Autumn Fugitive

October 16, 2012


tl;dr – I like to run until I puke and salamanders are fucking awesome. Letting the fugitive rest. Fall. Sometimes it makes me go fallow. By sometimes I mean that I have no memory of it being any other way. From my first memory to this moment, fall has been my season of bedding down […]

tl;dr – There is a lot of goddamned deep here. Fair Warning. Ariadne [ˌærɪˈædnɪ] (Myth & Legend / Classical Myth & Legend) Greek myth daughter of Minos and Pasiphaë: she gave Theseus the thread with which he found his way out of the Minotaur’s labyrinth Roots. I am close to my family, I am the […]

My guts are dreams.

July 5, 2012


I am A Dork. I dunno if you can tell but I was HEAVILY influenced by fiction/fantasy novels like the English Patient or The Dragon Lance Chronicles or Beach Music or A Boy’s Life or 1984 or The Wheel of Time series when I was a kid. I was enraptured with movies like The Princess Bride, Willow […]

Scars and Ink

June 18, 2012


There are really only two instances that make me think about being a cutter when I was young: When I get a new tattoo. When I begin a new relationship. Not that it doesn’t come up every once in a while whilst digging around in my soul garden…it’s just that these two things make me sit and […]

Grief sauce and the Deep.

May 15, 2012


Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in. ~Leonard Cohen There are two places in life that I wager we all have visited once or twice. The first I shall call the grief wave and the other the deep. They juxtapose and […]

Think and Thrive or maybe just watch some zombie movies…

April 6, 2012


So. I watched this movie the other month with a few of my yogi friends called Thrive. It was an awesome evening filled with great food, wine and a bunch of us tucked in on yoga mats, blankets and bolsters on the floor. It is what I call a thinking movie. You don’t sit down and […]

Boobs. All Kinds.

April 3, 2012


So. I found a lump the other night in my left breast. My tiny perky lil’ left breast. Before anyone freaks out – it’s benign tissue so I’m not “going to die out of cancer” – besides I did enough freaking out for all of us. Did you know that the internet is a den […]

Normalizing Thought and The Vernal Equinox (This is totally going to be my rap battle name)

March 20, 2012


Spring is here. In Colorado it means that there is a 75% chance for another brutal snow storm and a 100 % chance that rains and tearing winds will shake the sky open. I love the absurdity of it all. I love the change in the earth as it moves to its being-ness. I love […]

Asana and Teachable Moments

March 10, 2012


So I have this guilt complex about being a yoga teacher and also being a medicated manic depressive. Asana is a practice steeped in energy – you don’t have to be a gypsy yogi like myself to experience the way a room moves based on the ebb and flow of the practitioners emotional content and […]

Mind Body Battle Dome and the Bits Left Over.

March 6, 2012


I have this love affair with E.O. Wilson and Carl Sagan, Joseph Campbell, Rick Straussman and Neil deGrasse; people who live authentically and engage I a world larger than the ego self in a way that my brain has never been able to comprehend. When letters and numbers mix together I go full retard. These men […]
