The title The Rite of Spring is taken from a ballet
The Ballet, when it was released in Paris caused controversy and rioting! it’s hard to imagine but it’s true. A yoga teacher I met at a retreat wrote a blog about it. To read his blog about The Rite of Spring see below for more information.
It’s been extremely frustrating recently, not being able to get out on long walks, due to an excessive workload. A change of scenery and a good long walk with a bunch of people is very good for the soul. Getting muddy boots and feeling the fresh air is invigorating. I’m so missing it.
It’s been too long, I think the furthest I’ve walked since November is probably about 6 miles. Mainly from Clapham to Brixton, the furthest being to Chelsea, or Penge via Crystal Palace Park.
I’m not getting anywhere near my 10,000 steps a day, due to cycling to work and back. Still, improvements have been made to my working life which is why I haven’t been getting out. So Happy Easter, welcome to a damp weekend.
The South Downs Frogs at it!
SOUTH DOWNS LEWES SUSSEX
This time last year or thereabouts I had decided to go off on my own walking across the South Downs and came across these mating frogs. I really enjoyed being out in nature. I will be having my 1st non-urban walk April 13/4/2018 re-visiting, The South Downs Lewes for a similar walk.
If I can have a few wee runs around the park during the next coming weeks, it should prepare me a bit for my practice walk from Hastings to Rye at the end of April. I will be leading that June the 1st I so need to get out and learn the route. Luckily someone wants to do it with me, so less chance of getting lost. I’m also leading Seaford to Eastbourne in May.
Please have a read of this thoughtful blog written by a yoga teacher who I met in Scotland back in 2011, at a yoga retreat.
Looking back at the pictures I feel a strange wave of sadness.
I haven’t seen anywhere as beautiful since.
