I am learning to stop competing with myself when I practice yoga.
I love the sound of rivers. Especially big Montana rivers like the Yellowstone, the Madison, the Firehole.
I love sports underdog movies.
I look 10 years younger than I am.
There is nothing better than sleeping in a bed in a tent. Not being alone is actually better.
I believe there’s only one rule - to not trespass on the rights of others.
I struggle with assumptions, my own especially. Curiosity is possibly the most admirable trait I find in people.
I meditate daily. And I consider watching international soccer on television a kind of meditation, as well.
I believe that we’re all doing our best, moment to moment.
I aim to be like water that flows compassionately into the cracks and crevasses of my still hidden self. And into the same places of a woman.
I practice yoga regularly and volunteer at Yoga on the Labyrinth. I meditate every day. I have a weekly improv work-out. I play soccer twice a week so often I walk with a sexy limp.
I am helping and witnessing my son turn into a good man.
