Friday's final thoughts....

Cultivate the garden within.

Live as though you are nobody. Live as though you are a glow of light, and you will see, that bliss that comes out of it. You cannot even compare to any other joy through any senses.

God regards with merciful eyes not what you are nor what you have been but what you wish you to be.

You can search the whole universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than yourself. Since each and every person is so precious to themselves, let the self-respecting harm no other being.

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be

Behind these hazel eyes....

(Well, my eyes are green but - you get the point.)

So, I'm going to go on a limb and make myself sound "old" with this post.
Yet it's relevant and "in my face" so to speak, so I can't resist.

I'm a huge music afficianado -- all genres, all artists -- and if you didn't already know that about me, well now you do.

Growing up, the stigma regarding music was "hidden messages" in heavy metal songs - specifically those by Ozzy Osbourne and songs such as "Suicide Solution". There was concern that the song wasn't about alcoholism, but contained subliminal messages that if the album was played backwards, might inspire young minds to end their lives. (Seriously??!!?? Seriously!!!) And so I, being a complete lyrical fantatic used to love to analyze all the lyrics to songs and point out to people how songs by groups such as Metallica, Megadeth, Ozzy and the like weren't about dark topics -- sort of "don't let the loud guitar riffs fool you". (Hello, as if "Master of Puppets" wasn't the best anti-drug song ever?!?!)

But today...well, who needs stigmas and fears? Songs are blatantly overt in their sexual overtones, as well as discussions about drinking and partying. Listen - I love the songs myself, but where I struggle is that there are very few songs that my children can listen to without feeling like "oh, shoot - do they really understand what they're singing?" It's unrealistic to keep them away from it, nor do I really feel that I should; but at the same time, at risk of sounding like a prude -- I wonder how to manage what they hear.

At one point, they knew they couldn't listen to "I kissed a girl" by Katy Perry; though I told them it was because my son is too young to think about kissing girls at this tender age. But who doesn't love Kesha's catchy tunes - and to have them singing about "getting drunk", "touching junk" (um, who wants to explain what that means? I just told them it means their belongings, like purses, wallets, etc....) or having the "police shut them down". To their tender minds, when the police come it's to save you -- not get you in trouble.

So, as a Mom who's trying to maintain the innocence of her children but yet not stifle them -- I'm running into a bit of an obstacle. Let alone the fact that I'm all about expression in it's purest form of music; but just wondering at what point will music become entirely inappropriate for children under a particular age?

And equally as important --how sad would that be.....?

Upside turn me inside out, and round...round...

So, today was quite the rollercoaster kind of day.
I should've gone to yoga and de-toxified......but it was late, and I instead ate Chinese food and had a glass of wine.

It started off okay... and then it sort of hit a bump.
The location I opened my store in, was a dry town previously - meaning no alcohol. Well, someone wrote to the paper and complained about having a store such as mine in town - and got City Hall involved by calling them out publicly; so, I had the Liquor Commission come by today to inform me that they're going to address the complainant and that while they feel I've got the gourmet aspect down well -- I should bring even more items in to keep people like him quiet.

Mmmkay. I always thought majority ruled, but I guess that squeaky wheel wins more often than not. And trust me when I tell you, I've got lots of gourmet going on in there. I add new food weekly, so I'm not at all concerned about that. It's just frustrating that I bring commerce to the community and run a great business - and I've got to worry about someone who's admittedly never stepped foot into my shop, and their opinions? Interesting.

Case in point: as I was feeling less than happy with the aforementioned conversation, I recieve a fantastic phone call from the Chamber of Commerce telling me that this month's edition of Boston Magazine gives us a fantastic little plug! How exciting!

So, in the past month - the store has been featured on Chronicle, WBZ Radio's Connoiseur Corner, WDIS AM Fairness Doctrine, the Boston Globe's Bargain Bins -- and now Boston Magazine. I couldn't be any more fortunate in the media department, truly.

I went to visit my Mother afterwards, and had an.....interesting visit. I'm not going to comment more on it, other than to say it was a good visit -- but an emotional one; and I hadn't been prepared for that. She looks fantastic, you truly wouldn't think her prognosis is what it is. It's almost mindblowing at times....

