happy summer everyone! we start it with a cool 69 just after a wonderful couple of inches of rain!
summer. the season to go out on a limb and try something new. go out and give ya fruit to the world.
eat some watermelon, summer squash and a pepper or two…lay off the winter potatos…
adventures galore, excitement, abounding energy for more and more amor…but take time to relax.
afternoon siestas in the heat of the day, dips in cold bodies of water, pleasant chats with friends,
rocking chairs and hammocks swaying to and fro in summertime breezes with a delicious drink in hand.
be greatful.though warmth and light brings heat and brightness stay cool calm and collected.
harness the seasonal energies to charge your life with excitement while taking the time to absorb it.
happy summer summer summer time!
wonderful talk on why we should smile more!
grounding yourself in the midst of turmoil is a useful art
doesn’t have to be full on drama
just a bit too much mental chatter
that can be our undoing
so do ya know what to do?
ground your forehead or the top of your head
which like a loose wire sending electric sparks
endangers all around to electrification!
this is a fancy grounding
feel free to be fancy
feel free to be free
if you don’t know
now you know
this is forro!

a video from a couple years back
was looking to teach whoopie goldberg yoga
simple but hope you like
the only instructional yoga video i’ve done
mystic of mytics
thank you for words of wisdom
messages of love and respect
recognition of inequities
for the brighter day
“give us the teachings of his majesty-we nuh want no devil philosophy”
seasonal yoga incorporates a practice that is ever-evolving and ever-referencing the seasonal shifts.
light, color, and air are major indicators for how we should be living and eating on a day to-day.
winter yoga asks us to grow our roots, be tranquil, rest, nurture, read, hibernate, work on the hearth-n-home.
now spring weather is on hand…and we get to play! get the sap going, joints moving, winter snow melting!
this little sequence is part of a ten year goal…of which i have not attained…yet continue to aim for…
cuz -”a goal is not always meant to be reached”- says bruce lee
get it up
while the getting is good
spring winds and sunny days
breathe inspiration into us
if we move out of the way
get up wake up get the day dawning
sleep in during the spring
your best bet to staying behind
rising and shining
with first light’s rays
brings in the irie vibrations!

time to take the leap
tadpole to frog
make the metamophisis
“the caterpillar can not comprehend the butterfly”
step into the void
drop the story
the new you is waiting
with the arrival of spring
we begin to see a bit more light
a bit more a heat
a bit more of quite a bit
we also hear the sounds of spring so clearly
birds calling and singing
bees wings buzzing
dancing in and out of spring blossom’s delight
but with us, it sounds a bit more
like the video above.
spring sound is screaming
for spring is connected to liver
liver connected to anger
anger to screaming
so be sure not to scream
to loud at yourself.
joyfully includes gardening
for those of us who like to get a little dirty
we can garden like a dork
we can garden with intention
this is a sequence
based on a comment in this morning’s class
meant to inspire a new way of weeding

for a bit of variety
this is a sunflower walkway
being uncovered with love
just east of the river
there lays hidden a hidden gem
an old old austin original kiln
built even before a foregone day.
the are of peace begins with you.
work on your self
and your appointed task in the art of peace.
everyone has a spirit
that can be refined,
a body that can be
trained in some manner,
a suitable path to follow.
you are here for no other purpose
than to realize your inner divinity
and manifest your inner enlightenment.
foster peace in your own life
and then apply the art
to all that you encounter.
founder of aikido
spring has sprung
and the time to clean
according to some
this is the time
to give away
1 out of 10
1 of 10 shirts.
1 of 10 pants.
1 of 10 pots & pans
1 of 10 knick-knacks
or 1 of 10 chachkies.
1 of 10 dramatic friends!
2 of 10
6 of 10
would be better
1 of 10 will do.
time to open up the windows
let the spring air in.
let the sun shine in
on the dark crevices
of our heart.
burn a little sweetgrass
sweep up the floors
remove the cobwebs
gathered over doors
melt the winter snow
let the mojo rise
let the inspiration
projects, friends, life adventures
lemon water and bitter greens.
neti pot and coco-oilation.
liver cleansing and gallbladder flushing
all a part of our springtime duties.
open up the windows to your heart
open to the inner light within
to be healthy once again
and lets light the world together
in which we are living in!
