Cool News!

I won the 2015 PnPAuthors Contest for poetry! My winning poem, “Lovers Like Us”, ended up in an anthology with the other participants, but I got the first page. How awesome is that? 😉

Poets & Writers in Action is comprised of both poetry and short stories. A few other writers that made it into the anthology were Deepak Menon, Robin White, Terry Gilbert, Raven Wilkie, Vinita Singh, and several more.

Here is the book, released just yesterday, with my poem! If you check out the ‘preview’ option on the site, you can read the poem if you scroll through the first few pages! 🙂

The HeilÜben-exercises for everyone!

When we've lost closeness to ourselves so far that we can no longer adequately explain or act after our physical or mental state and/or our environment, when there is a dissonance between who we are and who we want to be - by detecting and eliminating harmful stress and tension HeilÜben is a way to pull ourselves up by your own bootstraps – also in prevention through a healthy posture, harmonic movement and relaxation in training and everyday life.
