Hey all. I guess you are feeling a little of the anxiety, the fight, the defiance, the collective empathy and the shared fear of the current situation in the world. It doesn't help that we are all at home (most of us anyway - the real heroes are out there fighting for us each and every second: the nurses, paramedics, cashiers, grocery clerks, bus drivers, cleaners, police, EMS responders, cleaners, doctors....and so many more) feeling cut off from the world. But if there is any one thing I take some comfort in, its knowing that we are not completely alone in this. For the first time in my life I am feeling a sense of a shared "mission" that is calling us as a World Team to come together and fight a common enemy. It's not a super nuke nor a wonderful superpower that we can use to take down the bad guys. But it's a shared camaraderie and a feeling of forming a common alliance that always lifts my spirit when the day feels like its just a little darker than I last remembered.

Yang Sheng. 

Nope, it's not the name of a master meditator/martial artist/holy monk who lives in the woods. 

It's a concept; a philosophy of living; and when practiced on a daily basis, becomes part of the fabric of your daily routine. It isn't really a singular task that you do and check off at the end of the day. It's really more of the way you approach your tasks and the mindset (or your attitude) that you take when you go through the mundane, daily motions of living. And what powers the beating of the heart of the concept of Yang Sheng? The idea of nurturing and self care.  

OK. Maybe I'm making this sound a little too simple. Or so simple that it just becomes downright confusing (sorta like when Mr Miyagi tells Daniel in the Karate Kid to "wax on, wax off" in typical zen-like fashion, while teaching him karate - and poor Daniel wonders how the heck any of this stuff even relates to real life!)

This is where I come in and do my typical filibuster...

I know, I know. My bad. (I just wrist slapped myself so, THERE! We're even stevens....still friends??)

I know I keep saying that I'll be posting a little ditty about taking it easy and demonstrating the concept of "Yang Sheng" as a means of "keeping things balanced" in life and not letting life be all about too much action and no rest. Oh what a major hypo-critter I am as my summer has been all about the action-packed and uh...well, not so much about the "R an' R" aspect of life.

{Aside note: For all you acugeeks out there (YOU know who you are!!) who are curious, "Yang Sheng" is pretty much a way of life and living; where one "cultivates one's spirit" and "nourishes one's life" as a way to prevent disease (and all that nasty stuff that could kick your health out of kilter) and keep your body, mind and spirit healthy and, equally as important, responsive to all the things that life can throw at you.} 

So really, the point and purpose of this short little interim article is...
