Unapologetic Gratitude

As we near the end of a trying time in our history, I wonder. Will we continue to live in a State of Gratitude for all the little things that this life has to offer. Or will we attempt to resume to the crazy, manic lifestyles we all had before the pandemic hit.  This past weekend I traveled out of the State of Florida to a place still very much under strict curfew and COVID related mandates.

Miami Full Moon Yoga + Meditation Gathering Contributes to Grant Fund

What a beautiful evening! Every so often we are graced with the presence of special individuals.
