Woke up to a power outage this morning. No lights, no heat, but fortunately we have a gas stove and had the means to cook, and we had water. Cobbled together some oatmeal in the dark, but didn’t risk taking showers. G walked the dog and went to the office where there was power. I … Continue reading This Analog Life
I feel so much better after talking to Jennifer this afternoon! My eye is no better, and maybe it’s even a little worse, but now I have someone helping me get to the bottom of this, and that is a big relief. She said I need more fire. She told me to indulge in fats, … Continue reading I Need More Fire
1. Today it was sunny and in the 40s (omg, my face didn't hurt when I walked outside!) 2. And G's wheatgrass is up! 3. I did a private Beginner Yoga lesson today with a delightful woman who came in with a new mat (the absolutely worst mat she could have gotten, but oh well, … Continue reading A Few Things That Made Me Happy This Week

The interviewer asked him what he says to people who tell him that they don’t know what they want to be when they grow up.

Last night I got this text from my friend Jennifer Ness Schmid: “Hi, You should not have … Continue reading Help is on the way
I am sitting here on the couch with the headphones on because the basketball game is on and I can’t really write with that blithering in my head. I am in my 2nd day of no coffee and I think my eyes are getting worse, not better. I know 2 days isn’t much, but I … Continue reading Winter, enough.
I love coffee so much. I have an Verismo espresso machine, a milk frother to make lattes, , a pour-over thing if I want a one cup of perfectly brewed coffee, and a hot water kettle with a goose-neck spout for directing the hot water precisely over the grounds. I also have a french press … Continue reading No Coffee, No Prana
I have no idea what to write tonight. This is my 34th post in a row. I started out on February 18th, Ash Wednesday, with the goal to post every day until Easter, which I believe is April 5th. But tonight I am hitting the wall, I am scrounging for content. But I will not … Continue reading Elimination Diet Begins Tomorrow
I teach yoga because I can. By this I mean I think that I am able to utilize my gifts of words, and my highly developed people reading and sensitivity skills in this way. I teach yoga because it marries my introverted nature and my extroverted nature. The practice itself is introverted but the delivery … Continue reading Why I Teach Yoga
Every April I do a 30 Yoga Challenge at my studio. I incentivize my students by offering them a month of yoga for $30. But I really don’t think it’s the reduced price that gets them. I think it’s more their own curiosity about whether they can actually DO it. Do they have the stamina … Continue reading 15 Reasons To Do A 30 Day Yoga Challenge