Anyway, needless to say - I'm tired, and while I should have gone straight to the studio for an intensely hot class, I opted for the easy way out complete with a glass of wine.

Truthfully, I don't know which one would help me sleep better tonight.
But tomorrow, is another day.....

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Get into the groove.....

So, I don't want to say anything but..... it seems like those "intangibles" of Jason's that weren't "so important" last season, are looking pretty darn important these days -- aren't they? Funny to hear sports radio today talking about it. I don't want to say "I told you so", but......

Okay, so I'm getting ready to run the Mother's Day 3.5 mile race. I've only run 3.5 miles outside a couple of times this Spring, but I've been running at minimum a mile per night on the treadmill. It's not a lot, but enough to keep my juices flowing so I'll be all set for the race. I can totally run 3.5 -4 miles outside not a problem without any preparation, but given the fact that I've got all these sore muscles from the Yoga Marathon, it seems to make sense to keep moving while the body is feeling it. I've also started lifting again (just lightly, mostly for sculpting) and I am going back to yoga classes at night once a week. I've really been doing nothing for me and I need to get back to doing a little something good that's not for me as a Mom -- but for me as a person. (Seriously, don't you want to shake me and say "get a hobby!" Well, I would if I had free time! Yoga and running are my hobbies! ) Partly the reason why I only run 1 mile at home is because it's something that I can squeeze in under 10 minutes! Once I'm home from the store - I'm Mom, and just because I'm not the only grown up home doesn't mean my day ends. Oh no, it just begins....

So I'm trying to get into a new rhythm of energizing, and it's starting with this. Hopefully, this is just the beginning.

(Oh, and a quick postscript: try spamming now my little solicitious friends...just try.)

You say it best....when you say nothing at all.

It's funny, but I don't really have a specific subject to talk about today., without some semblence of a rant.
Go figure.

But, in some ways it's like being in a room that's quiet. Being with someone whom you don't have to have conversation with in order to feel comfortable. Sometimes, there's a comfort in that silence.

The quiet allows you to decompress....and take stock in what's going on around you, without getting lost in the chaos of it all; put things in perspective, and take them at face value rather than reading into them.

The lack of substance today, might actually be more substantial than it would otherwise seem.

Yoga is bodily gospel. ~Reaven Fields

Today is the 108 Sun Salutation Fundraiser for the Jimmy Fund.
It's an amazing practice -- three hours long -- with the presence and focus being on the cause.

Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskara is a dynamic asana sequence of 12 postures performed as one continuous flow. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois calls 108 sun salutations a yoga mala, after the garland of prayer beads. There are 108 beads on every strand. Each completed sequence becomes a bead of the mala; therefore, every mala calls for 108 sun salutations. Regardless of the meaning of 108 it is important to remember that a yoga mala is a form of meditation and like the prayer beads, each sequence should be practiced with sincerity, devotion and full attention.

(If you practice, then you'll appreciate that we do one full Surya Namaskara A and B to be one complete Sun Salutation.)

Why 108? Well....

• A Harshad number is 108
(harshad in sanskrit means
great joy)
• 108 energy lines join to
form the heart chakra
• With 54 letters in the
sanskrit alphabet each
has masculine and
feminine equals 108
• 1 stands for higher truth
0 for emptiness
8 for infinity

Whatever you're doing today, enjoy; but take a moment to step back and thinmk about those who might be struggling or suffering today - and send some positive energy and good thoughts their way.

Dear Spammer from China.....

Imagine my surprise, when I log on and see 4 comments on a blog post I made....just to find that they are regarding purchasing "top quality fashion designer" items. And here I was thinking that maybe I had a new reader who was also a Red Sox fan from your side of the world. Silly me...

Just a word to the wise.... go post on someone else's blog. Mine isn't going to get you much play my friend. In case you haven't noticed, I don't have hundreds of comments on my blog - so my readership isn't tremendous (though loyal and steady, thank you!) -- so why not do your unwanted solicitation on someone else's more popular site. Maybe you'll get someone to click through to where ever it is you want them to go.

I will find a way to block you.... oh yes, I will.

Have a great day!

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it....

So, while I'm beyond psyched over the last two wins the Sox pulled out -- let me digress for just a moment: How's about those 9 steals, 9 walks and 2 pass balls?
Clearly, Martinez is not the "second coming" as it seems some people would've liked to think.

