A few of my favorite things in no particular order...

1. The moments when you take in a concept or thought that reflects the essence of love, truth, understanding, compassion, stillness, space, wholeness, unity, and it really resonates & you have a feeling of suddenly remembering, like you've known this all along.

2. Warm, sunny days on which to take long mountain hikes.

3. The experience of being well nourished, full of energy, flexible, strong, loved, loving.

4. Perfectly brewed teas of many flavors like Rose Marzipan, Lady Grey, Chai, Plum White Tea.

5. A rainy day with a good book, the above mentioned tea, and a comfy place to curl up.

6. Live music & dancing with large groups of funky people.

7. A farmers market full of fresh, locally grown and produced vegetables, herbs, dairy, meats, plants, flowers, prepared foods, honey...the sights, sounds, smells, textures, colors, flavors....

8. A dinner table seated with 2, 12, or more people, full of dishes prepared with fresh whole ingredients and love. Music, laughter, genuine conversation.

9. When you realize that a streak of good changes in your life have all of the sudden become regular habits.

10. When you reconnect with a friend you hardly ever get to see and it's like you didn't miss a day.

11. Encountering people who are fully engaged in living their lives for the benefit of the greater good.

12. Resounding rolling oms in a big room full of people right after a group yoga practice.

13. Making things like earrings and felt food.

14. Chicken coops.

Un velero llamado libertad. ~Jose Luis Perales

Ayer se fue, tomó sus cosas y se puso a navegar, una camisa, un pantalón vaquero, y una canción. Dónde irá, dónde irá.

Se despidió, y decidió batirse en duelo con el mar, y recorrer el mundo en su velero, y navegar, navegar...

Y se marchó, y a su barco le llamó Libertad, y en el cielo descubrió gaviotas, y pintó, estelas en el mar.

Y se marchó, y a su barco le llamó Libertad, y en el cielo descubrió gaviotas, y pintó, estelas en el mar.

Su corazón, buscó una forma diferente de vivir,
pero las olas le gritaron: vete, con los demás, con los demás.

Y se durmió, y la noche le gritó: donde vas, y en sus sueños dibujó gaviotas, y pensó, hoy debo regresar.

Y regresó, y una voz le preguntó: como estás, y al mirarla descubrió, unos ojos, azules como el mar.
