On the Subject of Transformation


"Learning to pause is the first step toward transformation and healing. 
We pause by stopping what we're doing—
we stop blaming, withdrawing, 
obsessing, distracting ourselves. 
In the space a pause creates, 
our natural awareness arises, 
allowing us to be mindful, 
to recognize what is 
happening inside us without judgment. 
By pausing, we begin to dismantle lifelong patterns of avoiding or distancing."

- Yoga Journal

One Love. One Peace. Always and all ways.

Nana ... I keep you in my thoughts. I do so often. And when I do it's with strength and comfort and it's like the best cup of hot chocolate you've ever had. It's the kind that makes everything better.

Mike ... you ought to see the smile on my face ... not too big. Not too small.

You might even notice me tearing up just a little bit ... because I do that when someone says something that sincere. I guess I tear up a lot. Mostly over good things.

nodding to you and your words today ... I'm going to say Thank you ... Thank you Mike. I like this one too. I like it a lot.
