Salt pool bliss

Have you ever been to a salt pool? It’s something that I have come to love and every first Wednesday of the month, I get to go with my great – great cousin (Mom’s cousin) Dana for a four hour bliss day to the salt pool.

It feels wonderful on my aching joints and it’s a treat and time away for me. I remember the very first time, walking into the salt lake. It’s a dome pool of which you can swim outside into the open. The water has the most salt content there and literally carries you. It’s impossible to go under and I learnt quick to balance myself. Now it is soothing and therapeutic to just float along. Weightlessly, without resistance and effort.

We always have the same ritual and half way through our visit enjoy a hot Hungarian Gulasch soup with a Radler (a beer mixed with lemonade). It’s always a great time, which I always look forward to. This time we even got to slowly paddle our way outside. It’s impossible to swim in saltwater, but it was amazing that the weather held out enough for us to do so. Pretty incredible for November I’d say.



Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer and I’m not the only one. I am the one holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but has purpose. I’ve made mistakes, and I see them as a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time. In a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off of the hamster wheel to change my future. I didn’t land all that softly, but I still did it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of memories and I chase moments, instead of martial stuff. Less is more, and I prefer quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. Talking about free, I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. I find myself going against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you find a way, you soon realize that it is the only way to not lose who you are.
My past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But now I believe that the past is history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end I realize that we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard, to be accepted, and to find our spot in life. We try hard to fit in, some to the point of acting out of character, playing by the rules of what we think society expects of us. Until we wake one day, feeling empty and lost, with our life passing right in front of us. It’s never too late to change your stars, and it was my toughest moments, who turned out to be my greatest teachers.
They say that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it was darkness who has shown me the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

      1. Haha hands won’t work since you can’t go under the water. It’s so salty it would burn your eyes and your skin gets all white. You would look like a ghost lol. We usually rub our backs ever so often when they turn white and the salt serves as a great exfoliant leaving you baby soft. But I got it and you are determined. I gotta give it to you and it would be fun to watch lol.
