“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” – Meister Eckhart

gratitude [ˈgrætɪˌtjuːd] n
a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation

In today's yoga class we set our intention for something we were thankful for. Dedicating our practice as an expression of gratitude, and a reminder of how fortunate we are {in so many ways}. I usually get my inspiration for class the night before, while I'm at work - leaving work - and getting ready for bed as I wind down from work. After quite-possibly the longest week I'd had all summer, after 7 hours in hell {aka Mildred's} following up a full day of catering, with blisters all over my feet from hot hot HOT molten-lava-hot sand, all I could think about was how EXCITED I was for my yoga class the next morning! After very little sleep, a ton of work, and then running around the restaurant - I wasn't thinking about my bed, or how nice it would be to rest my feet- I thought about how I couldn't wait to wake up in 5 hours and head to the beach to teach my Sunday morning class! It made me think about how thankful I am for such a great studio (aka the beach), for the amazing dedicated group of students that I have, and for the wonderful oasis we've created in class - knowing that no matter how little sleep or how much work, I always have these classes to look forward to on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. A rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit. When I decided on basing the class around the theme of gratitude, I started to think about all of the things that I was thankful for : the big things + the small things...because at the end of the day, they are all important and all deserve to be acknowledged.

I am grateful for my fathers health, that it is improving every day thanks to the help of my diligent mother, the dedicated doctors, and the love and prayers from friends, family and strangers.

I am grateful for the snail oil soap I bought in Ecuador, for $1.25, that will clear up every bimp, bump, and spot on your face.

I am grateful for the relationship that I have with my mother, which a year ago seemed somewhat broken and now has become stronger and happier and more wholesome than ever before. For her love and dedication to my dad's health, and even when he seems not to care, she still is regulating his diet, his supplements, his treatments, his doctor appointments...and writing thank you letters to his nurses.

I'm so very grateful for Julia Bandy, for our daily conversations - though they are only over the phone they fill me up with the right stuff. Years of friendship, many miles, broken hearts and some difficult life experiences have only brought us closer together.

I'm so thankful for FACEBOOK, and how it has allowed me to stay in touch with all of the amazing people I've met in my travels.

I'm grateful for wine, cause I'm sipping it right now and it's so damn delicious.

There is so much, so much, so much - big and small; friends, family, big earrings, my purple longboard, FOOD, healing - both spiritual and physical, all of it - I'm grateful for it all. I'm grateful for my burnt blistered feet...they are a reminder to never forget my shoes when walking down to the beach in the afternoon! I'm thankful for my fingertips which allow me to play guitar, and my legs which I allow me to be a nose-walking, trash talkin' son-of-a-bitch (as my dad would say). I'm grateful for these 4 months of mayhem, insanity, complete madness - working 24/i7....which allows me to live the life I lead, and play for 8 months out of the year. What are YOU thankful for? Acknowledge it, say it out loud, and express your gratitude!

I end class today, as everyone lay in Savasana, with this affirmation. Some of it was pulled from quotes online, some from random sites, and some was just from me...

I am forever grateful for the miraculous life energy in my body.
I am grateful for all the good in my life.
I am grateful for all the teachers in my life.
I am grateful for being able to hear my intuition.
I am grateful for every experience in my life.
I am grateful for every moment that I spend in silence.
I am grateful for having an open mind with which to receive new ideas.
I am grateful for my inner longing to connect with my soul.
I am grateful for my limitless inner resources.
I am grateful for my wonderful life.
I am grateful for the ability to turn inward and find peace.
I am grateful for the expanding journey that unfolds before me.
As I breathe in, I am grateful for the love I am receiving at this moment.
I am grateful for the power I have over my future.
I am grateful for the sound of the waves and the ebb + flow of the ocean, for the warmth of the sun and the beautiful breeze.
I am grateful to all who have helped me move closer to my dreams.
I am grateful to everyone who has brought positive energy into my life.
I am thankful for every spark of insight that inspires me.
As I inhale and exhale, I am so grateful to be alive and well.

