HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I must apologize for having pics of my feet on here twice in a row but i love these shoes! Aren't they perfect for Halloween? I've actually had them for quite a while now but today is definitely the day to wear them :-)

Being Fully Awake


Note: cross-posted from my soloblog

Tonite I watched an interview of housewife-turned-Buddhist-nun Pema Chodron with some friends. Chodron spoke about many common Buddhist concepts, with her own unique spin on the issues of pain and suffering and the goal to be 'fully awake.'

For me, the most provocative quotation from the program was this one:
"We are all capable of becoming fundamentalists because we get addicted to other people's wrongness."

She spoke at length about how this addiction, or 'getting hooked' as she calls it, sets off a chain reaction of suffering. By removing ourselves from the addictive cycle we can have more peace and compassion.

I love that idea. I am certainly guilty of being addicted to other people's wrongness just as I am guilty of being addicted to my own rightness. I recognize that this is a very rigid way to live, but it is so human...sigh.

What I really want...to see the divine in each person I meet and not to feel anger and self-righteousness when someone believes differently than I do. So I will keep trying....

Girls Weekend in The Tetons!


We went up to Victor Idaho and stayed in a Residence Club cabin this weekend. It was amazing! And so fun! It dumped snow on us so we mostly stayed inside and read and watched movies and of course...took pictures of Emmy :-)







This was so funny. And no drinking was involved! You have the person shake their head back and forth really fast and then snap the picture. We were laughing so hard.

Chandra in the NY Times!

My cousin Chandra was in the NY Times!! So cool. Here is her pic that was in the paper and the link to the article. Read the article. She fights for a very important cause.

Fall in Heber

It's been a beautiful fall this year. Fall in Utah normally last about a week but it's spectacular. I'll add more pics soon but here is a pretty hillside. I also tried to take a picture a a gorgeous full moon, it was soooo huge but as you can see here my camera does not do it justice...at all. Oh well.

Babies Galor

So my family is having a baby boom. My beautiful cousin Laila is due in February. My sister Jayne is due in April and my soon to be sister-in-law Amanda is due in March. None of them are finding out what they are having. Jayne is still flat as a pancake, but here is pic of Laila.Isn't she cute!!

I'll add more images as the babies (and their momies) grow.
