24 hours left on a cover story. No, I am not procrastinating. At least not on purpose.

Here’s a short story I wrote for Variety; I actually talked to Kula Yoga Project owner Schuyler Grant (one of the organizers), and I was amazed at how simple she made putting up a festival seem. For some reason, I […]
