Beach Walk 200 – Just Another Day

It’s our 200th show and for most of you, 9-11.

h3. About Today’s Show

Anniversaries and milestones tend to be gathering points for all kinds of energy. One kind is pressure and so today we are breaking the energy. The #2s tend to make a big deal out of these anniversaries, pulling in all sorts of energy from the past and plenty of expectations for the future. Sometimes I find it helpful to remember it’s just another day. I can choose whether to track the mainstream media who are focusing on the World Trade Center Bombing or to track my own inner experience of today or both. And I just may go listen to Arundhati Roy who reminds us that 9-11-2001 is not the only momentous 9-11.

There is no question there are people who are out to destroy others. This is nothing new. The tactics are new; our interconnectedness more apparent than ever. The game of cat and mouse enthralls many and is leaking over into many of our lives – those of us who are neither cat nor mouse. I have no way of knowing if my life will cross paths with those who are bent on killing. I choose how to live my life until that moment, which may never occur. We share the same planet, but live in so many diverse realities.

Would you like to submit a guest Beach Walks episode? We’d like to start featuring new voices (and take my mom’s advice to take a day off now and then.)

If you would like to submit a show, here are the guidelines:
* 3-5 minutes in length
* On a beach or not
* With a dog or not
* Spreading aloha – or positive energy
* Podsafe music (if you want to use music)
* No copyrighted material unless you have written permission please

Post your file online (preferably a “.mov”), send us the link, and we’ll wrap the Beach Walks theme around it and feature it in an upcoming episode!
