Blowing In The Wind

The windy fall days leave me untethered, longing for something to sink my teeth into. Longing for meaningful projects. I assumed removing myself from the noise of social media would give me levity and a sense of freedom. Do I feel a sense of relief? No. Am I still bombarded with news? Yes. Does theContinue reading “Blowing In The Wind”

Social Media Detox

Scrolling, scrolling, losing track of time. What is everyone up to? Where are the cute dogs? Maybe I will find some yoga inspiration. Down time, pick up my phone and find the social media. Mainly Facebook and Instagram. I find myself sitting in the same place after twenty minutes, maybe even an hour. Where hasContinue reading “Social Media Detox”

Being Content With Letting Go

Last Thursday, I attended my regular Bhakti yoga class, masked up and in person, the theme for the class was Santosha or contentment. Santosha is part of the eight limbs of yoga. The first two limbs are The Yamas (restraints, moral disciplines or moral vows, how we show up in the world) and The NiyamasContinue reading “Being Content With Letting Go”

Everyday Is A New Beginning

Everyday is a new beginning. Take a deep breath and start again. It seems I have taken a bit of a summer hiatus on my blog writing. Often I have felt self doubt or lack of inspiration to get back here. I have also found myself busy with other tasks, not taking the time toContinue reading “Everyday Is A New Beginning”

The Day Has Come

I never wanted this day to come. I loved living in the camper and innocently I thought we could hold on to it for many years to come. But we never wanted it to be the rotted out camper that goes out to pasture, and as we noticed small issues here and there, we knewContinue reading “The Day Has Come”

What Do You Love About Yourself?

Last week, I had a lovely mid week get away, with fully vaccinated friends. We talked, we laughed, we walked, we did yoga, I twisted my ankle, we ate lots of food and enjoyed each other’s company in a super beautiful and relaxing setting. When you are able to hang out uninterrupted with your bestContinue reading “What Do You Love About Yourself?”

Take A Moment…

There is a lot of talk about mindfulness and meditation these days. An opportunity to connect and recenter. But mindfulness doesn’t always have to mean a silent retreat and you don’t always have to meditate on a cushion in your private yoga sanctuary. While these might be wonderful ways to get away, they are notContinue reading “Take A Moment…”

Earth Day Poem

In my yoga classes this week, I read a poem by Stephanie Kaza, (writer, practicing Soto Zen Buddhist, and active proponent of religious dialogue. @https://www.stephaniekaza.com/) This beautiful poem resonated me, not only for Earth Day, but as a way to honor our body and all it does as we move through our lives on theContinue reading “Earth Day Poem”

Coming Home

Moving, organizing, getting settled. I took a break from the blog last week because I was bit overwhelmed, now I am feeling a bit more grounded in my space. For me it felt like home since the moment we walked in. The laundry is loud, the space is small, there is barely any storage, butContinue reading “Coming Home”

It’s Been A Year

*Photo from Seattle Art Museum last March, I don’t know the artist but I love the colors, the images and the peacefulness of this piece. In early March of last year, I decided I was going to do more. I was going to get out more, explore more, find things to do on my own,Continue reading “It’s Been A Year”
