I have the privilege and honor of caring for people’s homes and animals while they are away.  One of the questions people always ask me is: “Do you ever become jealous or envious when  caring for other people’s homes?Do you go into the comparison mode and wish you had more of this wealth and abundance.”Continue reading “Envy in Malibu”

California Dreams–Letting Go!


I remember my second visit to California, I was 18 years old and loving this place!  Near the end of my trip, I read some graffiti on a freeway overpass, “Tourists GO HOME”!  I remember feeling really bad when I read it, almost like I had been personally attacked.

Yoga–ya gotta begin to win


I’ve been meeting many people who really want to develop a yoga practice.  Their first couple of experiences, though, have been challenging.
