I just had a really good on-air conversation with Billy, a native elder in the Mi’kmaq community along with Florestine Bird, Spiritual Water Walker on the Yogaheart Radio Show.

I wonder what would happen if we re-aquainted ourselves with the simple joys, and just Stop.
and breathe. Couldn’t hurt to just … do less.
And love more.
