Breathing Together

Breathing together
of all things
I find myself
revelling in every drop
of anticipation
dripping wet in the ripe, rich fruit
of life
into the unexpected joy
of being alive.

This week is all work.. but it's a little bit about bliss. If you're lucky enough to love what you do, you're lucky enough.

Go In and In...

Go in and in.
Be the space
between two cells,
the vast, resounding
silence in which

spirit dwells.
Be sugar dissolving
on the tongue of life.
Dive in and in,
as deep as you can dive.
Be infinite, ecstatic truth.
Be love conceived and born in union.
Be exactly what you seek,
the Beloved, singing Yes,
tasting Yes, embracing Yes,
until there is only essence;
the All of Everything
expressing through you
as you. Go in and in
and turn away from
nothing that you find.

Introducing Lotus + Bliss

This new name and shop and re-branding of myself is part of my journey. I am working towards becoming a yoga teacher, and in the process, I am discovering so much about myself. 
I'm a yogi, a runner, an artist, a jeweler, a photographer. 
I like to describe myself as a visual poet, a space holder, and a moment collector. 
A light chaser, a soul seeker. 
I'm a reader, a tree hugger, and a vegan animal lover. 
And yes, I married a music man ♫

My re-branding is in progress! After agonizing for a couple weeks about the name, after miles and miles of lists and notes, it finally came to me as I found myself painting a lotus a few days ago. I don't know why I agonized for so long. It's really simple, and simple is good, and I am happy, and simple and happy = bliss.
