Yes. I did.

Hello friends. And lurkers. Yes, you, you weirdo in Toronto- I see you checking my blog on an alarmingly regular basis...

Crazy January, yes?

Two weeks ago, it was negative something degrees and I kept finding myself repeating "Winter is coming", a la Game of Thrones.  And today, Mid-January, it is a balmy sixty-four degrees. Sixty-four degrees as in I am about to put on running shorts- SHORTS- and go for a run. I have a definite love/hate for this whole global warming business...

Me, I have been busy being. Just being. Not tweeting, not instagramming everything, not four-squaring,  not facebooking, not blogging, not even writing. Just being.




Let me tell you, simply being and being present is h-a-r-d work. I get so used to multitasking and being 'connected' that I realized that I was letting go of being. So, instead of filling my to-do list with piles of useful errands, I have cleared it out.

Left my phone on the nightstand for hours at a time (terrifying). Went running without music (my own thoughts turned out to be quite a cacaphony). Gone days without Facebook (weird). Woke up on the weekend and just enjoyed my coffee (liberating). Made lists that involved nonsensical to-do's, like "breathe." "play with the monkey." "do ten yoga poses." "buy new art supplies." (fun versus guilt-inducing).

So, anyhoo, this has been my January. Just being. Hope yours is full of being and true connectedness too. Lest you think that I have been all intentional and deep and profound this month, I shall leave you with this picture of my morning...

Yes I did. Party tip, Anti-bacterial ointment neither gives you fresh breath nor foams...
Peace and love and mushy stuff, cupcakes. Enjoy this gorgeous day :-)
