A Country Morning with Mercury in Retrograde and Change In The Air

It’s one of those country mornings. A picturesque beautiful morning you would see in a movie set on the countryside in Italy or somewhere. It’s green and cool, the moaning dove is crying out, in the distance a dog is barking, birds are singing and all is well. The breeze isn’t stirring at all so the…

Just Another Day…

Just Another Day…and that’s a groovy thing

Ashtanga and…Art that means something, like Music does
