“Dan Abramson wants to reverse the stereotype that only hippies and soccer moms do yoga. Men, especially those who have been through the trauma of war, have a lot to gain from mindful practice, too. So, he took one of the most macho icons in our culture—G.I. Joe—and taught him some asana positions. Just one look at the classic green army men doing yoga inspired nearly 2,000 backers to pledge over $70,000 to the project on Kickstarter. Now these peaceful action figures are poised to inspire children, men, and military veterans to try yoga.”

I began the Worldly Circles project back in 2012 after my trip to Europe and can’t believe that I forgot about it! The one thing I’m struggling with is how to print them out — should I print them out individually? Maybe 3 or 4 in just a single row? Or 5 in 2 rows?
Thinking, thinking…for now, I’ll enjoy this on my blog.

Vanilla Cupcake Goldfish by Pepperidge Farm: Cupcake Week Edition
Okay, I kinda cheated here. Beach time was way more important than finding a cupcake shop (shocker, I know…). Everyone knows Goldfish are one of the best beach snacks so I figured this would suffice. Not to worry though—not a hint of cheese in these guys; just a sweet vanilla cracker, kind of like dunkaroos, minus the frosting texture, of course.
