              Not sure how long we napped though?

Feeling rested and inspired!

Since June 5th our journey has  taken us to unexpected places throughout the country. Funds may be low, but our FUN is not!

Some highlights: Almond butter and toast are Anna’s new staple food and sketching everyday has become a priority. Along with toast, we joined Cantine’s Island Community  for a juggle, a painting, and a potluck in Saugerties, NY.  By the time we hit Philly, Ella Milkwren (Sarah Milkwoski Dalgren) and Zakariah Bigelow had joined the squad and we made our way south to Richmond, VA.

While we were in town I taught 3 yoga classes, 2 at rehabilitation centers,  and 1 at Brewer’s Cafe. House show after house show, we were hosted by The B+B, home of Maya Walters, a talented musician, and by The Bainbridge Collective, an eclectic artist collective that hosts touring musicians, and is run by a sweet woman named Bentley. She is a loving mother, a full-time nanny, and gives the rest of her seemingly endless energy to running her ship and caring for those she invites into her home. They both showed us serious love and hospitality and we have so much appreciation for their kindness. Mother Moses, Drones, PT Burnem, and Georgie Isaacs were some top notch performers and busking in Carytown was a blast! Our travels brought us to rivers where we could swim naked, to circus class where we learned acrobatics on silks, to the Foundation skatepark where graffiti covered the land, and to a contra dance  where faces smiled and bodies twirled with joy in Asheville, NC.

13475019_10209967702852013_6874042903108458753_oRaleigh, NC was where we said goodbye to our friends Sarah and Zak as they headed off on their own adventures. The City Soul Cafe community in Raleigh, NC  was a supportive and welcoming place to listen and share poetry.

Twelve hour bus rides further down south led us to gas station restrooms, bags of chips, neck pain, and solitude. We explored acro yoga on the sidewalk in Atlanta, GA and India House Hostel was a special safe haven for us once we reached New orleans, LA. A loving open hearted home in Austin, TX hosted a tea party pajama themed house show for us, which ended with a snuggle pile.
