After meeting up with the fabulous Kara Lydon at the Stuff Food Issue release party, I headed Cambridgeside, to join my TedX friends at Hotel Veritas. After being the entire life of the party at Simple Truth (our experience eloquently summed up here) I got a chance to peek into the most impressive cocktail bar I have ever seen constructed in a Cambridge college apartment. I hope to return soon.

Mind Over Madness Yoga-welcoming the summer solstice with other yogis in Times Square.
Donna Rubin of Bikram Yoga under the brilliant rays of the sun-a a natural studio. 26 poses done twice brought back a feeling of comforting known, in the midst of chaotic unknown.
Steph for a Vinyasa Flow with Dana Flynn of Laughing Lotus. An inspirational, fun flow class while we felt like performers as hundreds of spectators watched our harmony.
yes, this really happened.
Alice's Tea Cup
Lunch and Best coffee ever with my aunt and then a long bus ride home
This week I have a dictator party, work at the farmers market, socials for success at alibi, and a cocktail tasting.
Let me leave you with part of Mary Oliver's poem- "When Death Comes":
Is yoga a spectator sport? Tell me something that made you ecstatic, happy, smile, laugh, shine today!
And therefore I look upon everything
as a brotherhood and a sisterhood,
and I look upon time as no more than an idea,
and I consider eternity as another possibility,
and I think of each life as a flower, as common
as a field daisy, and as singular,
and each name a comfortable music in the mouth
tending as all music does, toward silence,
and each body a lion of courage, and something
precious to the earth.
When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.
