Attended a refresher course at One Taste LA today about the practice of orgasmic meditation.
.
During class, Eli, one of the facilitators, presented the notion that when we make choices that come from desire, a simple YES isn't always available. Often, there can be tension around reaching for a desire-driven choice, since it's the desires we long for most that require us to stretch the most.
.
When Eli said this, it was like a gong was struck in my belly, sending whooshing waves of resonance throughout my body.
.
What would it take for you to make the kinds of choices that require you to play in life even bigger?
.
Here's to all the decisions made with a "Yes! ... f@*k..." and to finding more ways to get filled up by the things that light you up. #desire

#tbT (hey! it's Tuesday!)

End of June, 2017.

The bi-annual Round Table Companies Gestalt staff retreat.
.
It's been a rough year, and Aleks, my writing partner, reminded me of who I am... and about how magical AF I can be when I'm in flow.
.
Dear Universe, thank you for bringing me such profound clarity, expansive desire to keep being even better and reaching for more of life, and for a whole lot of freaking grace. I am so grateful. Thank you thank you thank you.🦄

Curiosity can't actually kill you.

Not directly, at least. #psa

Walking Pippa the other evening, I looked up and my breath caught in my throat.
.
I call this piece, "Not half bad for the Valley."
.
The glass is half-full, even if there is no spoon. #optimism #thematrix

Like my good friend Nacho Libre once said: "Ay! Taketeeeeesy"
.
But seriously: struggling to get upstream is only good for salmon. And maybe Bear Grylls.
.
Pick up your feet, go with the flow, and be easy about it. It's a lot more fun that way. #nacholibre

Just above Santa Barbara's Butterfly Beach. Went for a walk with #pippathepooch and @cammie.j.k, in near-perfect 70° weather, and was the grateful recipient, once again, of the gift and magic of sisterhood.

It's all an adventure.
.
Stay open... that means in life, relationships, and writing or making art.
.
It'd be a shame if you didn't discover something awesome about yourself because you told yourself you 'already knew' how it would go down. What if there was another way?
.
What if you remained open to the possibilities?

Late post!

I snapped this in the air after leaving Iceland as we flew over Narsaq (?), which looks an awful lot like the North Pole to me. Pretty neat, huh?
.
Today, I am grateful for a lifestyle that lets me go to the North Pole (well, over Greenland, but it was pretty damn close), to doctor appointments with loved ones who need support, and to fall deeper in love with what is, a little more each day.

Unsatisfied creative energy can convert into subtle (and not-so-subtle) self-destructive tendencies.
.
You owe it to yourself to satisfy your creative impulses.

As it is with everything, and most people too, you get out what you put in.

You know it... your imagination is sacred.
.
How could it possibly be anything else?

I think we reached "squad goals" with this one. The tricentennial Fete Gallant at the Palace of Versailles.
.
I loved every minute of my time in Paris, especially getting dressed up in costume and wandering around the palace taking selfies. I know what you're thinking: a selfie a day keeps the eighteenth century at bay.
.
Also, these dresses were so heavy! Wearing it was like... wearing a very heavy dress. #selfiegameonpoint
