I first saw this Aim So High .pdf  poem years ago in an United Technologies ad campaign.   I relate to its message of high standards--it is the only way I know.  It’s funny to me that for years, I’ve felt like a critic, a Zagat, a travel agent, and concierge with people often asking me for restaurant recommendations, vacation suggestions, the best yoga studios, the best massage therapist, where to buy yoga clothes, what song I played in yoga class, where do I get my dog groomed!  While I have no interest in becoming Daily Candy or Zagat, it is my pleasure as a service to my friends to share my raves.  These raves are my Swadhyaya (love saying that word) a niyama meaning self-study and in contemporary terms that means exposing yourself to all things that inspire and enlighten--movement, art, music, food, books and more.  May you be inspired from these raves and may you never be bored!--Debby
