Spring! I am on the road in California re-connecting to friends and loved ones along the way. After months of snow and freezing temperatures in the Rockies, the beauty and warmth of spring is pleasurable indeed!

Sacramento is the capital city of California. Affectionately known as the River City, it was founded at the confluence of three rivers, the Sacramento, the American, and the San Joaquin. I recently spent four lovely days with friends Karla and Phil LaZier in “Sac”. The following photos document an afternoon’s outing on the Sacramento River.

In the Gold Rush years of the 1850’s, river boats were a primary means of transportation between Sacramento and the Pacific Coast via San Francisco. Today the Sacramento River Delta is the shipping and rail center for the Sacramento Valley, an important center of national food production. This afternoon river outing only covers 4-5 miles of river front, but you see within this mileage several old and famous bridges; a fun way to spend a glorious spring day in Northern California!

I hope spring 2014 finds you well and happy. My summer adventures will include the “wilds” of Washington State. Stay tuned!



Family Weddings 2012

During the winter of 2011 I received “Save the Date” notices from my niece Dani and my nephew Mark for their summer weddings of 2012. While living my wandering yogi lifestyle it had been four years since my last visit to the Southeast, the home of my blood relatives. What better way to plan a cross country trip than the weddings of these lovely couples?

As with all weddings there are lots of photos, however gaining access to the best ones can be involved. Here are some beautiful photos from these memorable events that I have been happy to procure. Possibly there will be more photos to share in the future. Both weddings were planned and executed as once in a lifetime blessings. We all wish for the wedded couples much happiness and great success!

Friends…..Along the Way

In the Far East there is an honored tradition whereby a wandering sadhu (one who is on a personal quest towards enlightenment) does not stay more than one or two days in the same location. This hopefully minimizes the development of attachment to people or places. As a modern traveling yogi, I have found that the attachments are there. The trick is to remain unattached to the attachments!

Traveling recently through San Diego and Texas I have been blessed to spend time with many friends and family members. In San Diego I had an opportunity to teach a workshop entitled ” The History of Yoga” for the Mystic Waters Kava Bar and Yoga Studio in North Park. Many thanks to Adesh Khalsa and the participants of her “Kundinyasa” Teacher Training.

In these photos you have a view of some of the personal attachments in my life. I feel tremendously blessed by the love of friends and family who allow me to skip in and out of their lives at sporadic intervals. As I sit here at the edge of a forest (one with internet connectivity!) and watch the baby squirrels at play, I am grateful to all of you who have taught me so much on this path of spiritual freedom. Wherever this note finds you, I am sure the blessings of the Universe are there. Please take the time to connect to them.
