Took a great hike on Saturday on the Black Forest Trail with Tim and Jackie. The weather could not have been better and the company more inspiring. Tim and Jackie are so fit and athletic and run on batteries, I swear. Jackie got up and ran 13 miles before we even started hiking, and we … Continue reading Getting “Schlitzered”
I feel sorry for Jared, my optometrist. I went in there this morning with a whole list of things I needed for my problematic eyes. It took me almost 20 minutes of complex narrative, complete with subordinate clauses and multiple parentheticals, to lay out all the potential options: continue with bifocal contacts or switch to … Continue reading Seeing much better now
Weird day to buy a Christmas tree, but that’s what we did. Weirdly warm. And sunny. What? I’m not complaining but, still. We go to a “cut your own” place with some of the nicest views around here. You stop at the owner’s house where today, nobody was home, but there was a note on … Continue reading Weird Tree Day

Today I went for my last picking of the season, as the farm will close for the season next weekend. Late berries are the sweetest, and I was born to pick. I love searching the bushes, … Continue reading A Berry Deep Meditation
I’m on vacation. Here’s what my vacation looked like this morning: Here’s what it looked like a few hours later: I’m on a crowded beach in Rehoboth, DE. It’s 100 degrees. It’s “Where’s Waldo?” out here. Family dysfunction is on full display It’s probably the last place you’d expect to find me (your yoga teacher) … Continue reading What’s a Vacation?
“The only constant is change.” That quote is from Heraclitus. True dat. I went to Kripalu to “fill my cup” after the “30 Days for $30 Yoga Challenge.” . I needed lots of sleep, good food (that I did not have to prepare), and lots of yoga (that I did not have to lead.) For … Continue reading There’s No Place Like Home