WIKIPEDIA SAYS: {by the way, this is great, you should read it...}

Gratitude and Well-Being

A large body of recent work has suggested that people who are more grateful have higher levels of well-being. Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and social relationships[22][25][26] Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance.[27] Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life, being more likely to seek support from other people, reinterpreted and grow from the experience, and spend more time planning how to deal with the problem.[28] Grateful people also have less negative coping strategies, being less likely to try to avoid the problem, deny there is a problem, blame themselves, or cope through substance use.[28] Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they think less negative and more positive thoughts just before going to sleep[29].

Gratitude has been said to have one of the strongest links with mental health of any character trait. Numerous studies suggest that grateful people are more likely to have higher levels of happiness and lower levels of stress and depression.[30][31] In one study concerning gratitude, participants were randomly assigned to one of six therapeutic intervention conditions designed to improve the participant’s overall quality of life (Seligman et. all., 2005).[32] Out of these conditions, it was found that the biggest short-term effects came from a “gratitude visit” where participants wrote and delivered a letter of gratitude to someone in their life. This condition showed a rise in happiness scores by 10 percent and a significant fall in depression scores, results which lasted up to one month after the visit. Out of the six conditions, the longest lasting effects were caused by the act of writing “gratitude journals” where participants were asked to write down three things they were grateful for every day. These participants’ happiness scores also increased and continued to increase each time they were tested periodically after the experiment. In fact, the greatest benefits were usually found to occur around six months after treatment began. This exercise was so successful that although participants were only asked to continue the journal for a week, many participants continued to keep the journal long after the study was over. Similar results have been found from studies conducted by Emmons and McCullough (2003)[33] and Lyubomirsky et. all. (2005)[31]

Whilst many emotions and personality traits are important to well-being, there is evidence that gratitude may be uniquely important. First, a longitudinal study showed that people who were more grateful coped better with a life transition. Specifically, people who were more grateful before the transition were less stressed, less depressed, and more satisfied with their relationships three months later.[34] Second, two recent studies have suggested that gratitude may have a unique relationship with well-being, and can explain aspects of well-being that other personality traits cannot. Both studies showed that gratitude was able to explain more well-being than the Big Five and 30 of the most commonly studied personality traits

The Best Day of the Summer.

Yesterday was the best day that I'd had all summer. Wednesday night I got finished a little bit early at work, and instead of heading out, I came home and hung with the family. Relaxed and went to bed early. When my alarm went off at 5am, I was definitely tired, but I wasn't dragging too bad. I put the finishing touches on my "Inside Out Sushi Salad" that I'd made for catering that day, had a cup of tea, packed up my car and headed to Ocean City. The morning was SO perfect; the sun was shining, but not too bright and not too hot, the breeze was blowing, not too hard and just enough to cool you down, and the ocean was a steady ebb and flow of tranquility. I taught without my notes: something that I always had done in the past, though recently I've been reverting to my drawn up "lesson plans" more and more. Well - the flow was great! I just went with my gut and how my body was feeling. After class I delivered all of my salads, my first stop being @ my favorite Yoga Instructor and one of my favorite people in the whole WORLDS house - miss MICHELLE. I sing her praises often enough, so I'll spare you - but stepping into her house was a great follow up to my great yoga class. Despite having too small children that she {literally} seems to be juggling all day long, she still takes the time to be a good friend. Her, her handsome hubby and her adorable children make such a great, wholesome unit - something I look forward to having myself one day. Anywho, Michelle gifted me with some JIVAMUTKI China Gel {which I've been OBSESSING over for well over a month now} and a GORGEOUS deep purple JADE mat. For you non-yogi's...these mats are the BEST, the creme de la creme, the head honchos. As Michelle said "Oh Cailin, once you use a JADE mat you will never be able to go back!".

JADE Yoga Mats:
Jade mats are made with natural rubber and contain no PVC or other synthetic rubbers. Natural rubber is tapped, like maple syrup, from a rubber tree, a sustainable, renewable resource. We use natural rubber because it grips better and has more cushion than any of the synthetic rubbers on the market (PVC, PER, TPE, EVA). It is also better for the earth as it is made sustainably. In addition to natural rubber, our mats contain both natural and man-made components. The precise components of our mats are proprietary (the last thing we want is someone knocking off our mats overseas); Jade mats contain no PVCs, heavy metals or ozone depleting substances. All components are approved by FDA for use in rubber in continuous content with food. Through its partnership with Trees for the Future, JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold.

