In Memoriam B.K.S. Iyengar

B.K.S. Iyengar 1918-2014

Guruji_nov2012Bellur Krishnamachar Sundaraj Iyengar has passed away at the age of 96.

Much could be said about his contribution to Yoga but I prefer to let you all comment with your remembrances.

I never had the chance to be in a class taught by him but had the opportunity to hear him speak on occasion and I can say that he was a man with a clear vision and inspired me to be the person I am today.

With Iyengar’s passing now there are precious few direct inheritors of T. Krishnamacharya’s lineage still teaching today.

Fortunately, there are literally thousands of yoga teachers who are trained enough to be the next generation tasked with carrying on the vital work of spreading the precious teachings that flow from this deep, rich wellspring.

Please, post your thoughts and what any of the three meant to you or someone you know below in the comments.

 

 

How To Catch Daily Life With a Pen

As things slowly get back to ‘normal’ the goblin returns to this blog too. I’ve found him willing to let me use whatever he writes on my blog and I shall take him up on that one. So here’s to new beginnings and musings by a live writer I know as Fleamailman or The Goblin.

***

to the goblin there was only one score that mattered, that of have I caught it with my pen then, in fact, it was just his way of fishing for thoughts, and as if to underline it, the late bistro played good music to a full house of lively chatting drinkers, while one lone figure sat in the corner typing away, looking up and then typing away again before finally posting something to forumland, so simply either the goblin was “there albeit mentally detached from his dailylife” or “here on forumland albeit still attached that dailylife of his”, something he called a shared life, though most people would call it a writer’s distraction then, or worse, simply daydreaming now

 

Love At First Sigh by Elodie Parkes

loveatfirstsighbannerbrasmall

Today I welcome back an author who has been here before, Elodie Parkes. She writes steamy stuff, so those that want to read the sizzling hot excerpts will have to click here to be zoomed to my adult blog, for all others sit back and enjoy the cleaned versions.

Thank you for inviting me to your blog with my new Hot Ink Press release,

smallLove

The first thing people ask me concerning this release is about the title. They say ‘is that a typo, shouldn’t it be Love at First Sight?’ No, it’s not a typo :-). This book is a duo of red-hot contemporary romance stories, Pina Colada and Handy Hubby Hire. The stories feature a love at first sight thread, but initially it’s huge physical attraction to each other when the couples meet. They sigh with lust and then the romance develops.

Sounds like two very nice reads, can you tell us more?
I can do better, here’s the blurb for Handy Hubby Hire.
Tired of the maintenance jobs mounting up in her house, Sara hires a handyman. She never dreams someone like Griffen Fox will show up to fix the faucets and back yard gate. Sparks fly, but will they lose their heart to each other?

And for Pina Colada
When Emma takes a long weekend vacation in a warm beach resort, she meets the very handsome Matt Tyler. They spend an idyllic few days together. Will this only be a holiday romance?

Now, that made me really curious. All those like me click here to be zoomed off to the Adult content blog to read the steaming hot excerpts.

I wanted my male characters in the two stories to be very different personalities and yet still similarly alpha enough to go for the girl they wanted sexually right away.
Matt Tyler in Pina Colada is fun and almost dares the heroine, Emma, to engage in lust driven sex. He also gives her romantically exactly what she needs on her holiday break in the sun. Picture the white sandy beaches, the pale green almost transparent ocean, frangipani perfumed, warm night air and a drop-dead gorgeous man, who wants you …bad.
Griffen Fox in Handy Hubby Hire is visually a bad boy, muscled with a swirling, black tattoo and an old truck. He’s capable and calm, but underneath the professional exterior simmers … sex … lust and red-hot desire for the heroine, Sara, as soon as he sees her.
He tells her what he’s going to do. He gives her what she’s longing for and then …something happens to him … something unexpected.

As the writer I like Matt very much, but Griffen, well, he’s an absolute darling.
smallLove I designed and produced the book cover using Handy Hubby Hire as the inspiration. It took some time tracing the stock photography of the truck and had other people in it, which I edited out and then I found my couple. I love this premise, with the sexy guy holding his lover up against him and nuzzling her neck. I hope it gives a feel for the originality of the stories, their heroes and heroines that could be you and the sexually charged atmosphere of hot summer encounters.

As Lucy mentioned to read an excerpt of each story you’ll have to click here now to be transported to Lucy’s Adult Corner.
