Ocean and Mountains
Here David and I sit, on the 27th floor of a beautiful glass building by the sea, over looking the city of Vancouver with the snow capped mountains in the distance. It is amazing up here, I feel like a queen in a sci-fi story looking down on boats coming in and out of the harbor, seeing the sun reflected off neighboring buildings, and seeing the cars from way high up like a bird. But really my aunt Kitty and cousin Cecily who live up here are the Queens, and my Uncle Mike the King. I am the happy guest. We are staying with my Oma (that is Dutch for Grandmother) but she doesn't have Internet access, so here we are to do our work for the day.
We are here trying to figure out how to get me (the Canadian) across the border, as I was denied access yesterday. There seems to be a lot for us to learn about paperwork, and about a cross-border marriage, but we are staying positive and have high hopes that things will shift over the next few days. Seems that getting across the border as a woman who is married to an American is more difficult than we thought! It all seems a bit surreal to us still that we are not on our way back to our little, sunny palace in Arizona, but it is a good lesson in staying in the moment and remaining positive! I am visioning with all my might that I will be in Patagonia, Arizona to begin my 92 Day Juice Feast, and well before that too. Hip hip hooray!
My uncle just came in to point out the big fat moon rising above the mountains on one side of us, while the setting sun is casting its orange rays to reflect off all the buildings on the other side of us. Exquisite!
I just have to make a quick comment about all the Juice Feasting blog stars out there, and say WOW! We love you all, and thank you all for the wonderful service you are doing by sharing your experiences. I don't have time today to make a complete list of them, but please be sure to check out Melissa's Blog for a nice long list of fellow Juice Feasters, or for Juice Feasting inspiration!
Hope you are all well in Juice Land,
With Blessing and Love,
Katrina and David
