21st September Has Arrived…

It’s 21st September…Peace Day…may you all be blessed with peace on all levels. My project is complete, and I would like to thank all my fellow villagers that participated in my contribution to Peace One Day.   It gave me hope in humanity… that WE CAN swing the pendulum from violence to a more peaceful society.

Terrie Dahl-Thomas…thankyou for your help.

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
-Lao Tzu

Jeremy Gilley started a movement in 1999…his goal was to establish an annual day of ceasefire and non-violence on a fixed calendar day. He has successfully managed, with the help of the United Nations, to create–what is referred to as–PEACE ONE DAY.

It’s all about manifesting the largest reduction of violence ever recorded in history…AND…the greatest gathering of indivduals standing together in the name of peace. Please visit the website…peaceoneday.org/…and absorb the emotion of this special day.

So, here begins my countdown. I’m day 7, followed by pics of some of my fellow villagers everyday to promote peace on all levels…this is my contribution to a much needed cause…PEACE…send some out…on all levels.

What’ssssSUP!?!?!?!?!?!?

Surfing Rockstar, Laird Hamilton, uses it to cross train, and former World Windsurfing Champion, Mickey Eskimo, coined the phrase, “ocean’s bicycle.” Yep, I’m talking about SUP…Stand Up Paddling…the fastest growing watersport today.

It’s you…a board…a paddle…AND…a waterway of your choice. Aaahhh, gently gliding over the soft chop of the Bay with nature as your tour guide tuning you into the flow of the current. It’s simplicity and connection…that’s the gift of Stand Up Paddling.

BUT…it can also be a hard core workout, burning anywhere from 600-1000 calories an hour, with a unique muscular challenge that you won’t find in any other sport.

COWABUNGA!!!! SIGN ME UP!!!

Tampa Bay SUP is here in the village and they are ready to help you with your Stand Up experience. They provide lessons, rentals, tours and sales…they’re mobile so they can come to you, which is another plus. Their goal…everyone feels safe and has fun.

I highly reccommend starting off with a lesson to get basic strokes and techniques down before venturing out. Kim and her staff are very thorough with their instruction, AND…that will give you more confidence as you frolic OVER the water viewing schools of fish, manatees and dolphin frolicking UNDER the water.

Tampa Bay SUP is certified by the World Paddle Association, and they are located in Philippe Park, Safety Harbor Marina and on Clearwater Beach. Kayaks are available also, and there is a pick up and delivery service to neighboring hotels and condos.

Pictured here is Hildy, one of the instructors, who enthusiastically helped me rise to my feet on my first SUP experience. Getting the information for this post with the owner, Kim, was done by sitting on paddleboards…out in the water…drinking in the beautiful canvas that nature provided…a great boardroom…don’t ya think?

Why not give them a ringy-dingy and set up your first SUP lesson and get ready to take a stroll…ON THE WATER–that is.
