For Lauren, My Sunshine

"Waiting for the sunshine:)" - by N-A-N-A on

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. ~ Nelson Mandela (1994 Inaugural Speech)

Brave Heroes of the World

"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them." Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." Peter replied, "We have left everything to follow you!" "I tell you the truth," Jesus, "no-one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age and in the age to come, eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first." Mark 10:27-31

Stop Drop and Roll

"The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant party, but they say nothing, and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

To be great, we must first, and always, be grateful

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136.1 Another incredible Thanksgiving in Rocksprings this year. As always, the week in paradise was filled with love, running, nature, rest, and time so blessed. I'm still soaking in the hours we got to spend together... more and more special every time. To top it all off, Tommy and Kelley will be married this May. Oh what fun! We're all so excited for those two - gorgeous in every way!

Paradise Found

The strength and beauty of femininity glows in Maya Fiennes and Katy Appleton. I would be so thrilled to join their escape from the world again in the future.

Bollywood Baby!

Just wanted to quickly share a few sweet words from a few joy-filled instructors I was pleasured to meet and practice with last weekend. The first, Hemalayaa.... such a radiant soul!"May love lead you to the joyous dance of life"
"A healthy mind, a healthy body, a joyous life, flow from an open heart."
