Afro of Light

Here’s a song inspired by my friends Michaela and Berni… may the Afro of Light be with you! 😉 O Lord, I didn’t know you hide an Afro of LightUnderneath your stern bald head, white curls shine so brightI see your beating stick and tense to sit up straightBut bamboo bending in your wind shows… Continue reading Afro of Light

Compliment A Stranger

Try out this life-hack (or “practice”) to feel more alive, joyful, and connected: Go up to a stranger and give them a compliment, say something nice. And feel into your body.
