Mixing Things Up

Time to mix things up

Some days do you get the feeling that it’s time to mix things up? Make a new cake? Challenge the status quo?

Today was one of those days.

I took my sturdiest, shiniest tool to the shore.

My sturdiest tool

I started at the south cove where the wind wasn’t so strong, thinking I’d have the best chance to stir something up without tipping over.

Tried the south cove

I gave it a go. I watched the fisherman casting his line, as if that might inform the sweep of my arm.

Watched the fisherman

It didn’t have quite the right energy. I wanted more of a ripple.

I sat down, perplexed, and pulled some seaweed out of the blades.

Perplexed

This was going to take more courage, and the right kind of wind.

So I tromped ‘round the bend and a gust of promise said Yes!

The wind said YES!

I dug in my heels and set the wheel to be ready.

Set for the ready.

And I waited for just the right moment.

It’s hard to stir up an ocean

It’s hard to stir up an ocean, but if you start at just the right moment, you have a good chance. It’s that pause between breaths . . . as if high tide needs to sneeze.

A bird friend give me a nod, without making me feel he was watching or judging.

He just showed me how he likes to fly, using the wind as a tool.

Encouraged, I mixed.

I mixed and I mixed.

And I mixed. And I mixed.

I don’t know if the ocean noticed my efforts. But something shifted inside me.

mixing-up - 24

Energized.
Effervescent.

mixing-up - 25

Yet peaceful. Satisfaction.

Satisfaction.

Because I took action.
