Week in Review

I’m sitting fireside after a day of retreat planning for Costa Rica and Tranquility Virtual while consciously engaged in packing procrastination. Although I have a huge suitcase stuffed with ephemera, stamps, paint, and tools for art journaling in the rainforest, it’s now time to tackle my tiny personal suitcase. Since that involves laundry, toiletries, and, the hardest decision of all, which books to bring, I’m writing instead!

This week offered doses of inspiration including Jasmin Singer’s book signing at Compassion Over Killing and vegan afternoon tea at the Willard talking nonprofits, animals, and life updates with a longtime girlfriend. There was strategic planning at all-day Director’s Retreat, at home with Tim, and over tea with the Dupont Studio Director. I enjoyed the opportunity to serve clients at The Women’s Center, co-teach a 5-hour Mindfulness Urban Retreat plus my weekly Mindfulness class, and collaborate with my local seamstress on TranquiliT’s spring designs. I also chatted with a local animal sanctuary director about hosting an event: animals, yoga, community. Ooh la la, details forthcoming.

A few additional sweet moments were sprinkled throughout such as wishing Pops a happy 73rd, soaking in the tub, savoring a cupcake, announcing my first Periscope broadcast, and preparing to host next week’s Art + Asana Retreat.

Look for images and inspiration from the rainforest next week. In the interim, wishing you a soulful and playful Valentine’s Day filled with your favorite things. x
