More hydrangea goodness from my yard.  There’s something about this time of year when my plants seem out of control, and everything is lush and full that makes me overlook the weeds and untended beds.  I love it. Speaking of things I love, I love brownies and I am on a quest for the perfect […]

I’ve written before about how I suffered from chronic pain in my right pelvis and psoas-area after the birth of my second child.  I was in physical therapy for about a year and a half, and as a result became interested in (obsessed?) with whole body alignment and the impact it plays in health and […]

Isn’t this little guy just the cutest?  I found him on a recent trek to my most favorite “happy” place in the city, Atlanta Botanical Garden.  The frog pond was full of little guys like him, just doing their thing.  I took way too many photos of them. Speaking of way too many, I have […]

I’m going to dissect a sacred cow today.  Don’t take offense if it’s something you love.  Remember, we’re all about exploration here. I won’t recommend Pilates to my clients, and if people tell me they’re taking it up, I quietly cringe a little inside. Here’s the practical side of my cringe.  Pilates is expensive.  Mat […]

April showers bring May flowers.  What do May flowers bring? The MAYpocalypse?  MAYhem?  End-of-School-a-palooza? Whatever term you use, you know what I mean. Spring sports are ending.  Dancers are recital-ing.  (In some cases night after night after night.)  School years are coming to a close and class parties, plays and other events come with the […]

Enjoy some “fruit art!”  My daughter’s class cut up various pieces of fruit and explored the shapes and textures they produce when painted.  That was fun but not nearly as fab as the real fish they painted and used for art … until it got too smelly! I am all over the board today, so […]

I was on Spring Break with the kids last week and we traveled to South Carolina to visit my mom.  While I was there, she wondered, would I be willing to clean out her shoe stash, as per the guidelines in Katy Bowman’s [amazon_link id=”1936661071″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief[/amazon_link].

Lord, have mercy!  We have been sick, sick, sick at my house.  There is a terrible stomach virus – norovirus? – raging in these parts and if you have escaped it, feel blessed.  This is on top of bouts of flu and vertigo we’ve had at our house the past few weeks.  Throw in a […]

Beware the Ides of March! (March 15th is to us humanities geeks what March 14th is to the math and science wonks.) (I took a whole lotta Latin in high school.) Now, for the reason we’re all here … My friend, S, who is an uh-may-zing cook and quite a foodie has just embarked on […]

I’ve never explained the situation in full detail, but I have made reference to a chronic pain situation that I have in my right pelvis/psoas/hip area. The MDs, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturist, and movement specialists that I saw were never able to fully “diagnose” me with a single cause for my pain.  No one can […]
