Day 198 of 365…Just Being

Give me some time for just being. Being in the moment with no worries, no fears, no lack. Give me some time to breathe in the air, big thirsty gulps easing into tiny sips like tea from a china cup. Give me the sun and the moon and the stars and sand to sink into…

Day 196 of 365…

Don’t you sometimes feel like you were born on the wind? Like you were meant to move and change like the seasons? Like there’s something right there, right there just within fingertips reach? When the wind stirs don’t you feel it in your soul? Is it just me? Meet me back here tomorrow.

Day 194 of 365 Sundays and Sunflowers

July 14th. My cousin always says after the 4th summer is over.

Day 191 of 365 Days of Yoga

Second day practicing my Int. Ashtanga and I am so so so happy! If ever there was a doubt I’d stick to my practice none is left. I missed it for nine days and almost went crazy for it lol. I like the primary series too. I re-acquainted myself with it during my suspended Intermediate…

Day 190 of 365 Days of Body Mind and Spirit

Today I practiced my beloved Intermediate Ashtanga! I had to modify a lot of the poses but I did it. I think it was even more beneficial to my mind and spirit than to my body. My foot is still swollen and it hurts but the healing, for me anyway, starts from the inside out….

Day 189 of 365 Gray Beginnings

Gray beginnings, rain must be on the way today even though my old hippie ankle isn’t squeezing yet. Overcast days must be meant for coffee and art. I am most inspired by them I think. Funny, since I paint sunshines a lot. I bet the humidity in the air right now is like mist from…

Almost 200 days in now. How’s 2019 working out for you? I’m not gonna lie, it’s kicked my butt. But I’m not going to give in, give up or give over. Like my Nona said…”this too shall pass”. So, I’m gonna chill and wait for the storm to pass me by. I’ll play my music,…
