On Love

Love, in its true form, knows no suffering.
Love is peaceful, patient, gentle and kind.
Love is infinite and all-encompassing.
Love gives and receives simultaneously.
Love is strengthened through its sharing.
Love expects nothing in return.
Love is not interested in guilt, shame or blame.
Love tells no stories and holds no grievances.
Love cannot feel pain.
Love knows not what sin is.
Love sees no lack and no need to change.
Love feels no fear and makes no distinctions.
Love sees All as One and One as All.
Love is complete.
Love is.

Loneliness hits me in big Bed.

He boasts of luxury: a smirk of king, silky threads, full spreads, soft as a cat’s claws paws. Simpering of excess for my small self, I sink in.

How he’d bully my bare blanket back home, I think.

Lights glitter frantically down below, clamoring for attention, screeching like Cindy’s stepsisters, pick me, pick me! I am the brightest, yes, the brightest of them all!

I close the curtains.

Blackness cuts corners, crevices, and Loneliness hits me.

Loneliness, an old, familiar friend. I say friend, for he is too close to be merely acquaintance, too generous to be called enemy.

He hugs me tightly, too tight, I choke, sinking into harsh extravagance. I cry. My cheeks flush rubies and as the floods free… I am free also.

Loneliness, a messenger boy. Sent by the Universe.

To remind me: pleasure comes not with property, but passion ablaze. Luxury is lonely without love. And the greatest joy is humble, unassuming, earnest and simple.

Like the way a child laughs and laughs and laughs at nothing particularly funny. The way it becomes contagious. And how it hurts, and we can’t breathe anymore.

I laugh.

Loneliness leaves, Sleep seeps in.


Banana Brownie Bites | A Raw Dessert

Why did the banana go out with the prune?

Because he couldn’t find a date!

(But don’t you worry dearie, we’re saving ol’ buddy banana from this tragedy today. ;))

Both ice cream and brownies are yummilicious alone, but pair ‘em up and you’ve got a power couple in the house. And, oh baby, I am STARSTRUCK!

Plus matchmaking is just so fun, especially when you invite these sexy mamacitas in: pecans, pistachios, ginger, and chocolate of course…

I’m in a goofy mood today, but aren’t those just the best of days? When you let yourself be silly and free and stop worrying about what the world might think of you?

I’ve been blowing big, glittery bubbles made from dish soap, rolling ‘round grassy hills like an overexcited puppy, and squealing through pillow fights with my boyfriend. I walk around campus with leaves in my hair and a big, sappy grin plastered to my face, and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t want to live any other way!

So join me in this bliss, will you? Take a big ol’ bite of delicious life (with extra sprinkles on top) and lick the icing off your fingers!

Happy living!! 😀

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 full baking sheet):

Brownie Bliss:

  • 3 cups pecans
  • 2 cups dates
  • ¼ cup carob powder
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup shredded coconuts

Ginger Ice Cream:

  • 6 large bananas, frozen
  • 2 slices ginger (to taste)
  • few drops vanilla (optional)
  • glee!

**Note: I buy bananas overripe at my co-op because they’re always on sale. I peel, chop and freeze them immediately in little containers. Perfect to have ready for smoothies and ice cream!


For brownies: Grind up dates in food processor. Add pecans, pistachios, carob powder, maple syrup, shredded coconuts and mix till even.

Spread onto paper or foil-covered baking sheet. Use another sheet of paper to smooth overtop if desired. Refrigerate. Do a happy dance.

For ice cream: Blend frozen bananas in food processor till creamy. Add ginger and a few drops of vanilla if desired. Scoop generously onto brownies.

Indulge, darlings! Live freely. Giggle gleefully. Bless your beautiful hearts. <3

Melon Melody | A Raw Elixir

How do you like to greet the dawn? 😀

My morning routine prepares me for the day: meditation in the dark, an activating yoga flow, and a feast of liquid love potions as the sun stirs.

As a surprise treat to myself today, I indulged in this delicious elixir outside under the rosy rising rays. Simple, sweet, and oh-so-satisfying!

(Because it’s the simple things that bring us the greatest joy, isn’t it? The universe provides us with everything we need, all we have to do is say YES!)

INGREDIENTS (serves 2):

  • 1 cantaloupe
  • ½ seeded watermelon
  • 1” fresh ginger root
  • 3-4 leaves fresh basil
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • gogi berries (for garnish)
  • generous amounts of love!


Blend cantaloupe and watermelon till smooth.

For super silky sweetness, strain out pulp: pour juice into cheesecloth and hold above bowl, using fingers to squeeze all that delicious magic out!

Pour back into blender and mix with ginger, basil, mint, and lots of loving energy.

Serve in cantaloupe shells and garnish with a few floating gogi berries.

Mmm… tastes like a beautiful morning! 😀

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
May the thoughts, words and actions of my own life
Contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all
