Awareness and compassion

I just witnessed something amazing. Outside my usual starbux, a homeless man frequents. I know this because I'm in this starbux A LOT. Its one of my writing haunts.
A woman walking her dog stopped and the dog greeted and played with the man as if with a long lost friend. This is happening while dozens of people walk by ignoring the homeless man, rendering him invisible.
What does it say when a dog is more compassionate than we are?

Morning exercise

Each school day I spend no less than 10 mins here watching my son get in some morning exercise. Its part of what we do.

Diet Change

For the next few months in preparation for several events, I have to lose some weight and tone. So I'm going on the shake and salad diet until the end of the year. Tomorrow is day one. It promises to be an adventure since the exercise load will only increase.

Cranky girl

My smallest, Z is cranky and out of sorts today. Slightly ill and in need of lots of cuddles. This is nap time after a very vocal(read extremely loud crying!) afternoon that wore her out.

Nesquik Mornings

Every school morning Rey and I stop at my favorite bagel store for deep conversations and observations about life. Here he is in a moment of deep introspection.

Implements of torture

On the right is weight vest. On the left are the assorted kettle bells from 10 lbs to 50 in this set. The heavier ones dwell elsewhere. Each day these are the tools of transformation.
