Conscious Strokes – A mindful, yogic, vegan, kayaking blog

Let that shit go

My Lady and I spent the past weekend in Northern Minnesota. We were at a yoga retreat organized by our local studio. The location was beautiful. Nestled on the shore of Lower Whitefish Lake, replete with sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets and sumptuous accommodations. Never having attended a yoga retreat before, we felt a little lost at first, with no previous experience of the laid back, relaxed manner in which the weekend played out.

Separation of Concerns (SoC)

Why start another blog? My original blog was a deeply personal therapeutic outpouring of my mental journey recovering from the unexpected divorce from my starter wife. Whilst very cathartic, it became apparent that it was no longer serving me well to have that journey in public so I deleted it a decade ago. Since then I have maintained a kayak focused blog, more specifically one about Greenland style kayak rolling.
