My Yoga Practice

I love going to yoga and am always so thankful after my practice.

My body needs to stretch and move and exercise and relax.

My mind needs the calmness and centeredness that yoga delivers.

I love my yoga teacher and seeing my friends in class, by my side.  I feel connected.

I love the feeling of completion and accomplishment at the end and I always look forward to going back again.

Yoga is my thing.  What is your thing?  What grounds you? What do you love to do?

If you were a tree, which one would you be?

Hanging in There


I love trees and I love being outside. Thanks to my sister Tricia for suggesting my blog topic for tonight. Do you know how hard it is to think of a new idea to write about every night? Thank you sister!

Life is good and busy.

How was your day?


My Playground





It was a beautiful day at Rancho San Antonio, hiking with Susanne and missing Michele. I automatically drive towards M’s house but she moved away, and I had to backtrack to the parking lot.

Rancho San Antonio is in the middle of Silicon Valley and provides a respite from the chaos and speed of life that is. It is my happy place, besides the beach. I was happy to see the water flowing in the creeks today.

This pig was lying in the sun just enjoying his day and he made me smile. Oh, to be so happy just being.

Later this afternoon, I took Charlie to a local park as we had an hour to fill while we waited for Juliana. We both felt out of place because he’s older now and so am I. We weren’t quite sure what to do with ourselves as there were lots of little ones running around. We had fun on the swings and climbing and hanging on the bars. Soon we saw friends we know and love and felt at home again.


Today was a fun and busy day yet there were moments of stillness and playfulness that made me happy.

How was your day? What made you smile?

I hope you feel fulfilled and content.



Juliana called me to come outside to see the sky this morning before she left for school. It was radiant!! My phone camera hardly captured the beauty of the moment.

Charlie had a football game this afternoon and again the sky caught my attention.

While I wait for Christian’s water polo match to begin, again I find myself looking up.


As you walk through your day, I hope you take a moment to look up and enjoy the stillness for a moment or two, especially before the holiday rush begins.
