Fred Soll’s incense is great

I’ve been using Fred Soll’s incense since around 1994 when I was living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

Thankfully, they still sell awesome, high-quality incense online and allow me to smell the same familiar, comforting fragrances that I smelled back then. It’s like carrying around a place with you! I felt like that in Mississippi, burning Albuquerque Cedar while I was feeling alone in a strange place, far from home.


A good list of yoga mats

Man! Seems like there are a lot of good yoga mats out there. Decisions, decisions.

Since moving to Portland, Oregon, from Jackson, Mississippi, several weeks ago, I’ve started eyeing yoga opportunities around town. I’ve seen at least a couple yoga studios that do live yoga classes and I’ve joined two yoga Meetup groups. So, I need a mat! I had a great couple mats in my old life but I had to leave them behind after my bitter ex-wife chased me out of town. 😀

I was glad to see that so many mats are eco-friendly. They mostly seem high-quality also, durable. I guess it comes down to which ones feel the best to that particular person. So you just have to try some out and see which one you like the most. Since I am on a super-tight budget right now I will go for the cheapest good mat.
