“If you had a few days to live who would you contact and why aren’t you doing that now?” Steven Levine. Wise words of wisdom to help guide us in living a purposeful and meaningful life. Appreciating the people in your life and letting them know you care about them. Being a positive influence in someone’s life, perhaps helping to lift someone’s spirit by a simple call, gift or visit.

This past week I lost my beautiful, soulful, strong and resilient Uncle Willie at the young age of 97 years. He died from Covid-19. He was an immigrant from Ireland who came over on a ship and settled in Maryland in the 1950s. He travelled with his wife and children to this country to have a better life and provide for his family. They missed Ireland terribly

As I write this, it is day 10 of 365. Somewhere around day three, I started bringing “make every day count” to my morning contemplations. Time seems to be flying and I felt a need to name things that I do rather than the days being blurry falling one into the next.

So many words come to my mind as I think of our past year and the upcoming 2021! Adaptability is at the top of my list. Being able to flow with the changes. Resilience, patience, compassion and love are significant words that have become our mantra.

Grateful is an emotion that overcomes me as I write my column. I am grateful for my family, friends and Ocean Bliss Yoga community. There has been a huge disconnect in human connection and I feel blessed that my business partner, Paulette, and I

Lately, inspirational thoughts do not flow so effortlessly for me. I find myself having to pause and slow down more frequently. I am retreating more within my home finding comfort inside. As I write this column, it is winter solstice. A very special one in the planetary world. Saturn and Jupiter will come within degrees of one another. It will never happen like this again in our lifetime. Energies of Jupiter and Saturn illustrate this dance of yin and yang. Jupiter is said to represent growth

It’s Saturday night in December and I am home preparing my class to teach on Sunday. For the past 11 years I have taught a Sunday yoga class and it has become a beloved class to teach.  To show up even when it’s cold and windy can be difficult but in the end, it makes my Sunday extra special.
