I've spent my entire life living in Utah. As much as I love the tropics, and lush greenery, nothing beats our variance in scenery. I live in the North in the valley of the Wasatch Mountains, and grew up in the South with redsand covered by snow in the winter. Everyday I'm hit with a view on my commute or somewhere else that just makes me say thank you to my creator. This place is so gorgeous. If I ever leave here, I'll always miss the sunsets, the dry air, and the mountains. I always love to see someone else appreciating this beautiful state!

I live about an hour and a half from here. If anyone needs a guide, let me know. It's truly amazing.

I usually wake up a little before the sun (school), and I do quite love it. For some reason, it makes me feel more awake and at peace...it's a sense of goodness that I've fallen in love with. http://thoughtdweller.blogspot.com/

I read this whole peice aloud - you write so beautifully! I agree with what you believe to be a chief cause of human suffering, our removal from nature...so I am gonna absorb this advice and try to restore the balance. Thank you! :D

I’ll be honest with you – Big Sur has it all.  Read more »

Big Sur changed mine and my partners lives in such a beautiful way. The best tip I can give is that it's legal to stay the night at any turn out. Free camp site right over the beach you say?! https://instagram.com/p/tLT5enLZmp/?modal=true Thanks for the review on The Henry Miller Memorial Library, definitely top of my list next time we go back. xoxo Vanessa

Boulder is SUCH an amazing place. I moved there when I was 18 and just left (last week!) after 6 years of calling it home. There is something incredible about Colorado, particularly Boulder and the rockies. It will forever be my home and I can't wait to get back there. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures and words! It truly moved me and made me miss it sooo much. -Dre Redwinelipstick.wordpress.com

I'm sure you hate answering the same question all the time considering it's your art and your style...but dude, what do you do to all of your photos to make them look so utterly dreamy? Especially the first couple and your insta. Desaturate the yellow hues? They're just so fresh and bright! Please, if you don't mind sharing your process I would really love to learn. Thanks, jana

Post image for Book Club Meeting, Chapters 4-5: A Breathing Room & Inviting the Bell

It’s a space that calms you upon entering; an entire room dedicated to taking breaths in and out, connecting mind to body, and returning home to yourself. Read more »

These were 2 simple chapters but loaded with good advice! I love the idea of a breathing room but my 1-bedroom apartment sadly offers little space. Set on the idea though, I've cleared a corner, underneath a window to bring in natural light. I've laid down a soft blanket and surrounded the small space with a few things that help me relax, as Thich Nhat Hanh suggests. Some days it seems like we wake up, go to work, run errands, get home, and then just continue the business until bed. Truly I never feel like I have time to relax until the weekends. I think a "breathing corner" might remind me to sit and relax for a few minutes each day and get centered again.

As soon as I seen your first pic, I knew you had to have been through Utah. I hail from this beautiful state, and it is truly everything one could possibly imagine, and more! Doesn't matter how many times I see the beauty and majesticness of the scenery here, it takes my breath away every time!

Love this! Long distance can be difficult… I've done it a few times and haven't seemed to figure it out yet. You guys really respect what is keeping you apart and it looks like it helps with the distance. Hope you guys got to spend V Day together!

I love this! Its so easy to get caught up in the noise of the world in which we live, and forget to enjoy every passing minute in quiet appreciation and being. It looks like I'm going to have to read this book :) Thank you for your thoughtful comments. -Love thebeamingcrucible.com
Susan -Feb 10, 2015, 12:02PM
I'm reading the book too! I love how it is so compact, the chapters are so wonderfully short, leaving time to experiment and explore his wonderful suggestions for creating peace and inner harmony. I love his chapter on bells. I have a pair of Tibetan bells with a delicate chime, its sound radiates a feeling of serenity throughout the room. Thank you for recommending such a wonderful book!