Even on Jason's worst day.....there was never that kind of a statistic.
Wakefield pitching, or otherwise.

So to all those drum banging "get rid of 'Tek, he's old..." naysayers my question is:
How do you like him now?

Listen, I'm no one - but if you ask me, you can fix some of the struggles the Sox are facing at the moment pretty easily. Put Martinez as DH until Ortiz can get back on track - and put Jason back behind the plate. Seems like a "no brainer" to me!

Just sayin'....

(I know I'm a little behind the curve on Sox talk, but I just don't have the time to blog as readily as I used to!)

Here's another little tidbit to be excited about: Wes Welker already running patterns?? Did I hear that correctly? Holy Healing Batman.... !!! I'm so looking forward to watching the draft and seeing what moves the Pats make, because they truly need to make some big ones.

Tuesdsay's Thoughts....

1. Yesterday was the first Red Sox game on Patriots Day that I have not attended in 5 years. And you know what - I think it's the first one they lost in about that much time? I don't want to say it's because I wasn't there, but.... ah, but I kid. They may have lost some of those games but truthfully I don't remember.

2. And sadly enough, yesterday was the first time in about 10 years that I wasn't at the Marathon. I love, love, love going to the Boston Marathon. It's amazing, and awe inspiring and I am sad that I wasn't able to go. It was for no reason other than my girlfriend who I usually go with had to cancel this year, and I just didn't have anyone else to go with. There's always next year I suppose, right....?

3. Today is "Girl's Day". It's school vacation week and so today I'm taking Princess Petunia out and about. We're supposed to be picking my Mom up and having lunch with her, assuming she's feeling up to going - and then I'm just not sure where we'll end up. When you're soon to be 6 years old - the world is your oyster! I'm hoping that she picks something like getting our toesies done, because Mommy could use a good pedicure as well -- but truthfully, even if she just wants to hang out at the park, it's all good.

4. Saturday is the Yoga Marathon to benefit the Jimmy Fund. Okay, so it's been since September since I've hit the mat -- but I'm doing it anyway. It's a tradition, I've been doing it since the inception and I refuse to miss it. Sure I'll be crazy sore afterwards, but it's for a fantastic cause and truly.... it will be worth it.
4a. I need to find center again. Jumping into the marathon will help me as well. Yoga is such an amazing balance for life - it provides a physical workout like no other, but it also provides an emotional balance. I don't know how to explain it other than it's like putting life back into perspective. There is nothing about the yoga class that does that for you -- as far as preachings, or conversations; it all comes from within.

It's a dual purposed activity and one that I have to make time for in my life, because I know that I truly feel better as a whole when I practice.

Signs, signs, everywhere are signs...

I've always expressed that I believe in magic and miracles.
I also choose to believe that when we lose people we love -- they aren't entirely gone. Their physical being is gone, but their energy never dies; it just manifests into something that we may not be able to recognize easily, but yet it's there just the same.

Today, I choose to believe there was a sign of someone. It was subtle, but yet so odd to have had occur, it's rather difficult to ignore.

My mother's older sister Saralee passed away when I was 15. She was 39 years old, and had a medical condition that was impossible to have detected in advance; it took her with literally no warning. It was sudden, tragic - and life altering for us all. She was an incredibly strong person, who was always helping people and loved adventures -- and was always taking me on the weekends to go camping with my cousins, or to the zoo....or just to come spend the weekend at her house. I named my Princess Petunia for her, actually. I didn't use her name specifically, but something in the general vicinity of it.

Today, my cousin - her daughter - came and visited me at the store. It was a crazy, busy day and I had appointment after appointment with reps, which I hadn't completely expected. One of the reps brought a wine maker with her to sample me on a new portfolio release. I asked my cousin if she wanted to sample as well, and of couse she did, who wouldn't - right? So as the rep lines the bottle up, my cousin looks at me and says "oh my god - did you see the name on the label?".

Would you believe, it was Arrowood Winery's "Saralee Vineyards".
What are the chances....?
Saralee isn't the most common of names; neither is the spelling of it being all one word.

Chalk it up to coincidence......? Sure. I could.

