Destiny

Destiny. I believe. Do you? In my hand (pictured here) is a bone that I found in Peru while descending from an epic pilgrimage to Apu Asungate. That trip was woah...incredible rites of passage, holy pushing my body beyond its limits, and more sacred than any other experience I've had in life. I loved finding this crescent moon keepsake. Of course it felt special and I keep it in my mesa as a connection to that mountain. But it wasn't until my sweetheart pointed something out that its true meaning appeared. Just over a year later, the bone crescent moon...

I was in need of a an outdoor yoga photo for a flyer last week, so my husband and I drove to the local arboretum for some fun shots. Though Addie is my go-to photographer, she was on the other side of the country, so Adam generously filled in. We worked together until we felt we had a handful of good shots, but of course this handful was out of hundreds. Taking yoga photos is more challenging than any other shoot I’ve been involved in!

Quieting Fear

I kind of giggle at the way I handle fear in my life. It’s quite the internal negotiation, with waves of yes and no, pushing and pulling. It’s truly a fascinating, humanizing experience. If I am presented with an opportunity and feel it’s a good idea for my personal growth or business, I will dive right in and say yes, ignoring any and all fear or self-doubt. I know I will figure out the fine details when the time comes. But as the commitment draws closer, I find myself moving deeper into the place of fear. The nervous part of...
