JE NE VEUX PAS PARTIR. There's that beautiful feeling when you're snorkeling in the water, watching the currents move back and forth making the seaweed unfurl like long curls, back and forth, and it feels like you're witnessing the Earth breathing, in and out. I love that feeling. I love the water. #waterissacred
I joined Jun san, a peace activist and buddhist nun who began a 13-day, 170-mile "Water Walk for Life" on July 22, 2017 to protest a proposed dual pipeline from Albany to New Jersey. We started off with a beautiful opening water ceremony on Lenape land in Mahwah, New Jersey. With the blessing from Ramapough Lenape nation's chief and grandma at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp, water protectors began following the route of the proposed Pilgrim Pipelines. We competed 8 miles walk in 90°F weather praying and drumming yesterday.
