Off to Tokyo, Japan.
Be back soon with updates about my travels.

Here a few pictures from my last visit.

Up at 4am studying...
Suddenly startled by the ground shaking beneath me.
Poor Teddi sat motionless with the most terrified look on her face.
4.4 earthquake in Los Angeles.

oh, procrastination.

It's finals week and all I want to do is browse beautiful blogs instead of studying.

*This is Teddi my sweet pomeranian.

Today, while talking to my beautiful friend Elysabeth, I reopened a part in A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and read aloud a page that I had previously marked. And it was exactly what I needed to hear at that exact moment.

Thank you, synchronicity.

"Being at peace and being who you are, that is, being yourself, are one. The ego says: Maybe at some point in the future, I can be at peace -- if this, that, or the other happens, or I obtain this or become that. Or it says: I can never be at peace because of something that happened in the past . . . The ego doesn't know that your only opportunity for being at peace is now. Or maybe it does know, and it is afraid that you may find this out. Peace, after all, is the end of the ego.

How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present moment is the field on which the game of life happens. It cannot happen anywhere else. Once you have made peace with the present moment, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather what life does through you. There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life. Being one with life is being one with Now. You then realize that you don't live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance."



Today I feel like this.
but, I'll only allow myself to feel this way for a short while.

My two year old nephew, Kingston, was a grumpy little guy this past Sunday at brunch. It turns out he was simply tired and just wanted to be held by 'auntie'. I can't get enough of this boy. His sweet face, and small raspy voice just make me melt.

My family: Me, Mama, Jesse, Kingston & Lisa.

Most is a beautiful and powerful short Czech film by Bobby Garabedian. The film draws a definite parallel to Christianity. I cannot sum into words the way this film impacted me the first time I watched it. It is simply moving. If you have a free half an hour please watch this film. Simply, click the link above.

send positivity.

Om Lokah Samastah Sukino Bhavantu.
May all beings everywhere be happy.

We should all try our best to send out our most positive energy into the universe. After all we are all one, there is no separation, no I or you. We are all an extension of each other and everything. We must not forget that.
So today, I ask that you send out all the love and happiness you can.

*This is the chant that my past yoga instructor (from the yoga center in Redondo Beach that sadly closed down) would beautifully sing/chant in sanskirt.

Thank you.
