Spring flowers….

Spring is truly here again as my tulips and daffodils are telling me.  Easter is quickly to be upon us and I hope you all enjoy the long weekend.  With regards to Easter and the next little while there are several special closures and unexpected open days coming.  Look to your far right column to see the particulars.  Keep an eye on the Modalities facebook pagefor current information about when the office is open, what opportunities and events are upcoming, interesting tidbits and availability by the week.

In the middle column you will find upcoming events around town and another yoga workshop by Kathryn Kusyszyn.  The date of the nextaromatherapy direct order is tucked in there too.

Around the office I have begun stocking a small selection of products that may be useful beyond the aromatherapy products I make myself.

Below you will find some thoughts about my new bike….

In Health,

Summer Sneak Peek
The office will be closed the first week of August but that should be the only extraordinary closure.  I am planning some work on the interior and exterior of the house, so things may look shabbier before they get better but please have patience and it will get there.

New Bike

Recently I have been trying to makes some changes in life, one of them adding some needed cardiovascular activity.  I am blessed with a job that keeps me moving and strong, but never moving that fast.  My shiny, new-to-me, red bike with its sharp black basket, is aiming to fix that.

I got the bike for practical reasons – physical, environmental and economic – but what I didn’t fully anticipate was the sheer giddy joy it would bring.  My two predominant thoughts when I first was test riding bikes were: “okay, I’m really far off the ground” and “OOO, right, I can go FAST!”.  The latter is the one that has stuck!

My new wheels have pushed me a bit into a silly, playful mood I don’t often embrace and I have to say I have been enjoying it.  Taking the bike out has sometimes been hard work and other time a bit uncomfortable, but when I begin lamenting the panting breathes and rapid heart rate I have been able to stop and remember that giddy feeling.  I remember that I can go FAST – once I haul myself up the hill – and a big grins is plastered on my face.  The aches fade a bit, and I get to the top of the hill, and I go fast!

As we move through spring and into summer I hope that there is something in each of your lives that makes you want to grin a silly grin – and maybe even go FAST!
