Fitness Madison WI
for the past year, I have been playing with different ways to offer movement coaching online…PDF documents, a training library with a password, an online training app, teleportation or astral projection… and they’ve all been a bit of a bust for me. Pictured: my iPhone’s “PHOTOS” collection. You can see that it is full of
Transorfming-my-Identity
Something was wrong. Something big. And I couldn’t put my finger on it until I realized that I was hiding a big part of myself from the world and – really – from myself. My work, my life and my identity would need to be unearthed and rebuilt, and I had no idea where to

I Believe In Singing

We’re really good at going all Indiana Jones on our own suffering We’ll dig for months to pry out the reason for that prickle of anxiety or spike of sadness… (and that’s assuming we’ve moved past the “why did I do that dumb thing” into “oh. I feel that annoying thing again” which takes a

Quick hello / post to jump back on the writing wagon now that I’m back from Peru / back in my apartment from a house sitting stint / no longer losing copious amounts of fluid each day via blowing my nose (stupid head cold.) Will be back to regularly scheduled posting now!! SO. I was

Tiny Habit Finder!

Healing Work-Madison-WI
I don’t really mind Winter all that much. I have a very nice heating blanket, a giant stash of tea and California wine. I’m quite happy to watch lots of Netflix and work through a stack of books with a warm dog body. My apartment is really lovely – a collection of cast off furniture

feeling stuck-buddism-madison-wi-fitness
We get stuck for a lot of reasons. In Buddhism, there is a philosophy (in my own words) that we suffer and struggle because we get “hooked” into attachment or aversion. 1.

Tiny Changes: Update

I don’t really have an operable dimmer switch — it’s currently being installed. I’m pretty much all in or all out. Sleeping kitten purring or She-Hulk on a rampage. Whenever I try to make small changes in my life, this comes back to bite me in the ass. I make the classic mistake of throwing
