I’m impressed with myself that I got up the mountain so early!

Podcast Recap

It’s been more weeks then usual since I hiked up the mountain to my next to upper Zen spot and recorded a show for you. It’s partly because I’m learning to let things go a little more, partly my busy life and partly the dang heat that’s been knocking me for a loop here in Southern CA. A BIG thank you to all of the active Amazon shoppers in all three countries where I have links that support the show. I ask for prayers and positive thoughts for Mark’s special relative. I let go of mindless, automatic eating. We hear from a couple of BCs we haven’t heard from in a while, Helen from the UK and Jo, who is originally from the UK, but who now lives and works in Asia. I read a blog post I wrote about letting things go called ‘Baby Steps out of a List Slump’. We hear Dawny’s reaction to our last show in her own words via Speakpipe. More comment reactions from Fionna, our talented songwriter, Stéfanie from Quebec and Dave, who asks Mark a question. We initiate a brand new feature called the BC Bravery Sports Report. Dawny tells what wogging her half marathon felt like. Mark answers BC Dave’s question. A sound sample from my new big girl mic in my newly completed recording space. It’s a poem I wrote titled, ‘I thought I was hungry’. I list ways I know if I’m hungry or not.

Man I’m tired today! But I’m glad the weather is cooler than it’s been of late as I sit near the podcast tree which is beginning to drop its shade-giving leaves.

Podcast Recap

Surprise! After waking early I head to the podcast rock even though just the day before I had recorded a long interview with Alen Standish. Letting go of internal fear is one of the topics of the day. I share my latest bravery news. Thanks to the newest Coffee Klatch subscriber and to Amazon shoppers in the USA, Canada and UK! Welcome to new brave companion Marquita who posted her story on Day 71. An update from Alana on Facebook with her reactions about housework and catching up with the show episodes. Cheryl has a question for us based on Stéfanie from Quebec’s comment on day 73 about what’s under our reactions to unsolicited advice. Another great comment conversation between Helen from the UK and Amy from Wisconsin on Day 72 about intuitive eating. Stéfanie from Quebec asks her secret topic of the day about what’s under the fear of emptiness?
A large and straggly tree.

The podcast tree. I usually pick which rock to sit and podcast from under it depending on the amount of shade. Today was cool, so I could just sit where it was comfortable.
