Quite rapidly the weather has changed. Literally over night, the evening temperatures are down to the 40's and our daytime highs are in the upper 50's.  Time to break out the warm clothes and cuddle.  It is also time to practice being in the present moment.  We can dwell in the place of wanting the [...]

Advice from Ellen DeGeneresBrought to You by TearsEllen stopped by today (via an article in the Good Housekeeping Magazine, September 2017) to share some of her lessons on kindness.  This is resonating with me this week as I think about ways to help others locally and far away.  In my yoga classes, I've been sharing [...]

Sweetness in LifeI am just not that into birthdays - others yes, my own, no.  It is not that I am in denial but I feel like everyday is another opportunity to be here celebrating my time on this green planet.  So while this is my Big "50", I chillaxed about it.  I did however, [...]

5 Minutes of PeaceOur household has grown to two cats.  Oreo and Maxine have not been the best of friends since Oreo's arrival 3 weeks ago but we feel that even these 5 minutes of peaceful coexistence is enough.  Enough to actually feel that it will work out okay for all parties.

April 16 Restore Series

A topsy turvy world we live in.  I tried and tried to get my head around what happened on Monday in Boston but couldn't.  I then realized that maybe I didn't have to at that moment or at any moment.  Violence, hate - all leave a bad taste in my mouth and are not indigenous [...]

I had a certain feeling of deja vu this afternoon as the rain poured down on our first day of the series.  We experienced such weather during our April series.  There is something so conducive to a rainy day restorative practice.  So welcome all to your post-game wrapup (it is football season!).  This blog is [...]
