'Tis the sealing season.

'Tis the sealing season.

 I haven't got my assessment report back yet, but I expect I will soon enough. It doesn't matter since I already have a fair idea of some of the things I need to do.
Each night cold air drips down my basement walls. I've put it off for long enough already: Insulate and seal up the rims and put blue foam wall to wall.

I won't know until I get my report if it's worth it to go for gold and insulate the basement to R-23, or if most of the energy savings are already realized at R-10 with a less expensive, thinner wall.

Is there such a thing as an advanced Yogi?

Is there such a thing as an advanced Yogi?

A beginner's mind.

Every time you step onto your mat, every time you interact with someone, every time you head into the world and take a deep breath is an opportunity to practice, and opportunity to let go and to open your mind to the possibilities.

It doesn’t matter if you have never practiced Yoga before, or if you are a longtime practioner, once you take a step onto your mat it is a new experience. With a beginners mind you have no expectation, you can be open to whatever the experience provides you. The longer I have been practicing Yoga, the more humble I become.

COMMENT: What is my world?

COMMENT: What is my world?

I am not sure how it is for you, but for me, truth is not so much in seeing, but in questioning.

If I should see someone on the corner, or in the doorway, looking for help with something, and my question is: “I wonder what he did, or did not do, to end up like that?" then I have created a truth about my world and how I see it. I have created a truth about my world and how it sees me.

Life as Betty....

It was my birthday last week and totally contrary to my personality instead of heading out and hitting the trails I just hung out and took a day off. It was awesome to sit back and relax with the knowledge of a weekend of biking just on the horizon. This weekend past was the annual Silver Mtn Brewsfest. Silver mountain is in Kellogg, Idaho and a great place to go downhill. The Brewsfest is a super cool event; for less than the price of a regular lift ticket you get to ride the mountain bike trails, try out beers from 30 different breweries and listen to cool music.
