Take some time to renew

Published on December 25, 2017

We are in that “mid-holiday” time: those days between Christmas and New Year’s. The excitement of Christmas is wearing away from our thoughts and we slowly move to replace it with reflections of the past year and anticipation for the New Year. The cold, sometimes overcast, infrequently wet weather brings a quietness that rivals the […]


Coming back to the Light

Published on December 22, 2017

When I saw this beautiful sconce on the wall in our Venice hotel, it immediately brought to mind the soft light at Year’s End: candles, tree lights. The beauty of the early winter brings to mind the past and the possibilities of the future. The ancients were grateful for the returning light which was their […]


Coming of the Winter Solstice

This quote from Albert Camus has spoken to me all my life. I first read it as a teen, having no idea what life had in store for me. Many times,particularly hard times, this quote would pop into my head, warming my heart and providing me comfort. This was probably one of my first self-care […]

Published on December 2, 2017

What has your year been like? Has it met your expectations? Was it all you hoped it would be? Let’s stop for a moment, during this season of “revving up”, to slow down and look at our year. Maybe you have to break the year down into blocks of time (some good, some challenging) in […]


Returning

Published on November 25, 2017

My backpack and my hat are symbols to me of my travels. Constantly with me, protecting me, helping me both items are both functional and symbolic. I look at my yoga practice in the same light. Functional as it helps to maintain balance, strength and breath. Symbolic, as the movements tell my mind to settle, […]

Arrivederci!

Published on September 16, 2017

We have been diligently studying Italian for four months now. My husband has made great progress, reaching 27% fluency (according to our language app Duolingo). I have only achieved 2%, but I think I have got the important words down. This is our last week together of yoga until after Thanksgiving. I am leaving you […]
