Richmond. A city that has certainly left an impression on me, and a city that I anticipate returning to. Not exactly top of mind when one imagines the great artistic hubs of the world, but that’s just another reason to love it. Read more »

Post image for Today’s Intention: Be Light On Your Feet

The earth, though strong and powerful, is still a beautifully delicate place…. and I believe that we should treat it as such. Today, let’s intend to be light on our feet. Read more »

"I intend to unfurrow my brow, unclench my jaw, and do every little thing I do with grace." -- as I read this line I find myself unfurrowing my brow, unclenching my jaw, which I don't even realize I'm probably doing all the time. This post is so well written and powerful -- thank you so much for this gentle reminder to be more mindful, less stompy =) xo www.threadandbones.com

I've been working on this for quite a while. In fact, it is a part of the reason I started ballet. I believe it has been working. :). http://etsy.com/shop/inabundle

Post image for Embrace The Dark

The all encompassing dark… after the September equinox it seems to approach from all sides, engulfing us in its black velvet embrace. We wake long before the sun has managed to hoist itself over the horizon, and depart our jobs and daily responsibilities at dusk, the day seemingly over all too soon. Read more »

Post image for Egalitarianism And Tofu At Twin Oaks Intentional Community

Just outside of Richmond, Virginia, down a long and winding road shaded by dense greenery exists a world entirely different than the one that you and I inhabit. The world of Twin Oaks. Read more »

Wow, what a surprise to have Twin Oaks pop up on my blogfeed! I lived there and many friends still do. I love how you captured the detail of the land and surroundings in your photographs. There is so much more to say about living in an intentional community like Twin Oaks, the connections between people, the freedom of the culture so you can relax into being who you are (or for many, figuring out who that is), the varied worklife, the wild parties and the tensions of working out the big decisions together. Twin Oaks represents what is possible for all of us. We can all learn a lot about how to live lighter on the earth, be freer and live a juicy life from Twin Oakers. I love that the Free People blog is delving into topics like these. Love from a rainy day in NZ. x

There's no feeling in the world like that of being in and around the ocean and this post inspires me to sustain that feeling no matter where I am in life. It also reminds me of one of my favorite quotes-- "I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came." - John F. Kennedy
