I am so lucky! I was invited to speak at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona. My good friend, Lynne, came with me. Well, we have had the best time, but we have never, not for one minute known where we were going!! We have been lost every time we leave a building .We can’t find the next building nor, can we stop laughing. First of all, this is the most wonderful place! They have hundreds and hundreds of acres. How did we think we could just get up the first morning and take our own walk and find our way? Well we couldn’t! We could not find our way back to the Ranch property, let alone our rooms! We walked for hours in a development called Canyon Estates and felt we would never have food or water again. We couldn’t stop laughing!! We finally came upon a man who helped us get back to the property and then it took us another hour to find our rooms. It turns out we are right near not only each other but also the Club House and the spa. Who knew?
The classes and treatments they offer are amazing! Everything from a talk about your dreams to a treatment called Watsu. If you have never have that particular treatment , find out where they have them in your town and get it. You climb into a warm pool (inside a building) and a teacher takes you for an hour and massages you and moves your body all around. This is all done in 90 degree water. No talking. There’s music in the background
I felt somewhere between, I had died and gone to heaven. I was just born in my mother’s arms. I don’t think I will ever forget it.
Now, to address the aging part of this trip. I was here thirty years ago. I remember I ran from class to class , hiking, running, finding every kind of dancing class there was. This time I went to meditation, had nice walks, got my feet checked, did Watsu and hung out. The closest I got to a dancing class was when Lynne and I were lying at the pool and I looked at my watch and saw it was ten minutes after the hour, and said “There goes Zumba”! And you know what? I didn’t even feel guilty. It’s a great place to just restore your energy too. And that’s what I did! I hope I can find the desk tomorrow to check out , If not, I just might stay here forever!
Not a bad thing!!
