Sweating it out on the steeply inclined Temescal Canyon Trail in Topanga State Park, the view at the top is well worth the uphill climb.
In a recent Bikram class, the teacher asked us to close our eyes while we balanced in Tree Pose. Initial attempts proved challenging for me as I wavered from side to side like a tree pushed by the wind. I didn’t realise how much I relied on ‘sight’ to balance; resting the gaze on the horizon gives the eyes a good ‘massage.’
On this first day of 2013, readers, I wish you a Happy New Year! May you thrive in health, happiness, and an abundance of positive energy.

When you look from left to right, the eyes scan Los Angeles as it stretches from the downtown area, across Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, and Malibu. All photos taken today.