Finished delivering salads, hung with JaimeK + JamieD for a hot second, and then was on my way back home to scoop up Mom and Dad. Yesterday was our big doctors appointment: a one hour Avastin infusion and a meeting with Dr. Lehrman. Lehrman looked at the MRI and informed us that the Avastin seems to be working, and that the tumor has begun to shrink!! BAH! AMAZING! So hopefully this route will continue to work and maybe one day it will just disappear! Thank you so so so much everyone for all of your prayers and positive vibrations - they are felt, and keep them coming...we need to kick this things ass. While my parents were getting this good news I was bopping around running errands. I did a ton of shopping @ Trader Joe's for this weekends upcoming catering gigs, and then stopped at Starbucks for an Iced Latte. first bit of caffeine all day and I was bouncing off the walls. Stopped into Anthropologie and realized now why I don't like having a day off -- I spent a ludicrous amount of money buying some really beautiful Anthropologie goodies...and though I would usually feel bad about a purchase this expensive, I didn't feel bad at all. I actually felt good. I've been working super hard, and it was nice to treat myself. {Did I fail to mention that I also spent a bit more money at another shop down the way.....oops.} Picked up the parents, headed home and prepped for dinner: Little Paul, his lady Elizabeth, and drumroll please ---- SHAWNIE! His first day back since several months abroad in Australia, a week in California and then a roadtrip from Florida to here. We had a great dinner, some great conversations and certainly a lot of laughs. I retired to bed somewhat early and cracked open my new book "Wanderlust and Lipstick ... For Women Traveling to INDIA". It is filled with priceless information, funny stories and overall is a wealth of information concerning the many highlights of India! Counting down the days....Namaste!

Plums Please!

I have no control! I've eaten 3 plums already...and I'm contemplating my 4th! They are just so purple and delicious, I cannot get enough. Sweet + Tart, Crisp + taste buds have been dancing all afternoon. There are a varieties of plums {see below}, though the one I've been snacking on all day is the Damask Plum. The skin is a deep purple and very tart, the flesh is a yellowish sweet and sweet + juicy.

When I was in Santori's today buying produce for this weeks Catering adventures, I picked up a bag of plums...something that I usually just pass by. I am usually disappointed by most plums- too mushy, too sweet. But my gut-foodie-instincts were telling me to grab a bag. I couldn't wait, I opened the bag in the car and bit into one of these heavenly fruit...and I haven't looked back since. I'm getting ready for work now, debating over whether to take one or two plums to work with me....

A Bit About Plums...

There are few fruits that come in such a panorama of colors as the juicy sweet tasting plum. The plum season extends from May through October with the Japanese varieties first on the market from May and peaking in August followed by the European varieties in the fall.

Plums belong to the Prunus genus of plants and are relatives of the peach, nectarine and almond. They are all considered "drupes," fruits that have a hard stone pit surrounding their seeds. When plums are dried, they are known as prunes.

One of the unique things about plums is that there are so many varieties available. Not only do over 2,000 varieties of plums exist, but over 100 are available in the United States alone. So, if you are looking for a juicy, sweet tasting fruit that comes in a panorama of colors, plums are for you.

Plums are classified into six general categories-Japanese, American, Damson, Ornamental, Wild and European/Garden-whose size, shape and colors vary. Although usually round, plums can also be oval or heart-shaped. The skins of plums can be red, purple, blue-black, red, green, yellow or amber, while their flesh comes in hues such as yellow, green and pink and orange-a virtual rainbow.

Plums are rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, dietary fiber, VitaminB2 and Potassium.

Salt Water Healing.

