Grateful for flight route maps. 1) There is an elegance and beauty in this highly ordered and very precise chaos. 2) They are a great inspiration for this personal side project I’m working on =) Whoda thunk it! / Grateful for crazy chewbacca hats. Man, they are warm! / Grateful for wall angels and Teddy’s creative osteopathic treatment sessions. Hopefully these exercises will help me train my lazy ass! =p

Grateful for catching flight no. 2 of 14 back to London. / Grateful for my Aunty Lorna and Uncle Callum for putting me up this weekend. / Grateful I got to spend more time with the family than if I’d just gone snowboarding the whole time. / Grateful for my late night chat in bed with Joy and watching my cousin grow up! Exciting time ahead =) / Grateful for the Top 50 biggest selling tracks of the 21st century showing on TV this morning. It’s like someone dug up my old iPod from a time capsule and plugged it into the TV. Flashbacks include: Kelly Rowland & Nelly with Dilemma. Eamon with Don’t want you back. Eminem with Stan and Lose Yourself. Wheatus with Teenage Dirtbag. Kings of Leon with Sex on FireShall I go on? Now you know you are getting old when your 17 year old cousin looks at you with a blank face and goes huhhh when you get excited about all of these tunes! / Grateful for my new Tucano work bag and being able to now walk and talk handsfree! I’ve always wanted one of these =p / Hong Kong. OUT.

Day 131: Self-Practice, My Magic Carpet, The Winter Chill and Arm & Leg Warmers…

Was feeling a bit guilty for not going to class today (even though I went yesterday) because I knew it was for poor excuses like “I’m really tired and my whole body is aching”; “I have another conference call at 9 and that means I’ll be rushing”; “It’s too cold and too wet outside!”; “I have groceries and frozen food I need to take home”… But it turns out going straight home was probably the best thing I could have done tonight. I will always, always advocate going to a big group class – because the energy in the room is so much stronger and the determination and skill so much more tangible when they bounce off each other and reverb within the 4 walls of that studio. HOWEVER, nothing quite beats the focus, dedication, discipline and serenity of a really good self-practice. / Today, I am grateful for my mat. The second my feet and palms plant themselves on this magic carpet, I know it will take me places where I find joy, where I find bliss, and where I find peace. / I am grateful for the winter chill. I tell you, when you’re working up a sweat doing inversions next to a radiator, having the backdoor open during the approaching winter is like free airconditioning. It’s great! =) / I’m grateful for my leg warmers for keeping the cold away. I especially love this photo because it is exactly like me – Seasonally Confused! / I’m grateful for my arm warmers. Not because they keep my arms warm, but because they give me extra grip when I’m trying to practice my pincha pose! I just wish I would stop laughing every time I hold it for longer than 5 seconds. It’s kinda hard to master a pose when every time you think you’ve got it, you get so excited you break the concentration… hmmm! The end.

I love that I am (apparently) the 80 billionth person to have lived on this planet… 79,933,496,802nd to be precise. / I love a bit of honey and a bit of butter on toast! / I love my skanket (skanket = scarf + blanket) and oversized scarves in general. Nothing like a barrel of wool to keep your neck warm and humming inside. =) And slowly… the winter clothes come out and start to pile on around me. 6 more weeks until Christmas. Jesus… already??

Day 76: Lemon Sorbet, The House of Marley, the look on someone’s face when they realize you haven’t forgotten their birthday, signing off designs & colleagues that work late to get the job done!

I love lemon sorbets – especially when you spoon them out of a coffee mug! / I love when you give someone a birthday present when they least of all expect it. And the even more humbling realization that you haven’t forgotten their birthday… / I love these earphones and everything about The House of Marley. 1Love, man. 1Love. / I am so glad we finally got this set of design concepts signed of. Moving on! / Thanks, G,  for staying the extra hour after work on a Friday night. Very much appreciated.
