One Breakfast at a Time

One Breakfast at a Time

I’ve been teaching and doing yoga for a long time, rambling on endlessly about how essential it is to be in the present momentwhile practicing. One breath at a time, move out of the busy mind and into the body, feel the muscles lengthen and the tissues hydrating and think of nothing else while you relish the present moment. . . Blah, blah, blah.

But truth be told, never, ever have I actually understood the value of those words and the power of the present moment.

Who’s Better Than You?

Who’s Better Than You?

Many years ago, my sister had a date with an interesting character. He was a nice enough guy, “very Jersey-Guido” with gold chains and a big-toothed smile. As Janice told him about her cool and interesting life as an entrepreneurial graphic designer living in Boulder, etc., Guido Guy blurted out, “Who’s better than you?” with his New Jersey, Italian twang. 

Be Bold. Yes You Can.

Many of you know that in August my only son went off to college. Ralph and I took the opportunity to spread our own wings and ventured off to Greece. Our only real plan was a week long sailing trip around the magical Greek islands. Besides that, we didn't have a clue where our adventure would lead, nor did we have plane tickets home.

The most interesting conversations often take place moments before a yoga class starts. Everyone is hanging out, enjoying lying over a bolster, tossing their legs up a wall, looping their feet in a strap - and they're so very happy they were able to duck out of their day long enough to get to yoga.

If you don't do yoga, that whole description may sound weird, but read on - this applies to you too.

Sometimes when it’s still snowing in May, or I have to drive 5 hours to get to a major airport, or there are so many tourists I can’t get close to a restaurant, I complain, silently or aloud, about living in this small mountain town called Crested Butte.

Then there are the days when small town living lifts my spirits in a big way. Today was one of those days.
