Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Creating A Solid Home Yoga Practice

These days if you want to do yoga in most places, you have to do it at home. Yoga studios closed. What do you do? Develop your own yoga practice. Join me on the journey in 108-SunSalutes-Home-Yoga-Practice-Bob Davis Podcast 925.

Twenty Years Of Practice

Most noteworthy for me is my twenty years of practicing yoga. So I should be able to do this right? Truthfully there are guides online, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Not Worthy To Teach?

Even more I never felt I my practice was good enough for me to even think about teaching.

Always A Student

Moreover I always felt the best thing for me and my practice was to be a student.

Enter The Lock Down

Enter the lock down. The sequester. Shelter In Place. Quarantine. Whatever we call it, the pandemic is wreaking havoc for Yogis, Martial Artists and Gym Rats.

Get Creative

As the result of the studios and gyms being closed we have to get creative. Learn more in 108-SunSalutes-Home-Yoga-Practice-Bob Davis Podcast 925

Not As Easy To Practice At Home As I Thought

Consequently I decided to start practicing yoga at home. For someone who has practiced as much as I have, it should be easy. Right?

Long Term Goal To Have A Home Practice

In contrast developing my own practice was a little more challenging than I thought. I didn’t let that bother me though. Above all for years I have wanted to be able to have a practice I could do whether I was on an abandoned dirt road in the desert, or stuck at home during a quarantine.

Enter The Sun Salute!

One of the things I love about yoga are sun salutes. So the two series I developed for myself all start with 25 sun salutes.

Not Done, Until It’s Over Done

Likewise the other day I thought, we do 108 sun salutes twice a year to celebrate the change of seasons. Why not do that at home?

The Wow Factor

Wow! Probably one of the best things I have ever done.

We Can’t Predict The Future But We Can Practice Every Day

Finally some real talk. I think it’s most noteworthy we don’t really know when this will end, how it will end. We don’t even know where we’re going to be when it’s all over.

Now I Have A Strong Daily Yoga Practice

While I can hope for the best I know the only way I can keep balanced, and clear my head, is to have a strong daily yoga practice.

Missing My Yoga Community

In conclusion I want to dedicate this podcast to the my teachers and the yoga community where I live. I miss them so much. I know there are zoom classes and DVD’s but it’s not the same as hanging at the studio and talking yoga.

See you all soon.

Namaste

Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924

Let’s Talk About Blaming China

The president likes to blame China for everything these days. From Corona to trade China is the world’s bad guy. Learn more in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Pandemics Can Turn Into Revolutions

First of all pandemics have a way of triggering once in a lifetime revolutions and war.

Trump’s Internal Polling

Especially relevant is the president’s recent internal polls. Currently his own polling shows Trump in trouble in battleground states.

Signs Of Trouble For Republicans

Even more republicans are starting to question Trump’s initial response to the Corona-Virus Pandemic. Especially since this is what is hurting the leader of the Republican party. Most noteworthy are signs of trouble in must win House and Senate races for Republicans.

Change The Subject

Seems like the old political saying, “If you don’t like what the media’s talking about change the subject” is the order of the day.

Blame China

Certainly China seems like a convenient scapegoat. No one likes a Tyranny, right?

Stealing Our Jobs, Letting Corona Loose, Buying Our Debt

Even more China is blamed for stealing US Jobs, cooking up the Corona Virus in a lab and letting it loose. Similarly lately China’s been blamed for feathering presumed Democratic Candidate Joe Biden’s nest and a host of military incursions and threats. Finally for ‘owning all our debt’, not true by the way.

Time To Talk About China

As a result it’s time to talk about China. We do in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Trade and World History If You Can Stand It

Hence in one place a little history of trade in the world. In addition a little history of Taiwan and Mainland China.

US History On Trade Too

Finally some discussion of our own history on trade, commercial espionage, and trade protection.

How Do We Meet The Challenge

Above all China is a challenge to the United States. How we handle the challenge will not only determine the future of China and the US, but our character.

Weak Minds Need Not Apply

For that reason it’s necessary to say leadership that has proven to be weak minded, bellicose without cause or unpredictable will not fare well in this environment.
