hammock swinging.


About this time last year, I was in sunny warm Oleiros, Portugal, practicing yoga and oh so loosened up from the luxurious heat. In the afternoons I'd escape to a secret nook in a eucalyptus forest to sweep fallen leaves off of a red cushioned swing, twirl in it and write. Or else I'd laze in the rainbow hammock and dodge the sun kaleidoscoping through the branches above.

I think of this now, because for some odd reason, visions of hammocks dance in my head. I might have dreamed of swinging last night. Though I distinctly remember something about a bubble bath in a sunlit room overflowing with vases of freshcut flowers. A jacuzzi tub jetting its hot streams against my back.

What are you dreaming of? 

p.s. If you know anybody Europe-side who might be interested in a yoga retreat, let them know about this Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Oleiros. It truly is a magical place.

bubble baths are definitely at the top of my list . . . though I take one pretty much every day (already did this morning!). Also: traveling to a tropical location, preferably an all-inclusive resort somewhere with an infinity pool and a gorgeous beach with my best girlfriends (including you). Ali and Diana just left my house for our Wednesday night poetry + dinner sessions and you are sorely missed. love you!

Hammocks make me nervous... I'm afraid I'll flip over and land on my face.

I'm dreaming of peace and sunlight and things like that. =) And beautiful piano music.
