Happy Friday. Can it really be September already?? That means the holidays are around the corner. Say it isn’t so. I will not be traveling to CA . this year to see my family and friends that live there. Too many travelers, and too much stress for me. I have decided that this will be the start of having a relaxed holiday season. Fewer gifts to buy, few decorations, fewer commitments, and less stress. I will live more in the moment with what is going on. I find that thinking of all that needs to be done or all the activities I want to attend seems to cause tension. There will be no “shoulds.” No more of “I should be doing this or that.” I am much happier and have more energy when I remember that, and I bet most everyone else is too.
Everyone can always use a bit more love in their life, so I just started teaching Loving Yourself Yoga classes here in Nashville which will incorporate healing modalities in addition with the asanas (postures) so as to experience higher frequencies of love, harmony, peace and joy. I love teaching compassion, empathy, empowerment, and self-love using Yoga as the vehicle. The best part is the loving energy I receive from my students. It is a win, win for everyone. For those of you who have been my students in various cities in CA. and in St. Petersburg, Florida, I miss you very much, and wish there was a magic carpet or a form of high technology that could transport you all to my classes. Just know there is a special place in my heart for all of you. Now, on to building a student and client base here.
I wish I could visit my far away family and friends whenever the desire arises. Calling, texting, emailing, and skyping isn’t as wonderful as being there in person with you, but I am so very grateful and joyful when I get to visit with any of you that way. So, bring it on. I love hearing from you. I also want to give a "shout out" (funny expression) to my new budding and blooming friendships here in TN. I am happy you are in my life.
I have gotten involved with Transition Nashville which is a group involved with sustainable living involving our community. There are meetings and workshops to help locals acquire knowledge of how to grow our own food, install solar panels, get information about aquaponics, permaculture, edible forest gardens, greenhouses, time banks, etc. It is about working at the community level to build resilience in an effort to lead toward the big changes we need both nationally and internationally. One of the books we are using as we work together is “The Transition Companion” by Rob Hopkins. I know there are Transition movements in cities all over the U.S. and abroad. If you are interested, I suggest that you Google or log on to a MeetUp and search for Transition groups in your area. I encourage you to look into this as we don't know what is going to happen (perhaps even in the near future.) It is better to be prepared, and if all does go well, we will have nice gardens, learn how to live in a sustainable way and become friends with our neighbors. If things go as some economists and scientists predict, it will feel more comforting that we are more equipped to handle what may come our way.
I think most agree that awareness of the truth is so important now more than ever when the airwaves are filled with lies and distortion of the truth. So, I would like to use this opportunity to spread the word to those that don’t know or listen to Progressive Radio Talk shows that we can now listen to whenever convenient for us. There are many, and I want to highlight just two for now. www.democracynow.org and The Mike Malloy show. www.mikemalloy.com Mike really tells it like it is with no holds barred in an entertaining way. He makes me laugh out loud! Of course, sometimes you feel your blood boil when you learn what's going on. Just can't stick our heads in the sand though. Sure wish we could! If you scroll down on his home page to “Attention Truth Seekers!” You will see what is happening in order for us to have a 21stProgressive Media Universe.
On the home front, my big news is that after one year of working for a company my husband loves in a city that is approximately a 4 hour drive from our home, he is now going to be working from his Nashville office. It goes without saying how happy we are about that. We plan on going back to having home parties where Jim and other musicians and their family and friends enjoy each other’s company.
In addition to that, we are going to have movie night and show different documentaries regarding environment, politics, sustainable living, health, etc. As I have learned from participating in the Transition groups, we need to build communities. We will be inviting people in our neighborhood in an effort for us all to get to know each other. This is a growing movement throughout the U.S. and abroad.
So, this is it for now. I hope you enjoyed my ramblings.
