My heart is as crushed as it is overjoyed today. As one friend mourns the tragic loss of his youngest son, another friend prepares to bring a new daughter into the world. I am at a loss for words, but there is a burning in my chest full of love for them both as each bravely embarks on the path that life has chosen for them. #vscocam

"So now you can let go my darling…Let go…Let go of this poor old body. You don’t need it anymore. Let it fall away from you. Leave it lying there like a pile of worn out clothes…Go on my darling, go on into the Light, into the peace, into the living peace of the Clear Light." #AldousHuxley 

Last week my sweet (great) Aunt Leora left this earth after an amazing 98 years. Our times together were too few and far between, but her kindness and engaging spirit always made each visit we did share special. When one reaches such an age, their life experience is so rich and vast. Aunt Leora’s memory was sharper than mine, and I’m so lucky to have heard just a fraction of her stories. We sure will miss her, but I feel a sense of calm thinking of her now, knowing that she lived such a full and brilliant existence full of love and life. #vscocam

Sure did miss seeing these two crazy kids when I woke up this morning. Here’s a shot of them from our intensive “How To Use Your New iPad” (aka “Creating Monsters”) class last week.

I used to proudly survive on fast food burgers, fries and chicken tenders. Over the past year I’ve made a conscious effort to learn more about where food comes from and how it affects my body, energy and spirit. I now crave things like this perfect #rawkalesalad and feel mentally and physically better than ever before. Pay attention to what you put into your body and how it makes you feel. It matters. #reformedjunkfoodqueen #youarewhatyoueat #eatlikeyougiveadamn #foodismymedicine
