Yoga: Connectedness and Compassion

    0
Today was a powerful day. Our morning yoga session left me in tears and amazement. Tarina, our Aussie yoga instructor, was an intuitive, bright light and guided us through a physically and emotionally transformative session.  At the end of the session, Tarina drew 2 cards to guide us in our intention as we moved forward into our day. The first of those cards was Say...

One Year Later: Reflections on A Life

    0
It’s been an emotional morning.  It’s the 1-year anniversary of my fathers death.  There have been several visits home and a great deal of processing, some of which hasn’t ended and some of which I don’t believe ever does.  My fathers death is less of a mystery to me than his life. Sorting through paperwork and memorabilia and pictures, I am struck with the person...

Live a Lot

Slow down. Everyday will not be the same, no matter how strict we are with our routines. That’s the beauty in life, the unexpected. The sharp turns, and whether or not we are prepared to make them, even when we’re used to going straight. We’re supposed to be living flexible lives, taking the good with the bad. I’m no robot, so forgive me if I’m...

Decoded.

Amarachi Lounge, Brooklyn, NY. 2017 The other night, I went to visit the Whitney Museum in Manhattan, and I had a personal tour guide explain a few pieces that were on display. I was impressed and amazed by the obvious creativity, but even more so by the deeper and layered significance the artist wanted to convey. Sometimes I forget how pre-meditated artists can be, because...

Forever Young

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. 2017 I watched the movie Collateral Beauty on the plane as I traveled to Costa Rica, and it touched me. It brought to surface, things I think about often – yet in a more abstract light: Love, time, and death. We all want love. We all need more time. We all fear, yet will experience death. In the movie, some characters became...

In Front Of Me All Along

I grew up in an overweight family. My father, when he passed away last year at the age of 69, weighed over 400 lbs. With his back injuries and the beating his joints took from years of obesity, walking became a near impossibility and a daily struggle.  My father grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. Heavy with fats and lard, food wasn’t about health; it was...

My First Drone Movie

    0
I have been waiting quite some time for drones to be more safe and portable. The DJI Mavic Pro is the first drone that anybody can get but that is also good enough to create amazing professional-looking footage if you put your heart at it. This is not what I did for this first time. I was just excited to fly and try to put...

A Thousand Cuts

My friend John is a passionate archeologist and musician that I met in Colorado in 2008 when I was hitchhiking USA in the Magic Bus. John contacted me years after about this idea he had to go see the site of the first Spanish catholic church build in Mexico in the early 1600s. He hoped to find the ruins of a mayan pyramid that is...

Soft Pink Sand

Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda. 2017 This is the way I choose to live my life, as a wanderer. To wander, is to explore. “I  have places to go, people to see, and things to do.” I remember my mom always saying that, and it still sticks with me. I’ve got things to do! Bermuda was next up, and just a direct flight from NYC. I...

Abstract Nature Girl.

    Vinales, Cuba. 2017 Far beyond anything we can see with our eyes. Until infinity, as long as we believe. Take care of our minds, and our hearts, and exist forever. Keep a healthy self. Keep light. Keep love. Be light. Be love. Declutter and detach. Flow freely; be whimsical. Have a clear understanding on how to embrace and release all that comes and goes. Be still....
