Back From The Forest

Hello! I know I haven’t said much lately, as I was taking a much needed vacation from work and Mr. Computer, in order to center myself again. Started yoga again last week, and feel healed from the experience (with much soreness not anticipated in various muscles that were previously out of practice!). Teresa, the yoga instructor, reminded us all, “If you are thinking, you are not breathing…Yogis from long ago used this simple method to stop the activity of busy Mind. Focusing solely on the breath, you can come to calm relaxation, and control Thought”. In the hustle and bustle, I had forgotten to relax, and just breathe. Can’t wait to go back to class.

I also stepped into the magical forest of the Sequoia, and have to go back when the Autumn arrives. That is definitely my favorite season.


And In the meantime, I also attended my cousin Andy Abad’s (of The Blue Agave) debut performance at The Ford Theater! His Wife, Stephanie Amaro of the band, Trio Ellas, is also the vocalist for my cousin’s band, The Blue Agave. The Trio Ellas debut album “Con Ustedes” earned them a nomination for a 2012 Latin GRAMMY®! Both Trio Ellas and The Blue Agave rocked the stage that magic night which inspired me beyond words in my musical endeavors.
