Santa Cruz, California

Posted by terrepruitt on September 24, 2009

My husband and I live in San Jose. We are pretty close to Santa Cruz, I think. It is about 45 minutes away. But usually it takes longer than that to get there due to traffic. We don’t go there often.

Yesterday I went “over the hill”, we call it because we have to go over the hills to get out of the Santa Clara Valley/Silicon Valley to the ocean side.

While there, I thought, I don’t come here enough. This is beautiful. And I took a few shots, thinking I would share Dance Exercies, Nia, Nia Campbell, Campbell Nia, Nia classes in Campbell, evening Nia, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Niathem with you. Then I was thinking I should write something to post. But then I was invited to coffee today, when I “should have” been writing my blog, I was having coffee. When I accepted the invitation I had a feeling that going to coffee was where I needed to be and posting the pictures of Santa Cruz was what I would end up doing.

Well, it turned out that I was at coffee for three hours. I had been correct. I needed to be on that coffee date making a connection with someone. And these pictures are beautiful and they really should be shared. Because California is beautiful. Santa Cruz is awesome. Yesterday was the most gorgeous day there.

The pictures are beautiful not because of the skill of the photographer, but because of the skill of the maker—-no one could have taken a bad picture of yesterday’s masterpiece. It has worked out as it should. I have been studying the Nia 5 Stages, it is a “self-healing” movement practice. I took a break from it with friends and wow—the break was another way of self healing. Friends, the ocean, coffee, conversation, an exercise in listening, it is all very healing!

Is there something you do for you that is self-healing?

    Beautiful! And I definitely think you made the right decision about coffee. If a picture’s worth a thousand words, you’ve got, um… (counting) 6000 here! Yay you! πŸ˜‰

    • Yes. The non-working on Wednesday was planned. The ocean was a bonus. The coffee turned out to be an extra gift, so the pictures were used. Thanks you for checking it out.

      I was thinking that your blog gets so busy, I don’t know how you keep up. Reading the comments alone is time consuming. Then you are so kind you comment back on all of them. That is so nice.

      So thank you for taking the time out to view the ocean. πŸ˜‰

    I think the ocean is self healing…just as you said, everything as it should be and I am so glad I could share these beautiful sights with you!

    • I agree. The ocean is self healing and sharing the ocean with loved ones gives a greater power to the healing. I was so excited that you suggested the ocean drive. You are right! A trip over the hill needs to result in at least seeing the ocean. Thanks for suggesting that! Thanks for taking us there. And thanks . . . . ya know for everything!
