Living Life as a Miracle: The Yoga Path

 

800px-YogaClass

This series of events occurred about ten years ago, in what seems like in a different century rather than recent past. It was an ambitious time in life, when everything was open and possible. It was my Saturday morning ritual to walk the two miles to a yoga facility in the local shopping mall.… ...

The Power of 1

in 1921 a playwright coined the word “robot” for a science fiction play. I learned this fact at a UC Irvine lecture showcasing their center dedicated to stroke rehabilitation with the use of robotics. Credible, incredible stuff.

80 years later, the world had ASIMO,  which is an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility. ...

BUGS!

Here it is, at last, a brand new book for your shelf!

Oh, that’s right!

In California we don’t have bugs, though our small garden could use some help…other than the birds, raccoons, and squirrels helping themselves to our produce.

People Pie

Pi R SquareI like pie. You may, too…it’s just fruit. Oh, and a little flour and sugar, two of the deadly great whites. It’s a self-delusion to hide behind, to say that pie is just fruit. I can’t stand behind anything because my body’s plump.… ...

Costco Community

Costco cart

 

Costco shopping would be a great work out plan…if it weren’t for all of the food vendor carts with samples. Small bites of this and small bites of that can add up to pounds of padding. Yum – let me pause to snack rather than stack the cart! ...
