060912. Solstice is a big deal in the yoga community. It represents a shift in the Universal Consiousness.

031912. Maybe because it's Monday? Or perhaps because tomorrow is the first day of Spring? Maybe we were just too excited these past few days celebrating the new compost bin... (which was built by the LO and The Cowboy ... who I am very happy to have home for a... Continue reading

031512. Have I mentioned that the Cottage used to be a vacation rental? Before the LO and I invaded his space in Montana, the Cowboy would go off to work out of town and rent out the Cottage to visiting professors, directors for the local opera, ski-bunnies and boys …... Continue reading

Shakshuka over homemade polenta. Sourdough pizza with 5-minute cherry tomato sauce. All from scratch. All from our kitchen. All in the last eight weeks. And that’s only... Continue reading

031212. Many of you know … in my past life (22 months ago) I was a movie producer living in Los Angeles. I was an executive producer for a “director of note.” Spent my days meeting writers and directors, agents, actors, studio execs and managers. Living from project to project.... Continue reading

031112. The Cowboy asked me early this weekend, “Why aren’t you writing?” And I didn’t have an answer for him. But it bugged me. And then a few hours later he asked, “Is it because you’re struggling with this new point of view?” And that threw me for a loop.... Continue reading

022912. I don’t pine for a lot of the life I lived in Los Angeles. I don’t miss all the meetings. I don’t miss reading all those scripts. I don’t even miss the movie premieres or the parties. I do miss my friends. And sometimes I miss the weather. And... Continue reading

022812. It's been six months since my last class. I mean, I'm not making excuses, but I did have a baby. And as much as I appreciate and enjoy my own practice. I've really missed teaching. So to say I'm excited about this upcoming series of workshops is kind of... Continue reading

011112. In case you were wondering, the "magic word" is no longer "please." Or "thank you," "excuse me" or any other nicety that comes to mind. We were informed yesterday, by a precocious and chatty 2 1/2 year old that the magic word is ... Are you ready for this?... Continue reading

010712. I don’t know about you, but I depend on miracles. I believe in them. I pray for them. I rely on them. Daily. Little miracles. Like when the Little One decides without prompting to try the white bean and kale soup I made for dinner and she like it.... Continue reading

010512. Remember how I said I was ready for whatever 2012 had to offer? And I sounded enthusiastic about it? Well. I’m still enthusiastic. But I might not be ready. Last night we found out the Cowboy’s new job (in New Mexico) starts Monday. As in … Friday … Saturday... Continue reading

010212. Day 2 of the new year and so far, I've made and kept up all the usual resolutions: No more holiday baked goods and candies (except for maybe one more piece of the coconut chocolate confections homemade by the Cowboy's dearest friend SB ... but I denied it on... Continue reading

082211. I thought about not blogging today. I thought about just unplugging and unhooking and un-communicating. I even thought about un-meditating today. And then I thought I might come undone. Which wouldn’t do anyone any good. Not me. Not the LO or the OLO. Not the superMom or the Gram.... Continue reading

082011b. ... I did make those Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes. It was Monday. My superMom had just left for New Jersey. And the LO and I needed a pick-me-up because at least one of us was sad. But instead of strawberries (which, unless they are organic, are one of the most... Continue reading

082011. The visit from my superParents was interrupted last week when my grandmother (who happens to be 91 and 1/2 years old) had a heart attack on Sunday and the superMom had to rush home to New Jersey to be with her. And Gram … the original superDuperMom … is... Continue reading

080811. It’s Monday. By coincidence, I had another doctor appointment this morning (not unlike my last three appointments). Once again, I was scheduled for a test (this time a glucose tolerance blood test to see if I'm developing gestational diabetes) … And once again … The technician who was supposed... Continue reading

080611. First off, let me say, two Saturdays ago I said I was going to start limiting my tech time. Yeah. And then I downloaded the twitter app to my iPhone. So. Um. Yeah. That went well. On the upside, I did leave my phone in the car when I... Continue reading
