a simple creature by Allison Schultz I am here – present a gift. an unlettered map of the fallen starfragment tracing a story in the earth about a dream becoming true at the edge of transformation and wonder. a body of work soft animal fur and pink wired, electric desiring beyond my edges of percipient […]

3rd Sep 2011Posted in: Text 4

I recently (September 1, 2011) gave a talk at Ignite Boulder 16 on “Plus Less Than Three: The Algorithm of an Amazing Life.” It was inspired by a late June conversation under a tree in a thunderstorm with my friend Lark. This was my second Ignite talk, and I was excited to take the stage. […]

“Do not wait for life. Do not long for it. Be aware, always and at every moment, that the miracle is in the here and now.” – Marcel Proust The waves of summer’s happenings are going swimmingly here at HQ, where everyday is a 5 star day, the studio feels like a spa, and co-conspirator […]

This is what you shall do by Walt Whitman “This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and […]

Deep Peace of Summer Evenings

Summer turned on a few nights ago here in Boulder as the nights took the days warmth to bed. I love the warmy-spot of summer and how it makes my muscles feel so loose and so free. There’s an inherent ease with these warmer months. I am loving the evening walks, the evening sends, swinging […]

19th Jun 2011Posted in: Text 2

Last weekend was a turning point of epic proportions for me as I learned to really let go, trust and sink into the moment. In my mind it makes perfect sense, and I’ve witnessed it from working with so many horses over the years, but it was time for me to EMBODY that as a […]

Yesterday I awoke from the most amazingly chillaxed day in the history of Ali: I had 4 hours of yoga with Seane Corn and Kathryn Budig at the Hanuman Festival over on the BHS lawn next to the rushing creek on Friday, and found myself at dinner that night, draped in the patio chair like […]
