Thank you for joining me on my travels to asia.
I left Calgary, Canada on January 11, 2012 with a one way ticket to Goa, India, my backpack & a magical set of intentions with some still being unveiled as I continue along this nimble path. Check in frequently, as this medium conducting these expressions reflecting my perceptions across this river of consciousness will update often.. Will you join me as I journey into the pedantics of these semantics?
Feel free to share this blog if you wish!

India 2012: H2O - Whats Essential?
Is there a better way
to welcome in this chapter of my life than with reviewing the basis of life & what does that mean..
Living in the western world,
I have grown accustomed to many things, though
most notably fresh organic produce, clean streets with reliable waste disposal
& wild fresh mountain spring water - these are among some of my favorite things!
Just to mention a few.. Lets return & start with the basics …
(n) an odorless, tasteless liquid
composed mainly of hydrogen & oxygen that forms rivers, lakes & oceans,
and is a major constituent of all living matter.
For close to a decade, I have
journeyed to the Rocky Mountains (just west of my hometown Calgary, Canada) to
harvest fresh spring-water. I began doing so with my father when I was young
& it has expanded my awareness. It is now so much more than simply an
aspect of how I nurture my body with the cleanest available water. It has
turned into a ceremony & my relationship with water, is a window for me
into the greater cycle of life that we are all a part of.
I love my water so much & I hope you do too!
Now as I backpack throughout India,
the luxurious taste of
wild water (which I have harvested) filtering throughout my oral cavity,
a distant memory.
I am beginning to recognize this sensation with a deeper
sense of gratitude.
For now I shall journey, equipped with my best intentions
in my back-pocket, infusing every bottle
I come across with them & knowing
that this too is a ceremony.
That each bottle is sacred unto itself including this one!
Transitioning to bottled water with consciousness
is a part of this process, releasing from the old & embodying anew...
