Zero

Current music:  Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Zero


This song reminds me of so many things…..(in this order):

-Prepping for Love Parade in Berlin; both years I went: with my mom’s friend and with my best friend stateside
-Walking down the hallway of the Social in downtown Orlando
-Arriving to visit my friend in NY
-Dancing down the safe, quiet allies of Munich
-Barhopping through the streets of rainy SF
-Driving through the well-lit tunnels of Munich & Hungary – each leading to their own amazing & unique destinations.
-Dancing through dark Barcelona alleyways, finding a Picasso museum to wander thru
Playing hookie in the Ibiza airport on the baggage cart w/ my best friend, almost missing our flight back to Germany… we got evil eyes for that one when we boarded the plane lol!

Love the adventures this video reminds me of, and also of their value; they are priceless… and looking forward to many many more : )

B&W, with a little gray.

Cheerio

I just read an article by Deepak Chopra about inspiring your brain.  It’s nothing we aren’t already aware of, so may it serve as a reminder to keep our minds out of the gutter and to offer it much-needed inspiration and “health:”

“Take care of stress.  Avoid dulling routine. Do something creative every day.  Read poetry, spiritual material or anything else that makes you feel uplifted.  Take time to be in nature.  Bond with another person who is heartwarming.  Pay attention to being happy.  Make sure you take time every day by yourself to relax, meditate and self-reflect.  Deal with negative emotions like anger and anxiety.  Focus on activity that makes you feel fulfilled.  Give of yourself.  Follow a personal vision.  Attach yourself to a cause that is bigger than you are.  Take the risk to love and be loved.”

Sorry for the volume level, don’t let this thing blast you out of your seat!

(If you are in real hurry, FF to at least 4:30 to catch some really stunning information)

Fri-Dalai

“Disturbing emotions not only disturb our own state of mind, they also disturb the minds of others. Self-centredness gives rise to fear and insecurity, which in turn creates distrust. This is why having an altruistic attitude brings a great sense of happiness and peace of mind.”

-Dalai Lama

Let’s do our best to keep things peaceful, and our words impeccable.

Happy & safe Easter weekend everyone!

Boo! duh.

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think.  When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”

-Buddha

The picture of Buddha was taken at a friend’s house, while the charm is the newest addition to a bracelet I have : )

You don’t say..

“… evolutionary psychologists Leda Cosmides and John Tooby say that happiness comes from ‘encountering unexpected positive events.'”
