Good Morning !
I want to share an email I got from Adrienne in New Zealand…
She and her husband live on a yacht and she shared this amazing story with me about stargazing…
She is living her version of The Remembering!
I’ve got nearly 100 radical people coming to Santa Teresa this weekend for an Animal-Based Retreat… we are going sailing too!
Love you all,
There’s so many of your emails I’d love to reply to, but I know you are a busy man, so I haven’t.
Until now, cos I’ve had a few wines (despite being mostly carnivore 😉😋) and some fried chicken hearts.
My husband and I live in New Zealand and are probably as frustrated with the same things others in our carnivore tribe are - over-reaction to COVID, pushing the COVID vaccines (which we will avoid tooth and nail), vilification of the meat industry etc etc.
Anyway, for the past 9 years we have lived on our 46ft yacht.
We have learnt to be relatively self sufficient.
We have sailed to the pacific islands (Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu & New Caledonia) for two seasons, and then spent 14 months in the Mediterranean on another boat before returning to NZ just before COVID hit.
We then discovered low carb, then keto, then carnivore and have never felt better.
Unfortunately we now feel trapped.
We don’t want to have the gene therapy injections/vaccines which means our travel is limited.
So what does that have to do with star gazing?
In 2017, after 5 months in the South Pacific tropical paradise, we had to sail back to NZ to escape cyclone season.
We set sail from Noumea, New Caledonia.
We spent 6 days at sea and had the most wonderful passage (2 of our other 3 subsequent passages were not so wonderful).
Sailing “2 up” meant we would have 3 hours on watch, 3 hours off.
Yeah I know - not good for your circadian rhythm!
But, you soon get into it and your body learns to go to sleep very quickly when needed.
This passage was one of my favourites because I had the midnight to 3am watch.
I would lie in the cockpit on my back and stare up at the stars - oh my god - soooo many stars.
Just imagine - you are in the Pacific Ocean - about 360 miles from any civilisation.
There is NO light pollution.
So as you can only imagine, you can see about a gazillion million trillion stars.
It’s is a very humbling experience to finally comprehend how small we are in comparison to not only Earth, but the size of this whole thing called the galaxy, let alone the universe.
So yes, in answer to your question - have I tried star gazing? Yes I have, and it’s amazing! And radical!
Lots of love, hugs and NZ grass fed lamb and beef rib eye!! 🤤