But I'm more inclined to think that it's a sign. My cousin didn't have to be there when I was being tasted on the line; five minutes earlier....five minutes later -- she may not have been there. I could've seen that label alone and thought "oh, isn't that nice..." and had memories of my aunt flash through my mind and moved on. But to have my cousin be there to taste the wine and have it be that particular vineyard, well....that's just too specific to blame on the randomness of life.

I'd like to think that was some semblence of energy ensuring that all the components were there to allow a message of saying "I'm still here" come through in a way that we would recognize and embrace.

And if I'm wrong...well.
Then I don't want to be right. Because it's better to have hope and faith, than not.
Wouldn't you agree?

Great things DO come in small packages....!!

So, Target had a sale on IPod Shuffles. Having only the Nano, which is rather old at this point now -- it's been feeling too large and cumbersome to run with at this point -- and I much prefer to use it in the store for ambiance so.....seeing the ad in the Sunday paper, I went there and bought it. Who needs more than 500 songs when running, right? It's not like this girl's doing the Marathon.....yet.

Love it. Love it!
It's tiny!!

I was in no way prepared for how small it was, and the best part is -- not just the voice over option that announces my next song -- but I can control the volume and the fast forward or rewind from the earpiece cord. (ta da!)

I always have to run with my IPod in my hand which can make my shoulders ache a bit from being tensed; this allows me to run hands free.... I am so loving it.

Highly, highly recommend it.

You say you want a revolution.....

I'm all for the Tea Party coming to Massachusetts.
Taxation without representation is something that we should all be opposed to; and being a purveyor of alcohol -- we feel one of the pains first hand with the recent taxes imposed.

But I'm sorry.....
Sarah Palin is not whom I identify with.

I have some issues with her being the voice at the Party.
It's not that she's a Republican, because clearly I don't have issue with that. It's her. Almost everything about her rubs me the wrong way. So much so that even when she's on point with her comments, I can't even hear what she's saying because I'm already put off.

I'd have much preferred almost anyone else to be here and speak out.

Your birthday is a special time to celebrate the gift of 'you' to the world.”

How's about a little home running to get the party started?

So it's Jason's 38th birthday.

And me, without a gift to give.....
(what.... my undying affection isn't enough?!?! Stop, say it isn't so!)

I wonder what kind of wine he enjoys...?
Well, I guess I'll just have to guess as I have a glass and wish him a happy day.

Thank God for DVR.....

And, TGIF might I add....

So, I'm catching up on American Idol which I missed this week due to a life of busy-ness (as opposed to business), and while I know the judges used their save (truly, I'm dissapointed because while "Big Mike" is talented, I don't know that I think he'd be worth the save. )I don't think he could win it all, truthfully - but hey, that's just my opinion. I just wish the radio station that gave the info away warned me about the spoiler alert so I could change the channel!)

Tonight is going to be a fantastic dinner now that my detox is over. I have to be honest and say that I didn't omit all protein this week -- I ended up having fish with dinner at night which really dissapoints me so next week I'll do it again, but the right way. I still felt great, but it's just not the same, you know what I mean? So tonight I'm going to indulge just a style ribs, salad with rice & shrimp, grilled asparagus -- and a delicious glass of wine. All while watching Tim Wakefield pitch for the Sox, and snuggled in pajamas. Seriously, call me crazy -- call me old, but that sounds like a perfect Friday night!

This weekend could potentially be pretty day tomorrow if the fields aren't closed due to flooding from todays rain, and a birthday party. Sunday, nothing planned yet though I have to say I have been craving to go to a really good brunch! And there are so few good places to go to, but I heard that there's a hotel near the favorite ice cream farm we attended last weekend has a brunch that is "to die for". I'm working that angle as an option for Sunday, so my fingers are crossed. Besides, I need to have some yummy food to burn off as I run Monday morning and do my detox all over again!

And then we'll start all over again on Monday......

However you're spending your weekend, may it be blessed with laughter and love....happiness and good fortune. Take time to stop and enjoy the flowers that are blossoming everywhere and enjoy the beauty of Spring.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Who let the dogs out....who let the dogs out....

So, it was quite the game last night....
Welcome to Boston, New York. Last night is just a little sample of how we roll....
(Though truly, Beckett was off. Really off....)

