Summer Season fashion piece … lace and prints

Love Governor Koike’s masks – so cute ! See a sample here:)

Then I found this video on Utube – so relaxing … so kind, so lovely. I actually practically meditate watching this – with deep yogic breath. Shift the mindset about face masks – it’s a complement to your summer fashion and sends out your message for care and love of others – no it need not be N95s which are in short supplies for the front-line health workers, but honestly – are we in contact with such severe, clear and menacing danger when we go out to just shop or talk to friends? No – right – so just find something that works. Masks enhances our breath capacity and trains us to breath better. Wearing this in this time of pandemic symbolizes … yoga in action.

Lucky to have Rumi, as a Neighbor … she’s down the street :)

The moment you accept what trouble you’ve been given, 

the door will open.

DIY herbs, avocado toast, chimichurri sauce &

First attempt making BATTERA SUSHI. I love battera sushi SO I even purchased and brought back these wooden molds from Japan … well, long time ago … but … never used them until now !

Interesting what you find in the deep corners of cupboard located too high for reach. Forgotten tools, misplaced intentions that laid to waste; now given fresh breath of life in first time use. Battera sushi? Ummm, not as good as the ones made by real sushi chefs – not even close – but … this will have to do for now.

Thank you Rumi for the chimichurri sauce recipe – so lush so green:)

Let that sink in …

A very special treat for the healthcare worker in your life? Or the grandma you come in contact with ? Your wife? Your sister?

So beautiful … anyone getting married in June? How is that done if the sheltering is still taking place ? In the meantime here’s an idea for treats to ponder on such things … or for mother’s day or for new moms … makers still make things and bring little bits of joy. Thank you to the creators, makers, artisans …
