today was a whirlwind of a day to say the least.  After traveling for 30+ hours through three countries, sharing with friends and their family, and being back to a full jammed pack day of work, it was hard to find the time to sit and quiet my mind. Today was a constant chatter, welcomed, but constant.  I finally, after midnight found time to sit in my space, do my rituals, and let go.  It's amazing how much chatter we carry around within us, and if we don't find the time to sit and just be mindful the chatter builds.  As I sat in my corner of the house dedicated to my practice, I couldn't help but to be thankful. I count my blessings every day, but on days like today when I interact with so many souls, I really need to take the time to say it, and say it aloud.  So as I sit here and update my website with me latest musings while I travelled, I have to say thank you. Thank you to the universe, to god, to my job, to my friends, and to all of my students that show up day after day to make this life possible for me.   Everything and everyone is a lesson to help me in my path. In the end it may all just be an illusion, but right now, it's an illusion that I'm totally completely in love with.