I've got some fantastic pictures from Easter that I have yet to download but must share. I can't stand how cute the kids were - -and we had a picture perfect day. It was gorgeous outside. We ended up on Saturday going to our favorite ice cream place and having lunch, playing mini golf and being incredibly indulgent in everything we ate.

Speaking of indulgences, yesterday was my last day of doing so. Today, I started my detox and I had my first run since September. Pretty good, 3.25 miles in 36 minutes. I'm not going for time so much as I am endurance, but I felt great -- no breathing issues or side stiches, just some minor tweaking in my knee (the one that didn't have surgery -- not sure what that's all about!) and I was euphoric after, which is sort of the high that you chase when you run. I do need to get myself fitted for good running sneakers - I have yet to do that and I do believe I'm going to do that tomorrow. It's a nice slow week for me at the store this week, so I should be able to catch up on little errands I haven't had the opportunity to do.

It's almost impossible to be in anything but a good mood these next few days. Fantastic weather is on the agenda, baseball is back in season -- and so to wake up and see sunny skies makes everything seem happy and shiny. It even makes my headaches tolerable -- and just a reminder that I need to go back to acupuncture. Yoga is on the agenda this week as well....and maybe, a new lip gloss too.

I've neglected myself quite a bit over these last few months, and I think this week it's time that I show myself a little love.

And that is how this girl is going to roll.

Saturday, April 03, 2010

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood....

Saturdays are my favorite days.

They're the "Mommy & Me" days with my kids and this particular Saturday is sparkling and beautiful! I haven't quite decided how we're going to spend the day just yet... We have to do a little Easter shopping, pass by my store for a few -- and then the day is ours.

So, I'm just finishing up my coffee before I drag myself into the shower as I'm feeling particularly lazy at the moment -- and then we should be off to some semblence of an adventure.

Have a beautiful Easter, and if you aren't celebrating -- then have a fabulous weekend in general. Every day is a gift, live in the moment, and enjoy those around you. It doesn't take a religious belief to appreciate your loved ones, or to just enjoy the beauty of the world around you....that kind of inspiration comes from within. If you have to dig a little deeper than usual to find it due to circumstances, that's fine -- but make sure that you do. It will be worth it, I promise.

(And after all that insightful appreciation -- be sure to catch the Red Sox season opener tomorrow night! Rumor has it that this girl might be attending the Yankees game on Wednesday...maybe.....!)

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Hey, what's going on? How are you? Yeah, oh it's just me, Stewie, just being myself, ah yeah

It's Thursday -- and it's gorgeous -- and it's a great day to be happy!

9. Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently wearing?
New Balance

10. Bright or Dark room?
Bright. If I'm tired, I can sleep inside the sun for God's sake. I prefer a bright sunny room to a dark, dreary one - but preferably natural or incandescent light. I'm not a big fan of artificial and high, bright lighting.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
They've all been pretty great, truthfully. A cop out answer of sorts I suppose, but it's the truth.

My favorite pic of the kiddies at Boston Common from this past summer.

I hope not. The grass is always greener my friends....

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
Yes. I hope I am truly as kind as I think I am.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
I still haven't gotten one.... it would be in an area that no one other than myself could see.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?

38. Would you move for the person you loved?

39. Are you touchy feely?
Yes -- and no. When I speak with someone, I'm very warm and might touch their arm; when I shop, I'm a see/touch/feel kind of girl; but I don't like people touching me. People in my "space" bothers me at times. Unless they belong in my space....

40. What’s your life motto?
Live like your dying.... you only get one chance at life, so don't hold back. Play hard, Love freely and laugh often.

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?

I always say I'm self sufficient -- but no, I can not change the oil in my car.

46. Can you cook?
Yes, I can -- and I love to. Is it always good? Well, that's subjective. But it's definitely something I truly enjoy.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?
I only know as far back as my grandparents. All the records were destroyed in WWII going further back .

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?
I can't remember, which tells you how often I dress up. I know this past May I went to a wedding and wore a fun little dress; that might be the last time I dressed up for fun, rather than for working. Note to self: Must dress up more!! Code for: Go places more often!!

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
My back is a little sore but other than that, I'm good! I'm so overdue for a massage, and that could be the perfect fix.

50. Have you been burned by love?
Like a moth to a flame.... .
