the principle of being joyous 樂 [lè] in the way I live my life has served me well ... the character 樂 has been on my desktop wallpaper for years ... much like for some, a vision board, a subconscious reminder as to how Iife should be.
樂 is one of those rare chinese characters that has dual pronunciation and definition, it can be pronounced [lè] to mean joyous or [yuè] to mean music.
much like my background in yoga, trained over many years in somachi and vinyasa styled practices, where our breath, mind and physical body are guided by the fluid, rhythmic flow of asanas, 氣 qi (prana) and music!”
