The scene: Lavender Festival in Ojai. Booths, marketers, music, smells that put everyone in a blissed out relaxed state. Pretty good. I bought a red parasol. Later tonight I went to a birthday party in the country with a few friends. Live Music, Local Townies, Drumming Fire Pit Circle and Fresh Food. A night to remember.

What was Walker about today?
- Mono-meal of Fresh RIPE fruit - i only ate what had fallen on the ground in joyful abundance
Saying "No" or speaking my "Needs" is one of the most difficult things on the planet --- probably especially for my gender.
But if my mouth doesn't say "No" --- other parts of my body, being and behavior will ---> Many times to my detriment as I begin imploding to hide the truth threatening to escape!A few gems I'd like to share...treasures often guarded by a scary looking dragon who threatens to burn you alive if you venture close. He's full of Hot Air - go on IN:
- It's always kinder and easier for all involved to communicate at 'point easy' rather than 'point crisis'.
- No matter what the circumstances end up looking like as a result of sharing my truth, at least I can breathe again.
- Leaving out my truth, Leaves Me out of the equation ---> which means authentic joy, love, and intimacy are out of the question.
- Lies and Withholding hurt more.
- My BEST times in life were a result of being ridiculously honest and vulnerable with someone.

What was Walker about today?
What did I discover today?
Everything in life wants the best for us.
Even if it has a hurtful way of showing it - the pain guides us back home.
Back to the Flow we Go.
Hopefully sooner, than later.
It feels like Life has a Dream for me, for you, for all of us....
We were the dream weavers, before our time here began. Some call it Destiny.
The nature of Destiny I believe, is flexible -
We influence our future not yet written.
And there is an internal compass guiding us along the route laden with our deepest and oldest dreams coming true.
