“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
This posts inspiration came from a situation last week in my life. I found myself re-watching a Harry Potter film, and trying to explain the magic of the series to Mr S. I thought it fitting to share a magical quote. Even if he didn’t like the series as much as I do, they will always be magical films for me. This quote reminds me to look upon the world as if it’s the first time I am seeing something with the awe and inspiration that we feel when we visit somewhere new, or experience something new. Never give up hope, always believe.
Decided I wanted a new look and overhauled the site last night. I also added links to some other sites I manage. What do you think? Like it? Love it? Hate it? Should I remove the other links? tell me your thoughts =)
I’m playing catch up on posts. Ram Navami was on April 19th. I planned originally to post a “Happy Ram Navami” blessings post that day, however at that time things were a bit out of hand around here. You see that was the same week the Boston Marathon bombings [a few miles from us] happened. The city shut down, the non government office I work in closed the business, and we had to work from home. My family and I are safe, unlike many of those who were at the marathon and injured or lost their lives. My heart goes out to those affected by such a tragic event.
Once stress and safety were no longer a concern, and the random April 19th National Grid power outages stopped, there were still a few niggling things on my plate. I’ve been caught up in some post vacation normal adult life responsibilities [read work, domestic goddess chores, playing tech support guru for family, and uploading vacation photos]. Anyway I am back from such a partially long unplanned posting vacation and….
I wanted to wish you all a belated Ram Navami, Jai Shree Ram. May Lord Ram shower his blessings on you on Ram Navami and always. Happy Belated Ram Navami.
It’s time to announce our winner from the Christmas giveaway . I want to thank everyone who is following me and for those who stopped by to participate in the first [of more to come] giveaway! I entered in all those who liked the post [in the various places I posted] and helped spread the word. Using a randomizer I input all the names, drumroll…
As the proud owner of the two disc DVD set from EkhartYoga , *Grin* I eagerly opened the box and saw inside that the disks come with a discount code. If you want to try out a paid very reasonable priced online yoga video membership, this code will save you 50% off your first month of membership [regular price is only 12.50 per month].
Perhaps you have been looking for the right motivation, or want to try online yoga classes. Why not take advantage of my code to see if you like it and want to stick with it? Which I’m sure you will 😉
I am offering the code in a raffle contest to share, as I already have a membership and I am unable to use the discount code. Let me just say its well worth it!! Not only is it the season for sharing, but I also want others to experience this beautiful opportunity. Rather than just give the code away, I thought why not make the code giveaway fun and turn it into a raffle. Don’t let this code to go to waste!!!
Here’s the rules to play.
To enter, reblog & share this post. Spread the word.

*Belated as I had to ensure giving away the code was okay to do with Ekhartyoga.
