JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 267 :: renew

23 Sep

Haircut Day.

Today was haircut day! And it feels like the kindest (intentional) act of the week for me. So fresh. So new. So good!

Why does a new haircut feel so good? And kind? I’m not entirely sure, but I know this: it’s all in the heart.

Catching kindness?

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 264 mother nature

20 Sep

Kindness.

I stopped and paused tonight to view this sunset.
Mother Nature shared this beauty…what an act of kindness!

So beautiful. So kind. Especially in light of all the weather patterns around the world. Sometimes I wonder if we need the contrast in order to appreciate the beauty and the sun that sets every night.

More tomorrow….

Lovemore,
Jamie

 JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 188 :: rich beauty 

30 Jul

Day 2 on the train.

I love the train. I think it’s something that just gets in your blood. Tonight I had dinner with two older Australian gentlemen who are traveling the country visiting air shows. Last night I ran into the woman I boarded with originally in Chicago. She too had a layover  (trainover?) in Minneapolis and we found ourselves boarding the train again at the same time three days later.are

There’s so much that I love about the train. The people. The sights. The feeling of being slowly whisked across the country.  

And I really love the dining car.

The food is not a gourmet spread but it’s really not too bad. Better than any airplane food I have ever had. And, to be honest, probably better than my own culinary creations at home.

It’s been almost 24 hours on the train for me. My hair is getting a little bit greasy. My legs a bit tired. But the trip is still an adventure. The sights are still making me sigh with awe and disbelief. The beauty is breathtaking.  

It’s been a small gift of kindness to myself, to take the long way home. The slow train.

But so worth the richness and wonderment.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 187 :: farmers market beauty

29 Jul

The best kind of kindness.

I find shopping at the Farmers Market so very kind. It’s outside, the sun is usually shining, it’s summer. It is swathed in beauty. Even in another state, another city, another market… the beauty of nature abounds.

It is the kindest way I know to shop. Add to that good friends, a super sweet cinnamon roll… not to mention a flower that is bigger than your head…

And it makes for a pretty special day.

Full of food and fun.

Tonight I board the train again headed toward the coast. But I will not forget the KINDNESS that comes from visiting lifelong friends, eating really good food, listening to inspiring music and picking up right where we left off twenty years ago in college.

Friendship is indeed the language of kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 138 kindness is…

21 May

Blooming. 

And this:

And also this: watching beauty bloom right in front of your eyes.

The older I am the more appreciation I have for the flowers and the blooming that occurs right before my very eyes. It’s like magic. Or Mother Nature’s kindness pouring out as I walk on by. The tricky part is noticing.

Blooming kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 82 :: resting

26 Mar

Kindness.

I can’t remember the last time I spent two straight days in bed. It’s been awhile.

There is so much kindness in resting. Resting kindness. In our go-go-go hurry up I want it yesterday world, there is something quite beautiful about being so tired and sick you can’t get out of bed.

It’s all in the resting.
The quiet kindness of rejuvenation.

And the good news is that I feel better. The results will be tomorrow, in the form of a question. Can I be so kind that I don’t push myself back to the sick zone?

But now, I rest.
Sweet dreams.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

GOOD.

It’s 4-letter word Friday! Diane, the queen of this game, the one who introduced me to it, sent me a birthday wish yesterday. It said:

“May your birthday and all your days be filled with love, help, hope, kind acts, pals, fair play and good time(s)”

I have to hand it to her.. she is GOOD at this game!  So tonight, I am celebrating the 4-letter word GOOD.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 287 :: the beauty of chicago

20 Oct

Day 287: Pretty.

I’ve come to a decision.
It’s a big one. And it’s this: We need more beauty in our world right now.

I was reminded at dinner tonight, when in the midst of all the thoughts and goings on in my mind, I noticed the flowers sitting on the table top right in front of me.


There is so much beauty in our world.
If only we open our eyes to it.
Thanks for the reminder Chicago.

Namaste, Windy City. Namaste.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 251 :: living beauty

14 Sep

Day 251: So full.
I’m such a sucker for beauty. It makes me feel calm and alive, relaxed and energized. All at the same time.

And this is just one of the views I love from a place we now call home:

Calm. Alive.
Relaxed. Energized.

Maybe that’s the recipe that yoga is trying to teach me too?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
