A tiny, tiny bubble: where does MAGIC in my 2018 appear now? I wonder because it is my word for the year. But to be honest, there's no need, or at least no urge, to wonder! There IS an all-penetrating glimmer, not so specific, it's just an overall vibration.
On my last afternoon in Málaga, I attended a yoga session by the bay, in an area called Paseo del Muelle Uno. The sunset hues would burst out wide in the sky while we do "inhalar" and "exhalar" during our poses. The language spoken was Spanish, everyone was living here after all, except for the foreign girl who insisted she needed to be in the class. I would take it, regardless not being able to speak the language. And I would let go of the need to understand from the mind. Instead follow the flow, as someone had advised me once. Abandon the need to know, instead just ~know~ as the next pose comes, as the next breathing takes place. There was something different - it was not that I was somewhere on the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun) of the Mediterranean, it wasn't that the yoga session was in Spanish. Something had loosened, so the moment had felt infinitely free. It was (is)...MAGIC. The session rooted me to the ground, and I was in the dimension wherever I was, I was there with whoever I was with, and the following days would be...lived. And loved.
My feet would warm, my socks wet from the drizzle would dry. My eyes would close from too much brightness. I would stare at the passersby and life would make sense because there is no need to smother for life's sense. Later on, the yoga class beside Farola de Málaga would begin. The teacher would roll out her words in Spanish and time & space would be fluid and the sky would be painted in purple and pumpkin. The Earth's presence would equally be my presence.
Later on, I would meet a Malagueña friend of a friend I had met in Myanmar. I would meet her friends too. And I would love them. We would drink tinto verano and eat cheap food and the whole of me would feel how good it is to dance in España. Or how good it is to just dance.
