It’s as high as it’s gonna get today- 38 degrees Fahrenheit and low of 12 ❄️so I’ve got the fire started for @mshannonhernandez who is arriving this morning for our mutual mastermind 😘 where we take turns working through our business strategies and next steps. .
.
.
Over the years I’ve loved these kinds of DIY masterminds and still get together (albeit less frequently) w my biz bffs @kacypaide and @racheal.cook
.
.
.
It’s been amazing to be a part of one another’s lives during success and “failure” as cheerleaders, colleagues and friends (who feel like family). I️ have a little book on Amazon all about how to DIY your own mastermind. Check it out!

Just off the ice. I didn’t want to go bc I felt like I had too much to do (who doesn’t?) but I figured an hour of skating would brighten my day and I need to take my own medicine- that is to prioritize joy. I’ll let you know how the rest of the day shapes up... #yolo #bryantpark #wintervillage #doyourjoy #joymoneymatrix

Omg holiday product packaging from @davines!
Back in maybe 2006 I was in Italy for work and ran into all these hair stylists in Florence who were just hyped about a line of products called #davines.
Now remember this was back in the heyday of Aveda and they just raved and raved about this Italian brand with sweet packaging and eco formulas that work.
I used to buy my products on every trip abroad until they brought them stateside at more salons.
And look at these amazing little boxes full of goodies! #wantneedmusthave

This is what people do who work from home. Btw I AM wearing pants. No really I find singing helps me get into my body (a la meditation or exercise) and what's more it's really fun and helps me channel the zest of for example, Lady Gaga. #dirtyhairdocare it's wash day!

It's the first real autumn chilly morning! We may be running late and have unwashed hair and a messy house but the fire is roaring, I get to break out the sparkly Uggs and pomegranate seeds are on my oatmeal. #winning

More or less finished illustration for my new perfume elixir The Fall. .
.
The Fall is an ode to Paradise Lost (aka summer) whose juicy and uplifting citruses are grounded by smoky vetiver and cedar wood to create an earthy tonic that soothes during the blustery transitional season, autumn. .
.
I blend in small batches of organic oils with the addition of African turquoise to combat depression and boost immunity and intuition.

Knock knock!
.
.
Who's there? .
.
Thalia and Melpomene!
Sorry if you were expecting a yolk- how bout some history instead?
Thalia is the happy Greek drama mask and Melpomene the sad one. Circa 500-300 BC (the golden era of Ancient Greece- think marble statues and Aristotle and the Greek chorus) these masks were used in drama to portray the extremes of the human psyche. .
.
Thalia is the muse of comedy while Melpomene is the muse of tragedy.
.
.
.
I haven't said much about the Vegas shooting or the hurricanes or the wild fires or the freaking Harvey Weinstein case. That's a lot of heavy shit in just a few weeks' time no?
.
.
. And somehow I missed Mental Health awareness day- it was yesterday.
.
.
.
So I have a few things to say: 1. I hope that these awful tragedies bring about a collective dedication to cultivating empathy in ourselves and the next generations.
2. I hope that we do not become hard and turn inward to protect ourselves from the beauty of the paradox of this human journey.
3. I pray that we take individual responsibility for how we show up and give space for all the different permutations of that same authenticity and commitment in others.
4. Having mental health challenges really stinks. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones. It can feel so isolating and lonely to be in the mire of it especially without support.
5. Savor both the muses. It's a blessing and a gift to be here.

Been pondering of late the intersection of magic and miracles in our lives and what gives rise to those two experiences more often.
.
.
The more I dig into it the more I am seeing patterns of behavior and thought- prioritizing creativity, spending time mindfully and in contemplation/meditation, cultivating order in the chaos of everyday life. .
.
These are actually simple things to do but like most worthwhile efforts sometimes are difficult to sustain as inertia towards the fast paced, consumption vs creation, mindless routine, all can keep us going 1000 miles an hour in a direction we don't really want to go.
What do you think? Are you pointing where you want to go? Would you change your direction in any way?

Breathe in...and out- just like the waves.
After teaching yoga for around 8 years I stopped teaching in 2012 and practiced very little during and after pregnancy. .
.
This week in Paros with four very different and gifted teachers (and with Justin!) has been a delight- opening my body and my heart once more to the joy of yoga. .
.
My body really loves yoga. Sure I'm sore and feel strain when holding a pose that my body geometry finds challenging, but it's like my particular physiology was made for this. It's come back to me so rapidly I'm astonished it's been four years since I practiced regularly..
.
Aside from being able to do "yoga tricks" though, I'm much more interested in integrating my movements, building stability and flexibility and finding calm and ease during moments of challenge. What a gift to be here, on this earth, in this body.

Saw these two pretty ladies outside a trims shop in Athens. Think M and J trimmings but on steroids. These girls are made entirely from embellishments!
