SO HYPE!!! End Game, Friday AND then The RUB, Saturday 🍿🥃💃🏾🥃🍿 I’m getting like NO SLEEP this weekend... #Repost @djayres with @get_repost
This Saturday at @bellhouseny we’re partying with @thewhooligan @dj.bianca @dj.brendan @djeleven @djayres @the_pop_lady and GiAN!!! Spring break @itstherub style 🥃🙌🏾🥃 CHEERS!!!!!!!
It was a hard morning. One of those mornings where I kept hitting snooze instead of getting up to work. One where all I could see when I looked around the house was clutter.
And then. Worst of all. One of those mornings where I couldn’t find something to wear.
You might laugh at that - it seems like a trivial thing.
But none of my warm weather stuff fits me. Which sent me into a spiral about my body shape and composition - why isn’t all the work I’m doing at the gym paying off right now, why don’t I have any self control, you might know that voice....
And I tried to go shopping last week and current styles don’t really work for my body - at least not in any of the stores I’m used to shopping in. (True story - I just want some not-high rise jeans #missionimpossible). So that sent me into a tailspin about not being cool any more, and am I going to have to start shopping in old lady shops now or maybe just look like a grumpy failure forever, and and and... And suddenly I’m yelling at my husband and kid and crying in the closet because it’s just too much. You know?
So. I put on my oils. I repeated an #affirmation (I easily flow with life’s experiences, everything is leading me to my higher calling). I put away my computer (nothing good is coming out of me OR going in to me in that state). I found my “above the line” playlist. I had a #danceparty. I took my kid to gymnastics and actually watched her, rather than working. And then for lunch I took us outside to a park. It’s not that warm but she’s been asking me for weeks for a picnic. #sunonmyface. Grass under my toes. Cuddles with this goof. And my breath came a little easier. And the thoughts were a little slower.
I didn’t fix my wardrobe issue. But I did get back into #alignment by looking after my mental space. Some days that’s all we can control, so that’s where I begin. Oh - and the oils that drew me in today were rosemary (oil of knowledge/transition), bergamot (oil of self acceptance) and cypress (oil of motion and flow) #nocoincidences topically at the top of my abdomen and aromatically (big breaths)
Tomorrow is a new day - but today can be too #hopefullywithcoolerweather#soicanwearmynothighrisejeans

Yukon Chicken Run 2019 a success! ... sort of. My annual spring over-nighter to Duke Meadows in southwest Yukon connected with the local population of Sharp-tailed Grouse, but sadly, there was no dance party. Late April is when male Sharp-tailed Grouse, a localize grassland breeder, gather at leks where they dance, drum, click, and call — while females attend to size up potential mates. It’s an amazing show. Duke Meadows is home to one of the Yukon’s largest traditional leks. Yet this year the grouse aren’t dancing. Maybe just an off morning, or other reasons. Never the less, it was a beautiful trip with nice views of grouse (some perching oddly as they do atop of snags), a choir of coyotes (turn up volume on video), migrating raptors, my first pasque flower of spring (blooming beside a lost friendship bracelet bead), and a pretty green spoon in the woods — which is now my new coffee spoon 😊. Dancing grouse or not, the trip is a birding tradition and one that I’ll be making again next year ... or next week.
Wishing a happy spring to my birding friends, many of whom are out on their own adventures in search of lekking grassland grouse, or hooting Sooty Grouse down on the coast. 🌞
I can't contain my excitement for this weekend! It has been months in the making to partner with the @jujuka.music team and bring the first ever JUJUKA showcase worldwide.
Dust off your dancing shoes Los Angeles and prepare for the techno onslaught from label boss JULIA GOVOR, @manhigh_recordings boss HENNING BAER, the uber-talented multimedia artist KAMRAN SADEGHI and myself.
