3:40pm: OK, so itís official: Iím not into Winter! Itís
cute for awhile. The ďholidaysĒ; Chestnuts roasting on an open
fire; getting all bundled up and taking long walks; The beauty of a
fresh New England snow fall. Itís cute until mid January and then
you realize youíve got three more months of Winter. Not to
mention, the "holidays" are something that most Jews just "watch in
amazement"! I've always loved spending time with my non Jewish
girlfriends and their families, but at some point their families would
implode under the weight of Christmas expectations unfulfilled...
and then the real fun begins!! Yes at mid January, we're
still looking at February. March sounds a lot like Spring but
itís never anything like Spring, and it snows every April! Bottom
line: November to April is a six month freak show called Winter!
Last year I headed down to Florida on January 15th and it worked
beautifully. This year because of business reasons and the fact
that I enjoy the students I teach and enjoy the studio owners I work
for, I decided to stay up here and suck it up. Canít imagine Iíll
stay here next Winter. Not with all the wonderful, warm places in
the world to teach yoga. Iíve almost made it. One more trip
down to Florida and if I make it a long working vacation, I can make it
Baseball season is upon us and thatís a sure sign of Spring. Iím
still in shock (and awe!) over the Red Sox Nationís successful bid for
a World Championship last year; just AWESOME! Especially at the
expense of the Yankees. My Mets are promising great things
(nothing new!), and for the first time in years it seems that the
promise of potential might actually come to fruition. What does
that mean to me? A .500 winning percentage might be a nice place
to start! Ahh! Just to be competitive again! My boy Mike
Piazzaís final year of his contract. I want him to go out with
Iím teaching a ridiculous amount and waiting for word from from the
Bikram Yoga International HQ, pertaining to a very exciting project Iím
working on. Just need the Bossí OK, and Iím off and running.
Musically, Iím working on a bit of a new concept for the band as far as
our performance presentation is concerned. Iíve always been a big
technology kindaí guy. The trick has always been to mix
performance and technology in a way thatís seamless and
unobtrusive. It takes time and patience. For the first time
in years, I seem to have both.
