I HOPE THIS MESSAGE FINDS YOU AND YOURS
SAFE AND WELL
Thank you for following this Blog for the past year, it has been an exciting journey for me and from what I've heard it has been for you as well.
Covid-19 shook up the World no one is without a story. It is sad that so many lives had to end from this disease.
During my quarantine I began writing a book that will be launched later this summer.
SO STAY TUNED

At this point in time in this Covid-19 situation, I think we can all use a pause. Unfortunately an external manifestation of that is not in sight. Therefore it is my opinion that an internal pause is necessary.
Millions globally have had to take pause. Gosh up until 2 or so months ago I was adamantly recommending that we take at least a weekly pause. This I've lovingly coined as Nada Day and Monday used to be the day for me to relish doing Nada all day. It was a day to catch up on sleep, rest, to dig into creativity, dig in the garden, lay in the sun, dig up old plans. It was a day of not driving the car, but driving in a deeper understanding of me and/or life.
It was the day I would share in this Blob.
My apologies, I let time slip away.
Wow, there is so much Nada in my life now, that I often forget that Monday had passed until Wednesday is practically staring me in the face. This is the case tonight, Cinco de Mayo is about to end in less than an hour.
We are knowingly or not, honoring the victory of May 5, 1862, as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This was when the Mexican army won over Napoleon III and the French army in a place called Puebla. It was a monumental victory, but the struggle for independence over France continued for another 5 or so years.
Many Mexicans of past and current celebrators of Cino de Mayo are similar in their lack of knowledge, to our current unfamiliarity surrounding the truth of Covid-19. The truth has not come to light.
The light of truth of what was(is) really going on
is dim-very dim.
I ask is it a day to celebrate by eating Mexican food and sipping or guzzling margaritas? Is Covid-19 a time to rest, party, reflect, get lazy fat wasted or is it a time to level forward into a better future for oneself, loved ones, and a larger community.
I choose the latter, let's use this Nada time to pump up our dreams, our hopes, our desires and our visions for a better future. Naw let's create a better now-NOW!
Happy Cinco de Mayo
Join me Thursday for a Full Moon MasterMind.

From My Heart
Days go by and Gone by and we are still in the midst of a World Crisis. We will never be the same again, The World will never be the same again.
Join me in thinking, what differences can I make now.
Now in my head, heart, body, emotions, life and in the lives of others.
What is especially needed is our inner outlook being upgraded to a higher ground.
Ready, Set, Join Me in Staying Up, Keeping Up, Being Up. Especially up off that COUCH😂
LAUGHTER IS GREAT MEDICINE, SO IS PHYSICAL MOVEMENT, YOGA, BREATHWORK AND MEDITATION AND PRAYER, AND MORE.
MAY WE PRAY THAT THE CREATOR OF ALL GUIDE HUMANITY TO HIGHER INNER GROUNDS.
THIS TOO SHALL PASS!
LET'S BE INNER WINNERS,
NOW AND WHEN IT THE PANEDEMIC
AND INNER PANIC IS OVER!
Hope everyone is staying safe, keeping the immune system happy and healthy, drinking more water and not just piggin out, during this crisis. Did you know lemon water will raise your immunity as well as the ph of your body. Drink up folks, pull out those lemons or that bottle of lemon juice concentrate from the back of your fridge and omit the sugar, such an easy way to stay on top of your health, flush toxins, stay hydrated and give your mouth and appetite someone besides weight gaining food or liquid stuff.
This full moon is claimed to be the largest moon of the year,
A Super Moon and though not truly pink, it kinda looks so here.
Stay well folks,
this crisis time too, shall pass.
In my opinion the ability to survive and thrive during a World Wide Crisis is about inner ingenuity and love for our Human Family.
All of us are having to Adapt Adjust Accommodate as the teaching of Swami Sivananda proclaim are the highest Yoga.
What soothes you?
What motivates you?
What did you wish you had more time to do, now that we have it by default?
Who do you want to share some love with?
Who can you help?
Wow, I was wanting the Nada Day concept to spread, only The Creator knew we'd be getting it in such a drastic and traumatic way.
Rest, help, play, get healthier, do your wish list things, spread your Joy. Turn off the Tv!
Today is day 9 of Navratri. Reap the harvest of the Creative aspect today. Celebrate day 10 tomorrow with millions of Hindus receiving the blessings upon Humanity from the Goddesses, Gods, Great Spirit, Yahweh, Allah, Jesus, Buddha, Shiva, Jehovah, Most High!
From God in whatever name or form that sings to your Soul- Receive the Blessings Family and please SHARE what you reap with The World.
PLEASE LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE FORTH TO HEAL PLANET EARTH 🌎
Same Sunset yesterday,
Totally different view!
What's your new view?
It is certainly not just another day in the neighborhood, it is not even an atypical Nada Day. Is it Bizarro World that we are currently living in and on?
Well all I can say is that this too shall pass...
...and hopefully soon.
Meanwhile please do some yoga peeps, or another something something with your body-please stay active, eat well, stay safe, breathe deeply(alone), laugh more at silly thoughts and actions and let's support each other into a more unified future.
Let's round out this very square state of affairs.
Tap the photo for a motivating Bizarro World theme song and remember it may be Spring, but Winter is lingering a bit longer and 'soon come' Summer.
Monuments of Life
This was my Mom's surprise 90th birthday, family had gathered from near and far to celebrate, her life in Mardi Gras style and give her thanks for our lives. From the 6 children that she birthed and her 3 step sons our immediately family is easily 100 plus and growing yearly!
One person can make a huge impact, she certainly has!
Among us is a microcosm of the world, our ancestry just from Mom's side makes us mostly Bajan, but also African, Australian, Irish and certainly
My grandparents sailed from Barbados arriving at Ellis Island early 20th century, Mom was born in Harlem in the roaring 20's.
People were happy, even oblivious. Then the crash of 29, life shifted drastically. The story is similiar to our current state from oblivion to overly conscious.
But what I've learned from this lady turning 95 today- joy within doesn't have to fade regardless of what is transpiring around us. Pain comes and goes as does natural disasters, fatal viruses and...
The circle of life continues and so should joy.
May joy live in a special impenetrable place in each human heart, no matter the outward crisis.
Like my Mom, I believe God's got this, all things and nothing is by accident or coincidence.
Can we share a smile, as a placemark to brighten a life, be a reminder, recognize our wildly diverse shared humanity.
-Fun Family Fact-
If my dad were still on the earth, he would be 100 years old today! How wonderful to love and marry someone who shares your birthday.
Mom & Pop
Life holds many joys for us to discover.
-Happy Nada Day-
This is one of my fav photos of Mom that I titled
'I Do Be Jazzed'
This brings back memories of 1977 and finding my joy creating magic in our basement darkroom.
Stop around again tonight, I will share Ms. Dorothy posing joyous for her 95th year.
(photo's came out fuzzy, oh well we can't always get exactly what we want now can we?
I don't have words to share today.
So I will let Rumi express my Nada Day...
Such a restful and peaceful Nada Day today.
I will only share that
I'm excited to be alive,
