Getting Ready for the Big Race!

I just came back from a ten mile run this morning and am feeling pretty fatigued.  I decided to go without my trusty Garmin because it needed to be charged, and I needed to unwind from the technology.  As I pounded out the miles without it strapped to my wrist, I felt free to focus […]

Apologies Required

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.” ~Alexander Pope I take exception to his quote because I feel that it leaves much undone; like saying that 2=4. To be correct, the equation needs something additional, as does Mr. Pope’s quote.  To err is surely human and to forgive, divine, but we cannot seek forgiveness from […]

Yoga Time

Today marks the next to last weekend that I will spend at Spacious Heart Yoga in Goshen, Indiana, attending Anusara Immersion with Mimi Ray.  The trip has been awesome thus far.  We have spent many weekends together over the past year, and I am sad in some ways to see the end approach.  In other […]

Friday after the Move and Doubt Creeps In

  The ribbon was cut and the move has been made.  I am officially in my new location in Warsaw, Indiana.  I love it!  The space is light and airy; the traffic is steady and I am hopeful once again that my business will be a success. But doubts still plague my mind from time-to-time. […]
