for an experience in my Next Generation Yoga TT that brought me deep empathy for the emotional and psychosocial needs of a very special being that I work with and love. I feel better equipped to support this beautiful soul if only in that I can now deeply relate to their inner struggle.
for warm tea on a cold rainy night in a cozy Encinitas, CA Coffee shop (E Street Cafe) and random hugs from former-strangers-become-instant-friends over a game of cards.
for understanding, soft, sensitive, deeply feeling women who strive to bring their inner joy to rest on the soft smiles of an engaged child’s face.
for a sweet conversation I shared with my Nona Mirella over the phone – I am so grateful for her support on my path – her help made this current Kids’ Yoga Teacher Training possible. I have no words to express how much her blessings mean to me.
for fresh, decadent salads pregnant with a rainbow of raw, flavor-bursting color, and topped with sunflower seeds, avocado, artichoke hearts and a generous portion of kalamata olives.
for people who live their convictions as if ethos + passion = oxygen. Thank you for keepin’ us all AWAKE!
for the containment of amorous energy and the patience and faith to hold my own hand until the day I embrace a palm that is firm, steady, kind, with just a streak of untamed nature coursing through the veins.
for cafés with dim lighting and capacious well worn couches.
for flip flops when it’s really cold and rainy out – that little bit of material between the wet concrete and my bare feet really warms my body up.
for social media – even though i never thought I would say this. FB can be a really cool tool.
