working my way into Natarjasana
...Is a day full of grace and organization.
This morning's class was challenging to say the least, but I had several moments that felt so great that I stopped wishing it was over:
I felt my feet (!!):
I felt each foot as if it were a root spreading over the earth and grounding my whole body.
In contrast, when I first started yoga nearly a year ago, I remember thinking, "I cannot actually feel like my feet are anything more than tiny stilts....how odd!"
Well, today they were pillars!
I also received my handsome machinist's toolbox in the mail and proceeded to organize my cabochons by color and type: (there are three more drawers
than what you see here):
Some of the stones you see are a part of my collection, which I will pass down to children of my own someday; some of the stones are for work.
All of them are loved and handled with the utmost care and respect: I feel so lucky to be their stewards!
I am off to relax and enjoy my evening: Schmilly starts his dream job at Activision Monday morning, so we must celebrate while we can:
he'll be gone from here for roughly ten-twelve hours per day until we move!!!
I am sending you all huge hugs and a slice of my homemade pineapple upside-down cake (oh, it is so good!) complete with organic maraschino cherries!!!
