Focus! Focus.....

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus
~Alexander Graham Bell

Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary
~Ray Knight

Concentration is the secret of strength
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Aim at the sun and you may not reach it; but your arrow will fly far higher than if you had aimed at an object on a level with yourself
~F. Hawes

~All that we are is the result of what we have thought

Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow

Stay with sensitivity, even as you do things more challenging...


Wish I was here.....

Or riding my Cannondale road bike on this warm, smooth road,
with nearby hills to climb.....

Even though Calgary, should be called WinterCity, having only two seasons - Winter & construction or stampede season. I know how fortunate we are to live here. 

I am grateful:
  • to breathe fresh air, even if it's cool & crisp most of the time
  • to be close to the mountains for biking & to ski (when there's too much snow for biking)
  • for my friends
  • the amazing electronic bass music scene that has evolved over the years
  • for the strong communities & kulas I'm part of
  • for my career
  • to have the honor to share my love of yoga with others
  • to have ideas, followed by resourses & determination to make things happen  
With everything that's happening in the world I am reminded of how fortunate we are and how trivial daily complaints can comparison to the global picture.  I try to help as much as I can, still there's feelings that its not enough....then I'm reminded and filled with gratitude...

On of my many favorite photos from Sedona, AZ
I think I'll choose this photo to have printed on 16x24 Canvas

As I work in cold Calgay, all I can do is dream of warmer days
