About Daily Joy

Inner peace is my goal. I am humbled by the possibility of helping others experience joy, through the stillness of yoga, a beautifully designed home, the art of fashion, or words on a page. Here I will share thoughts, words, images, concepts, products, and events that bring joy into my life, in the hopes of adding joy to yours.

Namaste

I just returned from the Eckhart Tolle School of Awakening that began in Pacific Grove, California. As I walked the paths built to protect the surrounding fragile sand dunes, it was a beautiful metaphor for life. Sometimes steady, sometimes unexpectedly challenging but...

While meditating this morning my attention shifted to tingling sensations in my hands. I began thinking about how amazing my fingers were. They feed and clean my body, they type on my computer, pet my dog Biskit, and continually make my life more convenient. When inspi...

Everything is experienced in the now. The future, the past and all of life. When I stay present in this moment and feel it through my breath or experience it through any one of my senses, I know I am alive.
