Wet Lines,  Empty Mind…a mountain yogi’s funny fish tale…

ilg has been steadfastly stalking this huge, beautiful Trout Being for the past several weeks in a not-so-secluded pool just off the Colorado Trail near my childhood home up Junction Creek Canyon, Durango, Colorado. i’ve been in my Zendo, applying not only the mandatory Mantra’s for the safety of any harming ilg might cause, but also the Zen Archery technique to catching (and releasing) this beautiful Trout for weeks…visualizing which fly i’m going use, my approach, what time of the morning, my presentation of cast, the drift, the mend…you know, all the other 10,000 Things which keep fly fisherpeople like ilg awake at night…well, FINALLY, the Universe aligned Herself so this new, old Daddy could combine a training run with yet another ninja assault upon my Present Precious Trout Podium Being…the girls left the house early enough and i was alone!!! so, of course, i picked up a burrito to go and a pear (a pear?) along with my Ilg Supreme from Sunrider Herbs…that’s when the hilariousness of the Divine began…

Morning Runs; the karmic seat of my Soul…

9:42 am: when ilg runs? the simplest, most fragile of things open my heart, filet it wide open, and my spirit just soars into Father Sky…what IS IT about running feet massaging Mother Earth that shakes our Chakra’s so?! who CARES about health, longevity, fitness? to be able to run along the treasured forested paths is ENOUGH by itself! ilg hasn’t been running through decades because i reckon it might tack on a few more years to my incarnation…ilg runs because running is Pilgrimage, it’s more than the Seat of my Soul, it’s the Karmic SWEAT OF MY SOUL!
