into the forest i go


spending half my days in the forest these days.
losing my mind (lost my mind)
finding my soul (and my body)
i’m all body. a soul in a body.
remembering the first night
when we met lately
crying like i was all tears and pain and sadness.
making love felt different then ever before.
no yesterday, no tomorrow.
only now.

me, all body.
listening to my soul, speaking through my body.
i am so aware of my body, its needs, its sensations.
experiencing everything inside me in such a physical way … fears and happiness, love and yearning, missing and peace … showing me especially how many fear there is inside of me.
and how much yearning …

just feeling it, not thinking very much, letting it come, letting it go.

me, all body.
raw. wild.
want to lose even more of my civilized mind = fears.
want to act much more from my belly, my heart.
want to LIVE even more in the MOMENT. no tomorrow. only NOW.





into the forest i go
to lose my mind
and find my soul

western riding

i finally found a training stable for western riding near here. it’s in elmenhorst, about half an hour by car. even better, m & me can both ride there, at the same time. yay 🙂
i love this way of riding. of interacting with the horse.
& … not only that riding is great physical exercise. it is so much more. kind of therapy. for me. makes me be totally “now”.


i am really happy to see how the days are getting longer and that it is becoming a little bit warmer these days! spring is coming 🙂

for many weeks now i feel i need much more sleep … usually i perfectly get along with 5 to 6 hours of sleep, but in winter … so dark and cold … well, it is just natural to go to sleep when it is dark, instead of staying up and trying to work. fortunately, i know that my energy will rise again!

i also find it harder to do some sports in winter. when it is really cold outside, i don’t even want to leave house for a walk. usually, i am jumping on my trampoline in the morning, first thing on getting up, and doing some exercises afterwards, like sit-ups and pushups. a few weeks ago i bought bar-bells to do some more exercises for my neck and shoulders, but somehow i don’t manage to use them regularly.

since yesterday, we have a pull-up bar in out kitchen door. up to now, i don’t even make ONE pull-up but hopefully this will change soon 🙂

the kids love the bar … everybody uses it whenever passing!

of course there are lots of things … i like to call them everyday-sports … like carrying my daughter, running to follow her when biking, carrying crates of fruit and so on … but this does not seem to be enough. how do YOU exercise? how do you make it to exercise enough, especially together with small children?
