Seekers in Stanley

We are little beings in big spaces. 

Amanda, Zoe and I headed up to Stanley Lake to spend the night, swim, and cherish the warmth summer brings and the adventure summer seeks. 

Floating in fresh alpine lake water has become a much needed self-care practice of mine that has made its way to the top of the list. When I first made a conscious effort to starfish in the water, the first word I thought of: boundless. I was straddling life, laying on each side of, opposites. One of my dearest friends, soul sister, mentor, put it perfectly; to float allows one to surrender while being supported at the same time. 

Immediately following our wake-up swim, we headed to Stanley Bakery. I think knowing that hot chai and a scrumptious breakfast awaits you, makes the lake even more inviting. I will say, getting out and having to re-dress was chillier than being in the water. The morning sun touched us more than the depth the cool water could. Again, being in between the lofty and the deep, the warm and the cool, the here and there. It feels exactly where I am right now.