The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea. ~Isak Dinesen

Take a deep breath...exhale. Again - inhale....exhale. I have been working around the clock. Teaching yoga in the early mornings, going to a yoga class afterwards, personal catering {buying, cooking, and delivering}, waitressing, singing, and designing. BAH. I had the busiest week of my summer these past few days, yesterday being the busiest - start to finish. I was SO in the weeds, all day. I woke up in the morning, stressed. Anxiety in my chest. Totally overwhelmed with all that I had to do. I frantically went from one job to the next: cooking, emailing, designing, lining up jobs for later in the week, getting shifts covered for gigs, and then back to cooking. BAH. One point in time I just had a meltdown, tears and all. It was good to have a release, because after I cried I felt much better. A good cry really does the body well. The only other things that make me feel this great after a stressful day is a good sweat in one of Michelle's classes or a dip in the ocean....does the mind good. I am using this photo for one of the posters I'm designing and it's so beautiful that I wanted to share it with you. {I found this old Kodak photo at Capt.Scrap in Woodbien}. I scanned the internet for a good quote about the ocean and the tears, sweat, ocean quote is what I really connected with. SO for anyone having a stressful day, working through a hard time, or you're just beat - have a good cry, go sweat it out or dive into the salty ocean :) Namaste.

Another "Guinness Shandy" Please...

The past few years I had played music at the Trinity Pub in Atlantic City. Fellow friend and amazing bartender, Chris Paisley, turned me onto Guinness + Irish Cider. Though most places make this 50/50, I prefer 3 parts Guinness, 1 part Cider. The sweetness of the cider gives Guinness the most delightful flavor! {I've also been known to drink half and half: half Guinness, half Blue Moon, or black and tan...half Guinness, half lager. } Anyways, Paisley got me hooked on the Cider/Guinness combo, but unfortunately there aren't any bars around here that have Irish Cider...especially not on tap. So, the next best thing...SPRITE. Yet another combination that I was enlightened to thanks to the wonderful Chris Paisley! He calls them "Shandy's"...a pint of Guinness and only a shot of sprite. It gives it that little dash of sweet and takes the heavy edge off. Mmmm, smooth + delicious. Paisley said that in Ireland a SHANDY is a "poor mans beer": any cheap beer mixed with a carbonated lemonade. He also warned me to be specific and order a Guinness Shandy, because in the past he has ordered one and it was Coors Light with Sprite...ewwwww. So next time you are out at a bar and they have Guinness on tap, order yourself a delicious pint of Guinness Shandy!

Wikipedia says...
, or shandygaff, is beer flavoured with ginger beer or ginger ale. Carbonated lemonadesoda may also be used. The proportions of the two ingredients are adjusted to taste, normally half-and-half. Shandy that is sold canned or bottled is typically much weaker (about one part beer to ten parts soda).

Rainy Yin Yoga

"Wait...without Anxiety."

Waiting without's almost like an oxymoron. This is Yin Yoga's mantra. What is "Yin" Yoga you ask? Well, it's the opposite of Yang! Yin Yoga is holding yoga postures to stretch the connective tissues. The connective tissue is everywhere in the body...the dermis of the skin, it forms and interpenetrates every bone, every joint, every organ, tissue + cell. Yin/Yang is a Taoist concept: YIN being stable, unmoving, hidden aspects of things. YANG is the moving, changing, revealing aspects of things. Yin yoga postures gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints. It's important to maintain joint health - think about never hear of pro athletes retiring because of muscle problems - it's always because of bad ankles, bad knees...bad joints. Yin postures should be held longer and with the muscles relaxed. Your breath in yin yoga is guided by the postures - there is no set way to breath, you're encouraged to just trust yourself and your breath.

YIN YOGA by Paul Grilley...a great source!

