Back from the beach

If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.- Leo Tolstoy
from Ted’s Big Book of Wondrous Words and Plans
It’s negative thirteen degrees here in Saint Paul! And (an ultra-positive) seventy one in Troncones, Mexico.

I’m unwrapping my fingers from my mug of hot beverage just for a few moments to share two things: First, the above great words, which our yoga teacher Ted shared on day two or so of the terrific yoga and beach/sun/surf/food/friendship retreat from which I’ve just returned.

And second: I’ll be posting a story about the trip, with tons of pictures, soon.

Stay warm! You are loved.
