Nancy has scheduled her first flash paddle for Saturday morning, as follows:
Mars is suppose to come closer to the earth in August than it has been in many years, since 1924. It is not suppose to pass this close for another two hundred or so years. Mythologically speaking, Mars represents the god of war or aggression. To balance the aggressive energies that may come up in August, I would like to have a "Centering Paddle." The focus of the paddle will be to be quiet (relatively speaking -- if you see a gator please speak up) and to reflect the beauty and harmony of nature in the morning. If you are interested in the "centering" part of the paddle, bring a towel or chair and come a little bit early (6:45am). I will share a thought to reflect on while paddling and a secret for bringing compassion into your vibration. Those not interested in the "centering" part, please feel free to not participate in the early activities -- just come and paddle.

The destination will depend on the experience level of the paddlers and the weather. My final destination is uncertain; we will see how it goes. Since I am a bit of a novice, we may cancel if the weather conditions appear threatening. For questions, call 208-7589 before 5:00pm on Friday. Otherwise just meet at Buzbee's at 7:00am on Saturday. If the masses are hungry, we can go to brunch afterward.
