Ok, I've started out all wrong.....here I am, babbling and ranting again.Where are my manners? Good morning all! Just finished my yoga practice and rather intense meditation session and sat down before my keyboard, unsure once again of what to write.But as you might have noticed from the first paragraph,I am very much affected and troubled.I heard a speech by Deepak Chopra not long ago.This sentence stuck with me and it only seemed right I share it with you.It is something all of us do.Absorbed by our problems and personal dramas we withdraw within instead of noticing the signs around us.God knows I've lost numerous opportunities in this way.What I intend to do from this day on, is not wallow in my self-pity, not fear when a chance literally slaps me in the face.I'll grab it and run like hell.And then go make the most of it.I commit to this.
On a lighter note, I told you a couple of days ago,I would start watching Game of Thrones.Many of my former students and colleagues urged me to watch it, and told me how great it was.I was rather cautious though.I had heard about it, but never given much value to the exalted praise it received.I have gotten to the third season by now and all I can say is I am stunned and hopelessly hooked.I love everything about it....the superb cast, the costumes and the very realistic sets.Every actor gives a stellar performance, so convincing that you would actually believe they are the character.The direction, production.....just excellent.All these combined make for an excellent representation of the imaginary world they are portraying.The story just draws you in and keeps you there.And I definitely have no intention of going anywhere until I have finished with all 5 seasons.Then ,I will have to wait patiently for January 2016 I guess.Season 6 is just around the corner!
So, that was it for today....I have breakfast to prepare for the little tornado in my life and myself.I need some coffee and get ready for the day.I wish you a very happy, productive,opportunity-laden day.Stay alert and aware.I will leave you with some beautiful music...with who else?Deepak Chopra, of course.
With love and light,
