Adopting a Minimalist Mindset

22 February, 2016


To quote Madonna, we really do live in a material world.  By the time you drive your new car off the lot, there's a bigger, and better model coming off of the assembly line, or when you buy the latest cell phone, the next one is on the way.  It's gone far beyond keeping up with the Jones's, but rather keeping up with society, and the constant feeling of inadequacy.  How many of us sit in our warm homes, with a fridge full of food, two cars in the driveway, and...read more

Being a Long Distance Grandparent

09 February, 2016

One of my fondest memories as a kid was the road trip to visit my grandparents.

The upside to traveling in order to see them was that the novelty never wore off, and we never took them for gr...read more

From there on out, no more half moon pose for me.



One tip I learned from my physical therapist was not ...read more
