MOTHER

I am appalled and terrified at the rate at which we are hurtling towards the demise of our planet. And I am truly shocked and confused at how everyone is not 100 percent plugged into it. Are there really such things as Climate Deniers? Well STOP IT!! Just stop. We should all be working together […]

A Mother’s Day Card to All of Us

In the incredibly challenging time of the unveiling of the gremlins and the goo in the dark corners and the pillaging and plundering of the fat piggy boys in this country, we need to make sure we keep Truth shiny and powerful and all important. The safety and sanctity of our bodies belongs to us. […]

The Truth of Me.

Many years ago I was running on a treadmill in a gym in Los Angeles. Suddenly the noise of the gym was silenced and I was hovering over the machine, watching myself run. I floated towards the ceiling and as I got more air I heard an overwhelming cacophony of voices and languages, yelling, talking, […]

HOME SWEET HOMEY HOME HOME

Good morning. I’m in the midst of a heady time because I’m taking a gamble. I bought a cute little condo for my kids and I. It’s a gamble because of my health issues, which are at least as serious as a heart attack. I was reluctant at first, worried that my health might fail […]

MANNERS MATTER

Good Morning. I’ve shied away from my blog for the last few months. I don’t know why, I just felt as if I had nothing much to say. Although if you ask my friends and co-workers, it’s actually hard to shut me up. Recently a friend and fellow yoga teacher pointed out that I hadn’t […]

Bob Dylan, The Monkees, and The Beatles; A Love Story

I grew up in Woodstock in the 60’s and 70’s. In grade school, I broke my leg in a skiing accident. Because I had a tendency to go flying down the halls on my crutches at ungodly speeds, I was assigned a caretaker. She and I became fast friends. She was adorable, cute as a […]

SNAKE!

  This is a quick little retelling of a blog from some years ago that you might enjoy with your morning coffee. I was married, my kids were little. We lived in a big fancy  house on the edge of the Santa Monica Conservancy.  It wasn’t unusual to see bobcats, many coyote, an occasional lion, […]

BURNING AWAY THE CHAFE

I live and work in the Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks; two adjoining communities in Southern California. We’ve had a week from hell. A mass shooting in our small community in a bar we’ve all patronized – Borderline. The shooter mowed down 12 people, mostly 20 something year old young adults. A co-worker of mine who […]

THE WORD – BE HERE NOW, BABY

How do can we possible manage everything that is happening now? Our best possible coping mechanism we can give ourselves is to live right in this itty bitty and fleeting moment. The present moment will always be with you. Your present. In this moment, those of us who are sick are alive. Those of us […]

ONCE UPON A TIME NEEDS TO HAPPEN NOW

“What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.” – From Cool Hand Luke  I may be naïve. I may be missing something. But here’s my issue. Human beings have always relied on stories to explain the mysteries of the world. Myth taught us what it meant to be a bad guy, and what it took […]
