The Things I Learned at YogaFest 2014

I was excited for YogaFest. I wouldn't stop talking about it all week. Especially after all the fun I'd had at last year's YogaFest. But then came the rain.

‘Tis the Season to Be…

So I've been meaning to post this for several days. I believe I am suffering from what can only be called "end of year burn out." I feel the creativity there, but it is so hard to muster up. When you write for a living, writing in your free time can be quite an overwhelming task.