I was first introduced to Yin Yoga by an amazing Canadian Yogini, Laura Warf, who I had the pleasure of studying under over a long weekend at a yoga conference 2 years ago. It's slowly beginning to pop up here and there, but it still hasn't really caught on {especially to our Southern Jersey region...}. It's important to have a Yin yoga practice to compliment your Yang {vinyasa} practice. Here was today's class:

  • Begin with Chris Del Moro's 7 circles {to lubricate + wake up the joints}.
  • Several rounds of standing breath.
  • Uttanasana.
  • Leg Raises: lie on back, place hands under the butt, bend knees, draw to chest. straighten legs towards the sky. lift chin to chest, lower feet towards ground - hold, breathe, release. repeat 4 times.
  • Forward Bend: hold 3-5min *use strap for assistance
  • Tripod: left leg long, right knee bent, foot to inside of left thigh. left hand one foot behind left hip. inhale right arm up to sky, press into feet, lift hips. slight backbend. hold for two breaths. release. repeat. repeat on opposite side.
  • Wide Legged Forward Bend: place block in between legs, rest head. hold 3-5min
  • Camel: hold1minute
  • Seal: on belly, legs wide, updog w/ thighs on ground. hold 1 minute, lower, repeat.
  • Childs Pose: all variations; walk out to R, L, back to center. knees wide, cradle the ribs between the thighs. rock side to side
*Transition: Downdog. Wag tail, heels to earth.
  • Pigeon: hold 3-5minutes each side {place block under hip if needed}
  • Reclining Half Heroes: hold 1-3min each side
  • Folded Pose: Pull R knee into chest, L leg long. Raise head to knee. Hold 3 breaths, opp side, then both legs together.
* Hip circles: R knee to chest, circle for 1-3 minutes. opposite side.
  • Reclining Bound Angle: w/ blocks 3-5minutes each side
  • Spinal Twist: 1 minute or so each side
  • Supported Bridge: place block at base of spine
  • Savasana...try to feel the various sensations of chi, blood + fluids moving into or out of the parts of the body that were stressed during the previous postures.
YIN attitude of MIND: "WAIT without ANXIETY."

Soaking, dripping wet. And completely ZEN.

7 of us today for morning Yin Yoga...rainy yin yoga! We all agreed that the rain was amazing. Torrential downpour, but it almost lulled you into meditation as you were challenged, holding poses for several minutes at a time. After class my friend Martha and I jumped into the ocean in our clothes, because we were already soaking, dripping wet. It was amazing. Then I rinsed off, changed, and drove home listening to Bob Marley. His song "Natty Dreads" came on, which has the BEST beat and melody, and I couldn't help but smile. Drove all the way home, aware of the chi flowing through my body, soaking up Bob's beats, and completely stoked to have started my day with rainy yin yoga!

This is the affirmation that I started and ended class with...

The entire universe is one family.
The earth is our root.
The sky is our roof.
The four directions are the walls.
We are all children of eternity.
I am grateful for all the gifts of life.
I am grateful to all my ancestors, parents, teachers, society, nature and myself.
I forgive all the beings that may have offended me knowingly or unknowingly in the past.
I pray for the health, harmony and peace of all beings.
I love my family of diversity.
Everyone is evolving at his or her own rate. I love them with compassion as they are.
I feel the friendship of my family members.
I am surrounded by love, peace and abundance.
I feel the joy of living and flourish in the comfort of the harmonious universe.
I feel content.

Fishing Stories.

"Fishing Stories" - Sean Callahan

This is my Dad, Paul Callahan.
A Captain, A Commercial Fisherman for years.
I would recognize these hands anywhere.

When my Uncle Sean, a professional watercolor artist, was passing through town he brought along his camera and paints - as he always does. He took some photos of my dad in his foul weather gear with some of his old reels. Boom, about a week later here is this beautiful painting.

Men, Cover Your Ears...

...or should I say eyes!

Women. We are a powerful + amazing species. So complex + fascinating. Especially when it comes to that time of the month....periods. Tonight at work I made a comment about feeling like crap because, well, you know. More than half the girls turned around and agreed, they too were either there, getting there in a day or two, or just a day passed. How freaky is that? It is a scientific fact that women who live together begin to menstruate together. Well, we don't live together - but we all work at the same small restaurant, each of us on 6-7 nights/week. In the past month as work has picked up and we've all starting working more and being together, ALL of our cycles have begun to change by a day or two - to the point that we are in sync. That is some freaky shit. Fascinating, but freaky.

