Experiencing mindfulness is not just about learning a technique or the flavour of the day. True mindfulness is being aware… being present in every moment of every day.

The Trees Were Calling

March 27, 2018

Today the trees were calling to me. After spending a few days deep in technical details my brain had started to hurt and I could see the trees waving their branches out the window. “Come and spend time with us,” they said. “I don’t have time” I replied… “I need to get this done“. Come they […]

March 24, 2018

Today we went from Corpus Christi to South Padre Island, TX. We got up early and checked the weather. Cold in Corpus Christi as the cool air headed down from the north and the warmest place we could find was South Padre Island, so down the road, we went. The sky was overcast and there […]
