sharing the love

My favorite love poem. 

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
BY E. E. CUMMINGS

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)


My favorite love song.

viva la italia glam

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a beautiful benefit gala for La Scuola, an Italian International School in San Francisco. The event, La Dolce Vita, was hosted at the beautiful Julia Morgan Ballroom and featured a 1960s Italian theme. Any chance I get to dress up and bust out my inner glam Italia persona, I'm in! I wanted the big hair, cat eyes, bling and a classic gown.

snap magazine: one life issue

One of my favorite apps and design companies, Hipstamatic, connected with me and asked if I would contribute some simple tips on fitness, nutrition and life to back their mantra of "one life" in their January issue of Snap Magazine (their latest killer design project). How could I turn that down? I love sharing my personal beliefs as well as the mission of DIAKADI, the fitness, performance and life studio, that I have poured my heart into for the last eight years. 

Here I am. Published. I hope this inspires you.
