There’s no question they are coming with ill intent, southern assailants slithering toward the last remnant of the northern Everglades where freshwater veins lead to an unspoiled buffet.
The invasive Burmese python, which infests Everglades National Park, has yet to be seen inside the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge west of Boynton Beach.

It was a showdown with Florida flair - a Martin County business with billionaire backing versus a 77-year-old environmentalist with a constitution as tough as Dade County Pine. For eight days, the case of mining company Lake Point Restoration against storied Everglades protector Maggy Hurchalla played out in front of a jury asked to decide whether their conflict was that of a company wronged by a conservationist’s influence, or a well-heeled entrepreneur with a grudge and the money to satisfy it in court. On Wednesday, the six-member jury sided with Lake Point, charging Hurchalla with interfering in an agreement between the company and Martin County, and levying a $4.3 million judgment against her. Hurchalla is the sister of the late US Attorney General Janet Reno.

‘When you feel like speeding up, slow down.’ wisdom I learned from @kimi_swimmy 💕 on her ‘Live Simply with Kimi’ retreat 💦 photo by @cinematowski of me slowing down in mamma ocean wearing the haku lei i made that week 🌿
So often we speed up instead of slowing down at the moments slowing down is most vital, creating more confusion and over exertion leading to exasperated attempts at ‘accomplishment’ meanwhile sacrificing peace & joy in the process. Most of us have done it at some point or another then repeated the urgency routine again with no different a result. It takes courage to slow down, and a conscious decision to remain calm in the midst of daily real life challenges. It is a skill and one I am enjoying learning more about & through mindful practices every day 🤗
Kimi really helped me to overcome some deep fears I had about free diving, and living. I am so fortunate to have shared in an life changing week at the @uluwatusurfvillas with Kimi and a group of amazing people that are still inspiring me through their own personal victories. together with Kimi's care and expert guidance we learned to completely relax with some of her personal freediving techniques, let go of our fears and weave beauty in to our daily lives though simplicity.
Do keep a look out for @kimi_swimmy upcoming retreats they truly are life changing and life enriching. Mahalo nui for all the blessings you bestowed up us Kimi, Happy Aloha Sunday brave souls, stay wild, go slow & live simply xx
