the most healing substance on Earth. Jon started spinning me around, weightless in the water, and all of a sudden I felt as though I could feel every emotion that a human being could feel all at the same time through the waves - despair, elation, fear, anticipation, etc... It was overwhelming but magical all at the same time. The one time I felt truly connected to something - my body, the Earth.
It probably sounds crazy. Maybe it is.
Does anyone else want to share a single moment that moved them this much? Or tell me if I'm losing my marbles?
