Practice yoga 30 times in 30 days (read all 8 entries…)
well...

hi. i’m at 25 classes in 32 days.

FAILURE!!!! O it burns. ;)

on the upside, i did my first handstand yesterday, and my first real crow! then I fell down laughing. on the downside, though, sometimes i have to cry during class and that’s made me at times wary over the last 2 weeks about actually going back to the studio, to go through it again. A lot of “what’s – going – on here?!” with the robot arms and the wax museum eyes.

But it’s worth it – rebuilding muscles that atrophied years ago; standing up straight without pinching my neck forward; clenching the jaw less; i’m more emotionally open (obviously); mentally clearer; more productive in general.

i’ve been keeping track of which class on which day, so i could start over at 10 classes in 12 days, but i’m about to start a 9-5 job, so that’s going to 86 my daily yoga schedule. :(

I’m sticking with yoga, though. i’ve raised some interesting questions of it and of myself through this practice, so continuing feels right. and wow there’s a whole lot of other people into this yoga thing, too, and that’s pretty great. ;-) [possible goal: find a way to make affectionate understatement consistently readable via the internet… hm.]

So here’s to you – as the Seattlite raises his second porcelain mug of fresh ground, french press, Organic, fair trade, locally roasted and sold 100% holy Lake Tawar, Sumatra java – yogis and yoginis: Keep Bendin!



read all the books on my shelves (read all 4 entries…)
Add these to the list...

Middlemarch
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

recommended by Barbara Kingsolver in her collection of essays, ‘Small Wonder.’ – which is a book-crossing book i found in the wild today at the seattle muni courthouse. i had to search a vacant desk to find it – thankfully the guard was about 50 feet away and seemed occupied.

ps. and to help me in this goal, i’m going to take a lesson from Kingsolver, and say if a novel doesn’t begin to reach me in 30 pages – out with it!
