rise up nimbly

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

To be on another journey feels so great.


As Rumi says:

Rise up nimbly

and go on your strange journey

to the ocean of meanings.


The stream knows

it can’t stay on the mountain.

Leave and don’t look away

from the sun as you go,

in whose light

you’re sometimes crescent,

sometimes full.


Ride for the Rainforest 2011

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Tomorrow, Dan and I head 7 degrees north of the Equator to Ride for the Rainforest.

Ride for the Rainforest is a bike ride across Sri Lanka to raise money for Rainforest Rescue, our favourite not-for-profit organisation, who are committed to Protecting Rainforests Forever.

It will be awesome, and we can’t wait!

This is the first big bike ride we’ve done since RideHimalaya… We’re leading a group of 9 Australian cyclists 300 kilometres, from the ancient city of Kandy, to the highest point on the island, Nuwara Eliya, into the Sinharaja rainforest, and down to the coast at Galle.

So over the next couple of weeks, think of us, sitting in those saddles for eight hours a day, puffing up those steep mountain tracks, and free-wheeling back down again with the wind on our faces. We love it!
