I try a new selfie angle in order to capture the pretty pink flowers behind me at the start of the trail. 8:30 AM and ALREADY hot as blazes!
It’s early morning on the mountain and already HOT AS BLAZES. I let go of thinking about my body every 6 seconds and replace that with gratitude. This month’s iTunes 5-star review writers and some of their reviews. Smooches for each. Also thanks to Canadian and UK Amazon shoppers. We hear from Shea, Dave and Dawny with comments about day 115. Dawny goes on the bravery report for completing a half-marathon! Mark reads his favorite poem, If by Rudyard Kipling. Our resident BC Songwriter extraordinaire, Fionna Lane, shares one of her latest songs, Maybe, and the inspiration behind it. We catch up with Amy from WI and talk about posting statuses. Then we flip the format and welcome our newest BC Charm at the end of the show, because she teaches me something about gratitude. We send heartfelt well wishes to a person in Charm’s life.
I make use of stacked boulders and add various sized rocks to represent the different challenges Charm’s acquaintance is facing and the good wishes we’re sending.
Mark records his favorite poem for Laurie’s Stories in our ever changing guest room/recording studio.

Maybe this is it
‘Cause it just feels right, right?
I’ve searched the sea
And combed the sands all night
Then I heard my heart
Thought I heard it cry, cry
Maybe this is what I’ve been
searching for all my life
I have searched my soul
I have trolled the lands
I have held each precious
gemstone in my hands
But I never found
What I thought I’d find
I am looking for a love to last
for all time
They say that you don’t get what you want
But what you need
It’s funny when you retrace your steps
You’re following your own lead.
I have worn my pearls
Like the pretty girls
But they didn’t end up being
Pearls of wisdom
And I’ve tried and failed
In my fairy tales
Gotta bring my fairy tales
To life somehow
They say you’ve got to
Forget the past
So you can grow
But sometimes what you’re hoping to learn
Is something you already know.
