I read about sleep the other day. An article about how much more profoundly sleep impacts our health and well-being than most of us probably realize. I want to share it with you because it's something I struggle with on a daily basis, and imagine many of us do as well.

This weekend, we unplugged.

We packed up our car with a brand new Kelty tent, a dozen eggs, three hiking poles, a bar of organic chocolate, and headed for the hills.

An hour of winding road later we were in the middle of a redwood forest.

Last night was the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. It was also the first luna roja, blood moon.

We knew it was about to happen, and had just put the finishing touches on a little graphic to celebrate this stunning celestial phenomenon, which we posted on our Mayan Calendar Facebook page. What we didn't expect was the speed with which the image would race around the world:

Author John Assaraf once said, "If you don't value your time, nobody else will."

December 21, 2012.  Winter Solstice.  End of the current cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar.  Storied date.  Inspiration for countless movies and documentaries.  Source of much fear, panic, concern, and ridicule but also hope, renewal, transition, and inspiration.

That's a lot of pressure on one ride around the sun.  I wonder if the other planets in our solar system are feeling a bit left out because they don't have their own December 21... but then, even if they did, there wouldn't be anyone around to be impressed by it.

Can you feel your sacred time burn inside you?

How would you feel if you found out your most precious asset is being stolen from you on a daily basis?
