Flights of Fancy

While some people have a natural joie de vivre bestowed upon them at birth, I believe that appreciation and enjoyment of life is something to be continually cultivated. Whether it is an environment that you create or something you engage actively in, mindfulness and gratitude will lend itself well to being a happier person. Appreciating something is a step toward love and all steps in that direction are good.

A friend pointed out to me that I am the only person she has met who travels with candles and lights and speakers. And followed that with a gentle raised eyebrow to the plant I had purchased on my trip to keep me company. (Its hard to pack those, so I like to buy them in every city I visit and leave them as gifts for my hosts).

Ambiance (scent, light, music and living things) is deeply important to me. It is a luxury. An extravagance. Something that accomplishes nothing tangible. And it encompasses a lot about how I have chosen to live. More specifically, that I endeavor, every single day to seek out and surround myself with beauty and take note of it~is something that I want to share with those who spend time with me.

Tell me what you love. Tell me what brings you joy and why.

This is a little snapshot I took on a recent get away. Its me and my cyclamen friend~I put her near the open window so she could feel like she was part of the garden outside. A little whimsical and childlike, but it made me happy.

I liked the paned windows, because I could hear the rain every night, through them-even though they didn’t insulate very well. I liked the wooden dresser that wasn’t from IKEA, because of the craftsmanship put into it-even if it squeaked. And I like how completely thick and strong my thighs and fanny looked in this picture; I’m endlessly grateful for their support in my athletic endeavors.

And those back dimples? I like them because I have no idea what or why they are. Even after research that mentioned something about ligaments and genetics and good circulation~they, to me, are a physical manifestation of what I believe in- decoration that requires no purpose.

Two twinkle twinkle little stars of compositional mystery, holding me together.

 

Jenny: “We don’t go to any concerts. We don’t believe in them. He’d say there’s no point to them…they’re just for fun. They don’t help you get on.”

David: “Which of course is what is so wonderful about them.”

“ADELLE, WHAT WILL THESE BI-MONTHLY NEWSLETTERS CONTAIN?”

Twice a month, on the 1st & 15th, I will be writing a short missive relevant to my practice, the world around us and a few of my own musings thrown in. I will also be including at least one picture, not published anywhere else, my Travel Schedule and Specials  for that month.

My specific availability can still be found on my “calendar” page.

With an ever shrinking avenue of advertising platforms, I’m choosing to stay in touch with those I value, in a more personalized and direct manner, rather than relying on third parties to convey my presence.

This is an excellent way to stay in touch if you live out of state and wish to know when I will be breezing through & in general to experience snippets of whimsical life and mind.

xoxo,

Well, as it turns out, my previous post was perhaps a little un-needed. Never having had a broken bone or stitch in my life, I was perhaps unaware of exactly how robust and resilient I am. Less than 72 hours after my surgery, both my physician and personal nurse (unexpectedly unneeded) were startled that I was so well. Barring a bit of bruising on my neck, there was nothing limiting or uncomfortable about my daily routine; they jokingly referred to me as Wolverine (for his regenerative powers).

So, having already snuck in some making out on the side and spent part of my today doing my Saturday morning volunteer work, I’ve decided to rejoin the world earlier than expected. I’m delighted to feel so well, but honestly am just happy to be able to actively participate in the things I enjoy, I do not do “nothing” well. Even vacations of too leisurely a slant, don’t suit me.

To celebrate my renewed appreciation of my health~allow me to propose a nod & toast to Your well being, too.

My darling protege’ has become a full fledged Goddess in her own right over the last four years & it is still hugely exciting for me to get to collaborate with her in peeling each others clothes off and touching someone else. Satisfying in the way that can only happen if my partner is as enthralled by the activity as I am. I have exactly that privilege, each time I share space and time with Christina Slater. If you would like to join us for a decadent four handed Full Body Massage this Month, we are offering the following special donation rate:
