Ollie, Ollie, Oxen Free

Come out, come out wherever you are! 

This includes me. I’ve been hiding under a rock and/or just plain gallivanting. The June pilgrimage came and went, as did July, and now I am year older. 

It’s all good. This summer is proving to be wondrous. 

I’ve been sailing, paddleboarding, hanging at farmer’s markets, and music festival-ing per usual. I have met so many incredible new people on our journeys, reconnected with my tribe and found a way to purge some riff-raff. 

 

This is a form of LovingKindness - finding ways to move forward with grace through interdependence. Interdependence walks hand in hand with independence. Did you know that? Begin today by cultivating a lovingkindness and friendliness toward oneself and others. We must support each other and this takes courage and whole lot of Self Love. The work begins within.

When in doubt I float, on the sea or in my asana mobile finding new places and meeting fabulous folks.

You are all here to actually teach me. When the student surpasses the teacher I have done my job. 

 

Ways to Self Love:

Garden. 

Meditate.  

Call a friend.

Hike.

Eat.

Music. 

Make Art. 

Practice Anything! Music, Yoga, Art - even clean your house calmly!

 

or, ya know, just float…. see what happens when you let go…
