Your Body Is Your Brand

Experience an exalted state of being at the beach with a yoga body

Walking on the beach and practicing my yoga this morning was like experiencing an exalted state of being. Vibrating in sync with the universe where everything is possible. Cooling in the blue Pacific with yoga all around.

Butterfly Brand

The body is the brand and mine is feeling and looking good for an old man. However, this girl looks better. Her ink job makes a nice thread to tie this blog together. Her body brand is butterflies, leaves and jailhouse tattoos.

The Body IS The Mind

Five years ago, I would have shot my own photographs of me practicing yoga. There are a few such shots of me scattered throughout this blog. However it would be mediocre and probably ridiculous to use pictures of my sixty-five year-old body. It is much more engaging to use these free photos of this young woman and her choice of tattoo art.

Maybe using pictures of girls with tattoos will attract viewers to The Body IS The Mind. The goal is to enhance engagement across print, digital, social, and experiential platforms, while maintaining a unique and authentic voice. Usually my unique and authentic voice is transgressive. So in this blog I am attempting to tone it down a little. Just be.

Build a Better Body

My Playa del Rey tidal zone work out includes lateral walking, jumping jacks, and burpees, all focusing on lower body appendage enlargement. Be all that you can be. Soon you will find love and then you will be prepared.

Much of my bliss involves creating privacy for myself on busy Playa del Rey. When I see other people practicing yoga and working out I give them their space. My little slice of beach is like my own private universe. I can walk back and forth to maintain the feeling of existential privacy.

The tattoo on her right thigh appears to be a leaf. What do you think? I call it blur brand ink.

We become like the people we hang out with and so now I have to learn this spinal arch asana

Now that I have her back bending photo in this asana on my website, I will have to include it in my personal daily yoga routine. That’s the way that I transform my practice and my life. You become who you hang out with most and I am hanging out with this girl today. X marks the spot. You will bind me lifting my legs like this later on today:

The universe is giving me an opportunity to reinvent the type of person that I want to be. Golden silence in the bliss of solitude. Right smack dab in the middle of the big city. Blogging my body bye bye.
