I feel that I am in continuous search for different ways to expand the way I think about things. One way I have never seriously commited to this journey is exercise. I think that this process has already begun. For the holiday, my parents bought me some multi-terrain quadline skates (Skorpion Skates) so that our dog, Vegas, and I could do this activity together.
Since Christmas day, Vegas and I have skated twice a day. It is through the tired muscles and the companionship with my dog that I will explore a new realm of expanded thinking. It is the separation from human contact for 30 minutes to an hour each day. The experience, I feel, will be close to that of a rider and their horse. Even in the few times we have skated, I have felt a release of stressful energy. I hope to explore these feelings further in time.
