D R E A M: sports car xx

I’m sure my day at the Monticello Motor Club private race track has influenced this post.  Suddenly I’m dreaming of driving through Tuscany in an Alfa Romeo- in my dream it’s in this sports car featured in the short film above.  Though the beauty of the car is the attraction, the way this man speaks Italian is so elegant, it’s worth watching just to hear his voice xx

This is a great, simple article off elephantjournal.com for all those who say, “I’ve tried meditation and I can’t get it.” It takes just a few minutes to read and discover how come it’s ‘not working’ for you… The last line rings so true. If you’re in the New York City area September 16-19 or September 23-26, then considering learning to meditate with Thom Knoles.

W A T C H: “It does the heart good…”

My first encounter with Peter Beard was on the corner of 57th & 5th the first year I moved to New York City.  I had no idea who he was at the time but as this eccentric, alluring man approached me in his velvet slippers and silk scarf I thought to myself, “This person is amazing- magical.”  And I was not wrong.  Since then I’m continuously inspired by the artist, his life work and moved by his commitment to nature, Africa and a shared love for Kenya.  Captured so beautifully by friend and fellow meditator, Derek Peck, this short film, Peter Beard: A Wild Life featured on Nowness.com gives a window into the life of a wonderful, passionate New Yorker who says, “It does the heart good to see what nature has made available to us.”  I could not agree more xx
