Eyeball looking out at the world

“If one is going to change things, one has to make a fuss and catch the eye of the world.” —Elizabeth Janeway

Elizabeth Janeway was a successful American author and critic who lived to be 91 years young. She was an amazing woman, and we’re going to hear more from her with a complete Women Who Rock profile next week.

Aah, change. You gotta love it. To say I’ve undergone a great deal of change in the past year would be an understatement. I’ve changed careers, the way I approach work and life, become a yoga fanatic, started writing a Web novel No Songs for Men—and am loving every minute of it.

I’m kind of a change junkie. I thrive on it. Love to mix things up and do something I’m afraid of doing every day (thanks, Eleanor Roosevelt, for that lovely quote). So, I couldn’t leave a good thing alone here at MariaMedia; I had to change things up, and today I’m officially announcing that the Daily Downward Dog (D.D.D) is going to be moving to a new home at It’s time for the D.D.D. to spread its wings and morph into the kick-ass yoga-inspired Web site it needs to be.

I’ve been making quite a fuss over the new D.D.D. these past few months, and now I really hope to catch the eye of the world with the new D.D.D.

Actually, the song “Changes” by David Bowie is one of my all-time favorite songs. So, on that note, I’ll leave you with some video footage of David performing this classic live. Look out, you rock ’n‘ rollers, the D.D.D. has changed!

My goodness, you have been rocking it! I LOVE the new downward dog site and I'm going to read the No Songs for Men this afternoon.

Thanks Nicola – I kind of pulled an all nighter last night to get the DDD up and running. It still needs lots of work – but I'm very excited to have it off the ground.
