The countdown is on 🐪 🐪 ⠀
It’s been a year since my last proper holiday and am feeling the readiness to turn my “not here” email on.⠀
I love what I do both in and out of my business however in order for me to “be here” and be present I need to also not be here if you know what I mean. I’m guessing you’re all nodding knowing exactly what I mean.⠀
So yes the countdown is on and once again it’s as if the universe can feel this and has every energy coming at me and wanting a piece of me before I’m “not here” 🤣 to which I take a deep breathe and reassure everyone (and myself) it will all be ok. ⠀
T - 3 weeks #morocco ⠀
If I was normal I'd not write about my pre ear surgery feelings and share them here. But I'm a person who writes and people who write can't help themselves.
And anyway, it's so out of the ordinary this state of being, to be preparing to go to hospital to have an expert cut in to you with a knife, to perform a kind of mystical thing that you cannot even imagine being possible. To have hope that afterwards you'll wake up and have had something fixed, a tiny patch set over your ear drum, like a patch sewn on to the elbow of a scarcrows jacket. What trust! To know you'll be asleep while people are around you poking you with god knows what and checking you with machines you do not understand. Its a kind of wizardry, a kind of ritualistic thing, to allow yourself to be healed by a Dr.
I think about the surgeon having his breakfast, maybe getting on his bike whizzing through the streets, getting annoyed with people stepping out without looking. I hope the traffic lights were always green and his tyres were pumped. I hope he's had a good sleep and I'm glad it's not a full moon!
Everything feels profound, the toast I had for breakfast eaten before 7am, like they told me. The making plans for summer, the friends that text, the words I haven't written. The noticing the loveliness of my bed, the not knowing if I'll sleep in it tonight or if I'll wake in a hospital bed tomorrow. The wondering if I'll feel like shit for a day or 10. The blessing/curse of my wild imagination. The fact that I'm grateful for nhs treatment, for a good hospital on my doorstep and all the seas I'll swim in when my ear is fixed!
Send your luck my way 🙏

Shi was built on my own project and launched by me and my friend in 2013. Work lasted five months. The frame material is stainless steel, so you can even go to the open sea. Now she carries new white sails and swims in the Ob reservoir, delighting all our friends and family.
Эта лодка была построена по моему собственному проекту мной и моим другом и была спущена нами на воду в 2013 году. Работы длились 5 месяцев. Рама из нержавейки совершенно не боится соленой воды, поэтому, при желании можно выходить даже в океан. Сейчас у нее новые белые паруса и мы ходим на ней по Обскому водохранилищу. Мечтаем о Средиземке и о походе на Канарские острова, готовим к запуску канал на Ютюб. Приглашаем всех в летние походы и просто покататься на выходных ))
I don’t believe in regretting things in life..they happen because they were suppose to happen. I wouldn’t take back anything because it got me to where I am now…and where I am now is ridiculously blowing my mind. I want to re live this Na Pali boat tour every day if I could. The mountains, ocean views, dolphins, turtles, whales, music, and sunsetting...I can’t get over how GOOD this life can be if we let it happen. Thank you @capt.andys for having me photograph your raft tour led by the best captains @kauai_aquaholic + @kauai_pirate.#kauai#napalicoast#captandys
