Hiking in Sedona


We head it at 6am. 



And follow the trails so interesting to see these houses camouflaged into the landscape. 



Today we passed a Stupa . 




And the amazing Red Rocks in every direction. 




Felt like this Red Rock was sending us a kiss. 
So Grateful and Happy to be here. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Back in Arizona



Such an interesting State. 



I woke at 5am and decided to take a walk. 



And feel the desert heat. 


Such beautiful flowers. 





And interesting ‘seed pods’ I have never seen these before!!!




See again the desert cactus. 



Spotted a tram, 



And a local buss. 



Looking forward to my time in Sedona. Heading there this morning. 
Feeling very blessed and grateful. 🙏💕♥️

Just a few reasons I love these taichi journeys


The sun was trying its best to break through as I drive West.





The homeward journey was stunning, 




Patches of blue,





Amidst  billowing clouds, 





Felt, dreamlike, otherworldly.






and perfect, 





The Paps looked so beautiful and I felt  very Happy after a wonderful day of taichi in Castletownbere.

Nano Nagle Place


I’ve been driving past on my way to Tai Chi as the restoration work progressed. 


Today I had time to pay a short visit. 



Climbed the steps to the garden. 



Tranquil and quiet with a feeling of the  convent stillness. 



Found the Cafe, 



Couldn’t resist a sweet treat. 



While  I pondered the perfection of the the window. 



The whole building and sterple beyond. 



So happy to see this space open . I’m looking forward to a longer visit soon as taichi was calling and I had to leave.
