    4/52: Holding a beach-inspired yoga fundraiser for Ocean Cure 

    This is an adventure with a history and a purpose and a future … my most exciting one to date.

    It all started with a long-awaited adventure in August 2009. After years of saying I wanted to learn how to surf, I decided that I was really going to learn how to surf. (You know how sometimes you get so obsessed with a dream that you forget that all it takes is, um, just doing it?) I chose Indo Jax Surf School, based in Wilmington, NC, because of its commitment to providing charity surf camps through its non-profit, Ocean Cure. I was happy that my tuition for the camp would support future charity camps.

    After an amazing week of surfing with some fantastic instructors, I returned to Ohio knowing that I wanted to contribute more than just my week’s tuition. I felt inspired and excited and called to act. After brainstorming with the director about how a land-locked Ohioan could help, I decided that I would attempt to raise enough money to fund at least one charity camp in 2010 by holding beach-inspired yoga classes in Ohio and Kentucky. I’d never attempted anything like this before.

      Wow, that is great! You’re right to feel proud. How are you thinking of promoting your next event?

    • eatveggiesdrinkwine 10:17 pm on February 2, 2010 Permalink

      Thanks! I think the yoga studio will draw more people because there’s already a good base of students, and it was promoted through a newsletter this week. I’ve been creating and mailing posters to studios and businesses that may cater to yogis, plus contacting newspapers and radio stations. And, I’ve been letting people hang flyers (this is an accomplishment — i usually have a hard time accepting help) and shamelessly inviting everyone I know. It’s a lesson in assertiveness for me … one I definitely need. But, it feels easier to ask for money when it’s not for me, and also when I feel like I’m giving people something in return.

    As a dyed in the wool hedonist. I hold firm to the belief that each and every day must, by necessity, hold some sort of pleasure, This could take tjhe form of something relatively small and indirect such as my pleasure at reading my daughters post this morning, expressing her joy at waking to birdsong outside her window. or something other, such as an invitation to dine with good friends. Rarely, quite rarely, are we so lucky as to find the pleasure of a new passion. For this weeks adventure, I decided to unearth my husbands compound bow and learn how to shoot it. After the rather large setback of finding myself lacking the necessary strenght to draw the bow, I was finally granted with the aid of said husbands muscle and the patience of my sons character (he nocked my arrows) the incredible satisfaction of releasing that damm arrow toward its target! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!! I was however able to hit the backdrop once before losing the last arrow into the woods. I’M HOOKED!!!! I WENT SHOPPING FOR MY OWN BOW TODAY!!!!! My thanks to Club 52 for the challenge!

    Oy! I just typed this long narractive about my last adventure and when I tried to upload/insert a photo it had an error and erased everything. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time so here’s the abridged version. My Week 4 Adventure was taking my two lovely golden retrievers to the Malibu Dog Beach (note: one of my ladies is blind). It was over an hour drive, about a half hour walk to figure out which part of the beach was dog friendly, and then an afternoon of racing up and down the beach, getting pulled into the water and getting soaking wet (I was not in a bathing suit and the water was freezing- it is the Pacific in January), and avoiding getting a ticket for letting my doggies off their leashes. Quite an adventure! Next time I think we’ll try Huntington Beach since they have an off-leash section.

    If on a winter’s night, some artwork 

    The venerable Emmie Tsumara (adventure participant hailing from the bustling city of Hiroshima) created this darling 52 Adventures emblem.

    I feel like I’m lost in a dream sequence every time I look at it.  I.am.gushing.

    Thank you Ms. Emmie!

      ADORE this! I could gaze at it all night. Totally resonates with my love of/for the ocean.

    #5: Classic Horror Triple Feature 

    My love-hate relationship with creepy movies has a simple cause: they work way too well on me. It’s one thing when the story’s good, but even the most embarrassing plot twist leaves me clutching at my chest. I appreciate the craft of creepiness. I’m always on the lookout for written horror or suspense. My favorite author of all time is Shirley Jackson, who wrote the short story “The Lottery”—you know, the oft-anthologized high school English staple where New England villagers gossip about the big event that will happen that afternoon (I won’t spoil the uninitiated, but there’s a link at the bottom of the post).

    Movies are different. Without my imagination to mediate, I’m at the mercy of shrill string soundtracks and ghouls leaping suddenly onscreen. I can’t really hold my own, dignity-wise. As the wise friend I’ve deemed my official horror movie ambassador will attest, I make noises.

    Week 5 – Polar Plunge 

    One of my earliest best friends in life was Richard Cypher (this is a fictional name I am using to hide the true identity of my friend because I am not sure if he wants me to talk about him on an online website).  For the first many, many years of my life, he was like a brother to me.  I spent more days and weeks than I could ever remember over at his house, playing night games with Richard, his brothers and sisters, and the other neighborhood kids.  Over time, I grew apart from him (as we all have from many childhood friends).  But the few times I have seen him since school, he still always manages to put a smile on my face and make me wish that I had kept in better contact with him throughout these past years.

    Week 4 – Lifestyle 

    I wouldn’t say that my life is going in the wrong direction.  I wouldn’t say that I am out of shape.  I wouldn’t say that I am lost in the world, that I am misguided, that I have my priorities mixed up, or anything of the sort.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t try to improve my life and lifestyle.

    That cliche saying, “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it,” is sometimes just bullshit.  My life isn’t broken.  But parts of it, I feel, should be fixed.  For example, as I said, I am not out of shape. But that doesn’t mean I am in shape.  I can do something about that.  I can easily adjust parts of my life to work towards getting into shape.  My relationship with my fiance isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination.  But I can make it better.  I can be a better man for her.

    My week 2 adventure of looking at my relationship with my fiance made me think about doing that with my life in general.  My life is drastically changing in front of my eyes.  Sometimes, I need to pull a Ferris Bueller and just look around, enjoy the things I have and love the fact that I am a very blessed human being.  But at times, I need to keep chugging along with it so I don’t get left behind in the dust.  I need to adapt and change so that I can continue to grow, so that I don’t become stagnant.  And if I start making the changes now, at the beginning of the year, the rest of these adventures will be more meaningful to me.

    This week was another thoughtful one for me.  I put many, many hours into thinking about how I can change as a person to make not only my life, but those around me more fulfilling.  Not very exciting at the moment, but if I can stick with my plans, the excitement will grow in my everyday life.