Apologies, this subject is definitely a bit random, but after all - I'm a mad rambler. I can't pick my ramblings, they just come to me....

Yesterday I bought two pairs of TOMS shoes @ 7th Street Surf Shop. Super stoked to add them into the lineup, and even more stoked because for every pair of TOMS shoes purchased - a pair is given to a child in need. Read on...

One for One

Why Shoes

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about. The TOMS One for One mission transforms our customers into benefactors, which allows us to grow a truly sustainable business rather than depending on fundraising for support.

Why shoes?

Many children in developing countries grow up barefoot. Whether at play, doing chores or going to school, these children are at risk:

•A leading cause of disease in developing countries is soil-transmitted diseases, which can penetrate the skin through bare feet. Wearing shoes can help prevent these diseases, and the long-term physical and cognitive harm they cause.

•Wearing shoes also prevents feet from getting cuts and sores. Not only are these injuries painful, they also are dangerous when wounds become infected.

•Many times children can't attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don't have shoes, they don't go to school. If they don't receive an education, they don't have the opportunity to realize their potential.

Yesterday I bought TWO pairs of super-sweet Toms: one traditional, and one sassy wedge:

I got the black wedges, and they make my legs and ass look smokin hot!
Got the "tibetan red" classic TOMS, and can't wait to wear them around India!
*TOMS can be purchased at any 7th Street Surf Shop location in Ocean City. They have gold glittery, red, canvas, graffiti, pumps...they have em all!

Where's the KOMBUCHA!?

Fermenting Kombucha.

Mmm I am so very in love with GT Dave's Kombucha. What is Kombucha you ask? It's raw and alive and delicious! A fermented tea that always hits the spot for me: it's refreshing with a strong taste, and as you are drinking in you instantly feel a bit more healthy.

Wikipedia says...
Kombucha is a fermented tea that is often drunk for medicinal purposes. There is limited scientific information supporting any health benefit and few studies are being conducted. Kombucha is available commercially and can be made at home by fermenting tea using a visible, solid mass of yeast and bacteria which forms the kombucha culture which is often referred to as the "mushroom" or the "mother".

Kombucha contains multiple species of yeast and bacteria, as well as the organic acids, active enzymes, amino acids, and polyphenols produced by those microbes.

For the home brewer, there is no way to know the quantities of each of the components unless a sample is sent to a laboratory. Finished kombucha may contain some of the following components, depending on the source and diversity of the culture:

Ethyl alcohol is drinking alcohol, but normally kombucha contains less than 0.5% alcohol. This classifies kombucha as a non-alcoholic beverage. [8]. Older, more acidic Kombucha is more alcoholic, and might contain 1.0 or 1.5% alcohol depending on more anaerobic brewing time and higher proportions of sugar and yeast.

Recently Whole Foods worked with their kombucha suppliers to coordinate a voluntary removal of all kombucha drinks they sell. The motivation was a concern around slightly elevated alcohol levels in kombucha drinks. Damnit! I have gone to every health food store around, and alas - no kombucha to be found, anywhere. I'm going to scour the internet later and see if I can find anyone selling their stash!

GT mixes his amazing Kombucha with a splash of real juice, creating a whole variety of flavors, but Grape is my favorite!

Noah Da Flame: NEW SONG!

Noah, Taylor, Me...Que Nivel, Dominical, Costa Rica. My 22nd Birthday!

My friend Noah from Costa Rica is an amazing Reggae artist. AMAZING. I've actually blogged about him before. Anyways, he released a new song recently "Give You My Love". It's available for download and it's a song that you are going to want to bob your head to and put on repeat.

Download FREE: Noah - Give You My Love here...

Listen to some of his songs here (my favorite is IF YOU DONT BELIEVE IN JAH):

Watching Pots.

While I was in California, my buddy Chris Del Moro said to me one night "Cailin, a watched pot never boils". Old-school wisdom, funny enough it WAS actually a pot of water that I was waiting for to come to a boil. Anyways, lately I feel like this is applying to my life. So damnit Cailin, stop watching the pot!

"A watched pot never boils
Something you are waiting for will not happen while you are concentrating on it.
