Happy Healthy Wholly

I’m happy to get back to everything. But that seemed short didn’t it? Time is the greatest teacher that nothing is absolute. One minute is no longer than another – supposedly. Your age, your mistakes, your plan, your story. It expands and contracts. It sometimes reverses itself. Endings become beginnings. Tragedy becomes comedy. Sometimes comedy becomes tragedy. It all changes. And not always in the linear way that we expect. May the days of your lives this year be filled with surprises that delight and may you have as much of this mysterious thing called time as you feel you need.

UnCabaret UpRising

UnCabaret Uprising! Has a lovely ring to it.

And even lovelier because the cause of the Un and the Up is that, on the occasion of her birthday, we are helping Jill Weiss raise money and awareness for UpRising Yoga – the very wonderful org of which she is the Executive Director.

Uprising Yoga is a non-profit org that brings yoga to at-risk youth and other communities in need.

Located in Downtown Los Angeles (yay downtown LA!!!!), UpRising Yoga travels to juvenile halls, juvenile detention facilities, residential group homes, community centers and schools. In juvenile halls UpRising works with children who have a history of foster care and / or commercial sexual exploitation.

I am a great believer in healing and wholing and using the pain that we have lived to evolve into higher states of consciousness.

I especially am a great believer in the healing power of laughter. And in the healing power of yoga. And in the healing power of using laughter to raise money for yoga!

So please join us and tell Suzanna at the door that you are here for the Jill party:)

Un Up and Away! Namast-hey!

Logan Heftel singing Beth’s Song (that’s moi!)

I have mixed feeling about Obama. Hope, betrayal, suspicion, respect, love, fear – all of it. Watching him maneuver through the Syrian situation brings them all up. I’m remembering voting for him. Of course I wanted to vote for a President I had simple enthusiasm for. That’s what we all want when we vote. The feeling of pulling that lever – ok punching a tiny piece of paper – and thinking Yes! But I voted for him nevertheless. And when he won I wrote an email to Logan Heftel, who was going to be on UnCabaret that Sunday. And in it I said: Isn’t it nice to breathe again.

And then at UnCabaret Logan sang this song he wrote, inspired by my email to him. And he called it Beth’s Song. And I have no mixed feelings about it. Love it! It gives me chills, and not just because it’s mine mine mine!

It’s coming up on a year later and I’m realizing that sometimes the feeling of relief lets you know that your mixed feelings were not as mixed as you thought they were.

Logan will be on UnCabaret this Sunday playing with our dear mutual friend Taylor Negron. Also on the show will be the all very wonderful… Rebecca Corry, Julie Goldman, David Arquette, Andrew Goldenhersh, Suzanne Whang!
