When the world turns black…

Sometimes life throws you a curveball, and sometimes that curveball is actually a cannon ball, and it’s been covered in gasoline, lit on fire and thrown directly into your heart.  Grief is a strange thing, it’s completely universal, and totally personal.  And sometimes, in the depths of it, you truly … Read more

$110 and three demerit points…

So, I got a ticket, it cost me $110 and three demerit points.  I’ve never had a demerit point before, in fact, I didn’t even know how the whole demerit point system worked before this ticket, I can tell you now though.  Generally, I am a very good driver however, … Read more

108 ways to spring clean…

Years ago, I was working a crazy job, with crazy hours and really didn’t have much else going on.  So, through much pondering and discussion I decided to adopt a dog.  I was pretty specific with what I was looking for.  I wanted a blonde, female lab type dog approximately … Read more

The Seventh Sense…

Do you remember growing up learning about your five senses? Maybe you can even still picture the cardboard cut-outs on your kindergarten wall with the drawings of sight, taste, smell, sound and touch.  Who knew that neurologists believe we have between 9 and 21 senses, perhaps some did, but I … Read more

Jedi Mind Tricks

Got Class?

There’s a saying that the hardest thing about a yoga class is getting there.  I find this particularly true in December and January.  Life is busy, the weather is cold and taking care of ourselves tends to take a back seat.  While there are a lot of great reasons to … Read more

‘Tis the season…

Oh, the holidays.  I love the holidays, there are lots of magical moments, great and small.  So from the moment Starbucks starts serving their Christmas blend, I start plotting and planning with joy.  But then, the expectations start to pile up, the to-do lists starts to grow and quite honestly, … Read more

Salute That Sun!

There is this theory out there in the yoga world, or maybe in the whole world, that the more you practice gratitude the more content you will be in your own life; and that gratitude is a muscle that if flexed on a regular basis, grows.  I’ve been thinking about … Read more

Well, I’m Slim Shady…

Have you ever lost your mojo?  Your self-confidence?  Your aplomb?  It happened to me a few weeks ago. I was sort of drifting, more emotional than usual (and ask around, that’s pretty emotional), just feeling unsure.  This may sound silly to some, but honestly I kind of lost my pluck. … Read more
