A journey on the path to la dolce vita. The sweet soulful life...

My wonderful friend back east messaged me today, she was listening to the late great Mama Cass singing the song Dream a Little Dream of Me; she thought of me since it is one of my favorite songs to sing. I played it and sang along, the melody takes you to a far off place where everything you visualize is possible.

That made me start thinking about our dreams; the dreams we have for our future, the visions we have as we sleep. After all this blog is about resolutions and making dreams a reality.  Have you ever had an idea in a dream, and woke up and made the midnight imagination a reality? I did that just recently with an idea I had in a dream. Dreams sometimes hold clues and messages, the key is to be able to retain the information and decipher the code. Listening and hearing is always important in life, whether asleep or awake.

I volunteer with a cat shelter called Kitt Crusaders. They save cats and do so much for the precious felines. I also am involved in Yoga and I have fallen in love with the practice. I wanted to do more for Kitt Crusaders than just volunteer once a week, but what could I do?  I had a dream I held a yoga class fundraiser in a local park and asked a friend of mine to teach it. Mind you, this was just a dream; but so inspiring that I woke up and immediately called Tracy Gittens, my fantastic friend and an amazing aerial yoga teacher in San Diego. I asked her if I were to be able to plan such an event, would she be willing to teach it. Of course she said yes.

I now have the ball rolling for my fundraiser for Kitt Crusaders discovered within the depths of my slumber. After all yogi's in Manhattan practice in Time Square and Bryant Park all the time, so the idea was not unusual or unattainable.

Fast forward a month, I am now in the midst of planning my event. I am waiting for the approval to hold my event at Griffith Park in June, the perfect place to mingle mind and body; with the salt of the earth below our feet and  sun and clouds hovering above our heads as we perform yoga poses for a good cause. It is amazing to me what we can accomplish when we put our minds to it, whether conscious or subconscious.Namaste'
