One of my New Year’s “resolutions” if you can really call it that was to experience more “flow” this year. Flow is the feeling you have when you become so engrossed in something fun or meaningful to you that you lose your sense of time, not wanting to stop and eat/drink, etc. Now get your mind out of the gutter. I’m talking about hobbies and activities.
Killing 30 minutes last night we stumbled upon some kind of stupid tv show called “Diggers.” Two hokey annoying guys do nothing but go around with their metal detectors trying to unearth lost treasures.
I didn’t care for the show and it’s hokeyness but the metal detecting??? Hell yeah! I don’t know why for sure but that seems like a lot of fun to me. Talk about experiencing flow?! I guess it goes hand in hand with the fact that my entire career has involved WWII history and I’m enthralled and endlessly fascinated by genealogy. I don’t sit around reading history books or watching period movies much. However, the older I get the more interesting history becomes.
I REALLY want to find a good used metal detector and give it a shot. Wish I knew someone with some old acreage around here…there’s a lot of civil war history around here.
The thrill of the hunt and the find is calling my name.
Loving this app on my phone! So much variety! For someone who gets bored SUPER fast with workouts this is pretty cool. You can even set your workouts to whatever music you already have loaded in your phone. Or no music. I did a shoulder ripper workout last night. Ok, well, I really did about HALF the workout. My upper body strength is that of a flea.
If you’re looking for FREE various workouts to increase strength I would definitely recommend downloading this app.
1. The Way - all thumbs up. It was exactly what I needed to watch last night. AWESOMEly filmed, directed, acted. I loved the personal connections the Sheens/Estevezes have to the story of The Way (Camino de Santiago) in northern Spain. For someone fascinated by the AT and the PCT and the CDT seeing the European comparable was a treat. Inspiring movie. Enjoyed every second of it.
2. The Resident - wellllll, if there’s a movie out there for making a case of NOT living alone in an apartment building, this one would be it for me. Doubly-so for a woman. UGH. YUCK. CREEEEPPPPPPY. It was also weird seeing someone I think is so attractive (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) play such a twisted person.
“You don’t choose a life, you live one.” - The Way, a movie directed by Emilio Estevez starring Martin Sheen. It is a movie filled with heart, beauty, freedom and inspiration. Consider renting it this weekend. It may just help you find your way. Prayers Work.
One of the best movies made in a very long time. Loved every second of it.
