These two lands are a similar dichotomy such as the expressions:
Nature vs. nurture
Calm before the storm
Less is more
It is New Years week and I found myself at yet another crossroads.
I had every intention last week while in Lake Tahoe, of returning to Montreal, changing suitcases and jetting off to Beirut- but then a bomb went off! Literally and figuratively. The one that provoked me to rethink my position was the one that exploded in my head.

I realized that as much as I was looking forward to being with friends, exploring a new city and learning first hand about another culture- I really needed some inner calm and time to regroup for the coming year.
This Single Gal is flying solo this New Year's Eve, but not to a place of extravagant restaurants, night clubs and parties.
Instead, The Kripalu Yoga Retreat in The Berkshires called my name. I have traded in my stilettos for my new Nike foot wraps and a yoga mat, trendy continental food for vegetarian cuisine, coffee for herbal tea and Dom Perignon for green juice.
Some may think I’ve finally lost my mind, but the truth is I feel like I never understood my needs or myself better until now.
I am enrolled in their R and R program, as well as a workshop called "The Writing Warrior", deepening our writing by bravely facing yourself. I am looking forward to meeting Laraine Herring. I know I will be doing more self- introspection, while finally learning how to be grammatically correct! LOL
As my year of finding love comes closer to an end, I embrace the thought of spending the rest of 2013 as an individual amongst total strangers and bringing in the New Year with a new sense of balance.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you are all as in a good space as I find myself today.
