An organically changing one. I like to be able to have a peaceful place to meditate, a nice yoga studio to practice and meditate. Big windows overlooking nature and walls lined with books.
Where is your favourite place to visit, virtual or real?
Italy, Portofino. But I’m happy to just hit the South Florida beaches to rest up from breaking news!

Spending more time at home cooking.
What is something you would love to be able to do in the future that you can’t do now?
Travel around the world more teaching yoga and meditation. In between, hitting museums.
Would you like to live forever?
No way. Period. Too exhausting!
Who has impacted your thoughts the most lately?
Rudi Tanzi. He just co-authored the Super Brain book with Deepak Chopra.

Stephen William Hawking, British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Pushing our minds to the end of the universe, back and inward to our deepest consciousness.
The book, the movie or the video game?
