Home-made mini quiche and chocolate (fruit & nut) cake from my yoga student. Can’t wait to get home and eat it!
I love my neighborhood, Shimokitazawa… it’s full of quirky little vintage stores and cafes. This shot was taken at Flamingo Vintage on my way to yoga class.
Today I received a surprise card from my mom, just to tell me how much she loves me! Made me feel like a little girl again… happy days :))
Pink & yellow daffodils on the sidewalk :)
…..hanging out with this little boy. He’s such a cutie, so happy all the time. I give his Mom a private lesson every Friday at her home and get to play with this little one :)
Bodhi is both a Pali and a Sanskrit word meaning awakened, formed from the root word budh (to awake, become aware, notice, know or understand). Buddha having attained enlightenment, while sitting under the Bodhi Tree “Those who have attained enlightenment lose all sense of fear and worry. They’re no longer bothered by mundane matters and see the incredible potential available in each moment. They understand the way life works and the design of the infinite field that orchestrates the flow of energy, information and the countless intricate processes unfolding in every second. Recognizing that they’re an inseparable part of spirit or God, enlightened beings are lighthearted and joyful.” – Deepak Chopra
I passed this Mikan (Mandarin Orange) tree on the way to work today. I always walk this route but have never noticed it before; today I just happened to look up. I’m glad I did!
This beautiful bakery is right near my work and apart from delicious cakes, they also have organic soups and veggie plates as well as fresh ginger tea. I’m a regular, what can I say! I usually go every Wednesday for a light snack, as I have a few hours to spare between work and teaching yoga that night.
The great thing about living in Tokyo is the abundance of beautiful shrines and temples. I pass this shrine every day on my way to work, and always feel a sense of peace as I walk by. It’s really so beautiful, especially when the sun shines on its bronze roof.
