took a little break from technology as I wanted to understand better my relationship to social media use. This came about through meditation, surely. It was a necessary break from constantly having the urge to create and share.

She had a heavy bag, which seemed to be most of her possessions she had taken for the day. I asked her if I can carry that for her as she slowly, limped and excited my car. She turned around and told me “now don’t drive away with that!”
This morning I woke up inspired by some travel photos of yogis out there in the world. As I caught myself going through the FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) abyss, I stopped myself immediately. On Fridays I like to feature others who practice yoga on my Instagram page and I stumbled across Adam Husler’s (@adhusyoga)… Continue reading Walk The Road Less Travelled
This morning I parked next to a security guard at the site I am working at this week. He stepped out of his car in his uniform and asked me whether I am a law enforcement agent or an educator? I assured him that I am an educator. He felt that he didn’t want me… Continue reading Climb In His Skin and Walk Around In It
