We are family

I was born, bred and educated in Tucson, Ariz. I left about two weeks after I graduated from college when I was 23. Most of my family members never leave Tucson. So it was a big deal for me to leave and move somewhere where I knew no one. But for the sake of my […]


Yoga pose: Extended Triangle Pose

I practice yoga regularly–about three times a week. Sometimes more. Utthita Trikonasana (Extended Triangle Pose) is a regular pose in my regular practice in both Hatha and Vinyasa classes.

Ah, the holidays are upon us. Tomorrow is the unofficial launch of the holiday season. I heard on the radio this morning that tonight is the busiest night for bars. I searched on Google to find more information about this. Many cities did stories on it. The one I decided to open came from Tucson, […]


Feeding your body after exercise

I really wanted to blog on Thursday night. Mainly because I had skipped blogging for days before. But I got home late and still had stuff to do around the house and work work to do as well. And by the time I was done I was exhausted. The past work week has been exhausting […]
