Yoga EVERY Damn Day

Sometimes, we are blessed with people who not only love and support us, they also challenge us and push us to work harder for our dreams. I got lucky; I have one of those people. I now have a huge reward, and an equally proportioned challenge: in exchange for 365 days of consecutive yoga practice,... Continue Reading →

Starting Small

So it's been ages. Maybe two or three. But here I am, thinking about my blog again. Wondering why I never do seem to be able to keep up with it. So instead of just contemplating, I am doing. (for once) Lots of people I know are taking the time for November to post on... Continue Reading →

Welcome Back!

Hi all. I was a tad bored this morning, so I started playing around with my blog. New theme and colors, which I mostly like. Some feedback would be great, though. Any thoughts? For example, I'm not loving that apparently you have to hover over the title area in order to clearly see it and... Continue Reading →

New Year, Not So New You

Ah, New Year's Day. The day when we all get to be shiny and new. Yesterday we promised that next year, we would be better: healthier, happier, kinder, more forgiving, more generous, more thoughtful, more organized. Today is the day most of us try our best to fulfill that promise. Tomorrow is the day most... Continue Reading →

Work in Progress

So I didn't write a post yesterday. Total fail, right? Wrong. I'm not perfect, and I don't want to be. Sure, now I can't say I posted every day in November. So what? Today makes three out of four, and that's pretty damn good, all things considered. And I'm starting over. In more ways than... Continue Reading →

So what’s for dinner?

Ever have one of those days when you just couldn't care less what the food is, so long as you get to eat? I have them all the time. Really, all the time. And for me, not only do I not care what I eat, this not caring makes it so hard to decide what... Continue Reading →

Here we go again…

Well, here we are. November 1. I've been thinking lately that I have really neglected this blog. Looking back, that's quite an understatement. It's been months since I've posted. But, sometimes you have to rebuild a habit before it can be part of your life. And since I've been thinking about it, I've realized that... Continue Reading →

Void

Because it is a thought much in line with my own, and worth sharing.

Random and Written

The mind is void.
It becomes all things but does not
become them.
It conceives of all movement and substance
but remains as it is.
This is void.
Unknowable. Invisible. Untouchable.
It is and it is not.

The air is void.
It is and it is not.
In any empty space, anything can occur.
The space may fill with fire,
like a mind with a thought,
but when the fire fades
the space will remain.
This is void.
Unending. Unchanging.

All things are impermanent,
but the space in which they happen remains.
The ewer can be refilled when the water has gone.
The bowl will eventually return to emptiness,
no matter how often it is filled.
This is void.
Refilling, rejuvenating, present even where it is not.
Empty, Eternal, Energizing.

Catnip

Cats love catnip. It's a well established fact. I was watching my cats roll around in theirs today, and I realized something. We all have our own personal catnip. Something that we thoroughly enjoy, that gives us the heady, free feeling of a high. For some, it might actually be a drug that does that.... Continue Reading →
