Sea Turtles Help Me Meditate

Meditate and Maggie should not be used in the same sentence.  I’m just no good at it.  And I’m not that interested either (which I think is a big part of the problem).  Still, I think the world and my body are both trying to tell me that I just might need some.  So I’ve been keeping my ears and eyes open for ways that might work for me.  And I found one in a rather unexpected place.
Earlier this month when I was in St. John, we snorkeled.  And it was almost impossible not to see sea turtles.  They are my new favorite animal.  Watching them swim is so calming.  They don’t look like they should be able to get off the sea floor with their heavy shell, but when they do they are so graceful and they look like they are flying through the water as if they are birds of the sea. 
The water in the Caribbean is so blue that it’s a perfect combination of tranquility.  Since I’ve been home, if I’ve had trouble sleeping I’ve tried to bring myself back to these beautiful creaturess flying through the warm blue waters of Maho Bay. 
Here are two videos we took.  Enjoy.  First/Second

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
