Be kind

Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. -Henry James


Grounds for Sculpture

I went to the Grounds for Sculpture again yesterday. It was a dreary day, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, there was a gorgeous moodiness about the Grounds that enhanced the beauty greatly.

One Idea

“Take up one idea. Make that idea your life – think of it, dream of of, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.” – Swami Vivekananda

I have been having my mid-life crisis or something (hah!) and trying to plot some changes in my life, including my so-called career. This quote really strikes me as a terrific description of the mindset that I, or anyone, really needs before these changes can happen. Yet another interesting example of the ways yoga and “real life” connect. 🙂


My sister is a woman of many talents, including photography.  So, when I set up my new blog I felt that using one of her pictures in the header would be the perfect way to customize it.  And she graciously agreed. Thanks, sis! 🙂
