Fountain of Abundance
flowers still abound as the calendar turns to September

I just could not help myself! As I wandered the myriad brick avenues between rows of shrubs and display gardens at a local nursery, I came face to face with this gigantic fountain of fushia petunias cascading in layers towards the ground. After standing a few moments in wonder at a virtual tree of petunias reaching 12 feet or more, I whipped out my phone and took some photos to remind myself that Nature is always full of surprises and abundance is there for the realizing.

Wandering through our home veggie garden searching for dinner, I was also amazed by the dying vines of cucumbers and melons still producing in wild abundance; their life force energy pouring their last bit of strength into their produce for our nourishment. Instead of pulling the plants, we picked the produce in gratitude and will wait to see what tomorrow brings.

Regardless of everything else happening in the world and in our individual lives, nature keeps unfolding her gifts. Even when her rhythms become turbulent, there is still beauty and solace in the abundance to be found in the smallest roadside flower or giant fountain of petunias!

May you find beauty and abundance in your life!
September Session begins Tuesday September 8
What's New for September?
A huge thank you to all of you who completed the MSY survey last week and offered great suggestions for new classes and video topics! They gave valuable insights that we will work on over the next weeks and months.

For September....
What stays the same
  • outdoor classes at Memorial Park in Middletown every Wednesday and Friday mornings at 8AM, weather permitting
  • in-person studio classes for 6 students per class (see schedule below)
  • videos on our YouTube channel (see offerings below)
  • Circle of Friends private classes available for your comfort (see details below)
  • studio and park classes priced by the class - no passes
  • videos purchased individually or with a video pass

What's New
  • NEW Studio Class - Saturday 8:30AM returns! Others possibly return later this month.
  • NEW Video Topics - Friday Surprise! returns plus a NEW special video series
  • Classes can be purchased ahead for the month rather than week-by-week (except park classes, due to finicky weather)

What goes into the decision to add a new class to the schedule? Ironically, it is based on how full the current classes are, necessitating another class for the overflow of students. So, if your favorite class was Tuesday moderate at 9:30AM, come to the Monday or Wednesday 9:30AM Moderate instead and let us know you really like Tuesday better!
