Stepping forth...

well, here goes my first attempt at a blog.  for those of you who know the whole story, i don't need to explain.  for those of you who don't, I will give the short version.  after three very full and rewarding years in san francisco i have finally heeded the call to seek out a slower pace. i have always dreamed of living by the mediteranean sea for a bit, dreamed of fishing boats, water, sunshine and salt. i also love paris. and yoga, and finding spontaneous adventure in the mysterious and playful abyss of the unknown.
so i bought a ticket to europe and find myself just days away from setting out across the seas. my plans include some anusara yoga training, a studio in southern italy, a scooter, a camera, a swim suit, and complete surrender to the whims of grace.  i envision that this journey will be somewhat of a pilgrimage...a time to ask myself big questions and listen for the answers... a time to nurture intuition and strike up a conversation with my heart...a turning in as much as a venturing out...

the journey began last week as i packed my car full of everything i own and set out with my trustworthy road companion rob, towards dad's house in lyons, colorado, with a quick stop in arizona to soak up some sweet family time and early summer sunshine.  i have come to learn that everything is a pulsation, so it makes sense that the journey begins with going home.  home to wind sun desert rivers, home to the place where i was born, home to family, home to love, home to the wild impulse of my heart.

i can't express how grateful i am to be setting off with so much love, support and excitement at my back, and for all of you who have expressed interest in my wanderings. hopefully this will offer just a little taste of my experiences...
