Music to our ears

WOW. I am fresh off the high from spending Saturday afternoon and evening with Sean Johnson and the amazing musicians of The Wild Lotus Band. We spent the beautiful five o’clock hour in Sean’s “Soul Flow” to the live accompaniment of Alvin Young on fretless bass and Gwendolyn Colman on percussion. I have discovered a […]

Enlighten Up!

I love the title of this new documentary. It is SOOO easy to take oneself too seriously. As I addressed in my last posting on FUN, having more of it has been my goal this month. Since then I have attended a Venus Party (I wore an orange wig and gave out Mardi Gras beads), […]

It’s the Start of Something New

Starting something new can be the HARDEST THING. Your first yoga class, a blind date, a home practice, you fill in the blank! It took me at least five years of taking yoga classes to finally commit to the elusive home practice. The key, for me, was to do it first thing in the morning. […]
