I have a sweet, and rather new, routine to go to the oldest farmers market in San Francisco every other Saturday. Part of that routine is also getting lost driving there… enjoying the conversation with my friend Isma Mrkonjic. One of her many talents is her poetry. She shared with me her favorite poem, and I had to record it. You know – there is never the “right moment” or the “right location” to communicate something important. It “should be” a nice environment, it “should have” a beautiful back-ground, it “should have” peaceful background music… Sorry guys, and gals, and mom – when you have something important to say, the message will be delivered and heard. No matter surrounding. So voila, here comes a very beautiful poem. Watch the video below. Recorded from the parking lot of Urban Flow Yoga in my car… Actually, the setting is perfect. Time spent with my mom driving to school in the morning, or back from dance classes in the evening, used to be cherished peaceful conversation-time with her. Also, yesterday, I had a session with my own coach, which ended with a question: Who do you admire and why? The response came easily: my mother. She is warm, loving, generous, talented, has good taste, great chef, efficient, get things done!, no matter how much and what is on her plate: moves forward…”. So maybe there is a right moment after all. It may just not look like we imagined. Who do you admire, and why? Will you let them know? Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and… Thank you Mom – I love you!
