Thank you for coming on by! Lot’s of changes in the magical world of the Veg888 blog! Lot’s of updates so I will get started and TRY and make this SHORT & SWEET! But if anything we will definitely get SWEET!
1) If you have seen – BOTANY OF DESIRE I am curious to know what you think. ?! This documentary explores an opposing side of the life of Tulips, Apples, Cannabis and the Potato! Originally a book, this film suggests these particular plants actually control us to continue their lives and growth, as well as further their abilities!.
I enjoyed the authors spin on things! It was nice to experience another human being exploring feelings on a deeper level than the human experience alone.
I am eager to read the book and see what other information is included in the book! These wonderful life forms on earth are so magical and we are around beauty all of the time. Even if we don’t PHYSICALLY SEE IT!
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE books about FOOD HISTORY. Early on Veg888 Blog used to cover a bit more history of food with recipes and logs of what was going on in the kitchen. I started adding all of the different parts of my life with you! It has become clear that I cannot just discuss food or yoga or any other ONE interest I have in any SINGLE SENSE within a single posting!
I hope you will come along for the ride!
2) The Art of Joyful Living by Swami Rama – This was a quick and FRUITFUL read. I am looking forward to read a few more books by this author.
Each month I buy magazines and look for interesting information about health, food, running, yoga, etc. Over the past few years I seek out a magazine called Yoga+ International. The magazine is a product of the Himalayan Institute in PA.
This last month there was an article written by Swami Rama about Inner Reflection.
The article was very kind and straight forward about battles we have as people. Why we behave like we do, how to get past obstacles, how to be gentle with ourselves, how to have an organized calm mind, and other VERY HELPFUL TOOLS to everyday life. The article is loosely based on the book – ”The Art of Joyful Living “
After reading this book, it has left me wanting to make some changes in my life and I am trying to utilize the tools the book discusses. If you read this book I would love to hear from you!
3) Running in the evening seems to be extremely healing for me. I enjoy running during the day, but I must say I am really LOVING the cool summer nights we have here in California. Although it is in the 80′s at the moment, tonight is sure to cool off to a NICE and BREEZY evening! I am still running and unfortunately I will only have 1 race for May and 1 for June.
July promises to be quite busy with races. I will also be hosting some functions on behalf of the Veg888 BLOG and also on behalf of the store. My taste tester and I have chosen about 4 races for the month of July and I am also hoping to conquer 10 miles. Yes still trying to conquer 10!
I am always looking for a great discussion to feature on THIS Blog! Discussions are so enlightening at times. On many different levels! Please comment or add to the information regarding anything on this BLOG!
Thanks for reading!
Love and Light!
