You will hear thunder and remember me, and think: she wanted storms... ~ Anna Akhmatova
This quote made me think of something I woke up and wrote the other day...
As I heard the wind rustling over the long grasses outside, I shivered further down beneath the covers. It was a cold and forward wind.There's a slow truth coming, I thought to myself, and it's not going to be an easy one.
I write fiction and poetry and am listening more and more to my creative voice, which I had silenced for years. Whatever becomes of it, I cannot know..but it feels good to let the steam out of the kettle.
As a yoga studio owner and a yoga instructor, I am always looking for that perfect song to send my clients home with after an awesome practice. But sometimes, after I put a song on, I will find myself thinking, is this really the perfect song? Is it too sad, too upbeat, too this, too that?
Obviously, it's very important to me (and if you're a yoga teacher too, I know you feel the same!) So, with this post, it is my goal to research and find my most perfect Savasana songs (on the planet).
I will add to this post as I find more songs that I feel to be absolutely perfect for delicious Savasana moments!

I did NOT want Donald Trump as my President. But, truth be told, I wasn't overly affectionate of Hillary. I would have gladly voted for another Republican if there was a good one. I'm not going to get into the various reasons why I didn't want Donald Trump as the person in charge of my country. The fact is, it is over and he is our President-elect.
We have the power in our daily lives to choose what matters to us. The country obviously chose Trump as a response to something deep that it felt was missing. I don't get that but the vote shows it to be true. I still have the power in my life to choose what is important to me, regardless of who the President is, and that is partly because I l…
Okay, I can't even with this new poet that I'm reading. Just sharing the first two things that I read that make me want to read everything he's written.
What if all we have ever wanted isn't hiding in some secret and faraway dream but inside of us now as we breathe one another and find home in the way our arms always seem to fit perfectly around the space between us?
What if we are the answer and love is the question? What if all this time it was us you were supposed to find? I am filled with wonderings questions and doubt but of one thing I am certain: it will always be you that gives flight to the butterflies inside me. calm to the sea I have become and hope to the darkness all around us. It is you and it has always been you you.
