Life con't - Yoga, Running, Espanol, Passover and August Gold

I am feeling Spring in the air now.. and it sounds almost summerish coming for the end of the week. I'm excited for that.. I am such a sun lover!!! Love this warm weather!

I just got in from running again! : )  & I just went and picked up 3 Yoga DVD's from the library, 4 more in transit and more waiting on hold!!  I told a girl in Cuba that I would look into sending her some Yoga DVD's and finally getting at it, well, researching, but close. I was feeling a bit bad that it was taking me this long to get at it.. I figured there must be some reason.. and maybe, just maybe its because it feels like exactly the right time to really get inspired myself. I just checked one of them out, it was so peaceful, on a sandbank.. I felt like it was in Cuba. I am so up for being transported, me and my yogamat to a sandbank on a Veradero beach. : )

Food-wise, Yesterday (& the day before) I prepared a big Raw Passover Seder-Dinner. It was great. & I've been really into raw cheeses lately.. and tomorrow I have a testing for a few 'rice'-based dishes, and more.. so much to experiment with. How wonderful to be so into something I love!!
Did you know that many sushi chefs spend years on getting the sushi rice down down before they get to move on to rolling. wow. I love Japanese culture.

& as for my Spanish, I am excited that I have downloaded on my iPod - The 4 Agreements in Spanish - Los Cuatro Acuerdos - audiolibro!! It's awesome, so exciting to understand it so well. I know the book so well, have read it a few times and love it. I also recently just bought "En Mis Propios Paabras - por Su Santidad el Dalai Lama"  In my Own Words by the Dalai Lama, but in Spanish! ; ) an introduction to his teachings and philosophy. Ahh.. life is good.

A little piece of paper next to me reads (this is from a a podcast-interview with August Gold, who I really enjoyed. I just went through a small pile of papers, tossed some, kept some, this is selected at random) :

"You must welcome everything"
"I agree. I agree." 

"Life is in constant conversation with us. Our job is to keep the door open to every conversation life wants to have with us."

"Life leads those who will & those who won't, it drags."

She has an inspiring morning ritual which she shared, called the 5-5-5 plan (or maybe I made that up ; )
 To start your day is a very positive way, she recommends doing this:
Take 5 minutes and Read a book of higher truth, something inspiring, a spiritual or inspiring text which you enjoy. Then..
Take 5 minutes and Write - what you are feeling inside ..and then
Take 5 minutes and just Sit. Not even meditating, she said she didn't even want to call it meditating (but it could be) just sitting in silence ..she suggested you could take a statement of Truth and sit with it.
By doing this you are developing a conversation with life that is so important.

Hi Robin;
just spent about 20 minutes on your terrific website. It's been a while since I visited and it just sparkles. I especially enjoyed your fruit presentation as Sherry and I visited Jamaica and most of central America last spring.
Keep well and happy.
