Namaste

I bow to you.

I do…..all you creatives out there, doing your thing.  Making it happen.  The creative endeavor is a challenge and to make it one’s profession is such a beautiful soup of confusion, peace, excitement, torment, insecurity, pride, love, jealousy, hard work…..how many more adjective can I come up with?  I mean, the list goes on and on.  I think of us all, thriving and floundering, and how we can work together rather than against one another.  I feel like we are a team, like we all have a divine spark,  Should we choose to honor this spark in on another we could be unstoppable.

A force.

Art is important.  History has taught us this.

So are relationships and togetherness.  Community.

One heart.

Every time I attend a yoga class and especially when we all come together in one gorgeous Om, I feel that one beating heart between us.  Om, the whole universe coalesed into a single sound and representation of the union of mind, body, and spirit that is at the heart of yoga……no biggie.  Just, whatever, the whole universe there in our chests.  That, to me, is the magic of yoga.  I love getting my body stretchy and centered, I love getting strong and sweating, I love challenging myself in pose, but the reason I fell in love with yoga was because I felt that sense of oneness.  Like I belonged to a greater something, with all of you.  That we all can appreciate, support and see one another while shining our very brightest as individuals.  The gravity of this concept has quietly brought me to tears on my mat many times.  Over time I’ve learned to take this sensibility outside the yoga studio and into my life and damn it feels good.

Right.

So in honor of the great many things yoga has taught me and will continue to teach me I leave you with photos from a recent editorial for Cosmo Muse…..launching soon!  I love working with this team.  Hopefully we have more to create together in the future.

Ommmmmmmmmmmmm

Beach Dwellers

I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with my brother and sister in law and their adorable children (plus one on the way) at their beach cottage on the west coast.  I have always loved how they do this whole life thing and also love telling day in the life stories.  They were gracious enough to allow me into theirs for a spell……..sea breeze and sunshine, calm and chaos, parenting and coupling, style and authenticity, work (Dan is an attorney and Mia runs the show at home for now) and play….they balance it all so beautifully.
