Yoga? (Random Thursday musings)
Woke up, looked at my boots and thought "NO." That was really the only logic I have for that (well, I guess that is not logic, more than it is a declarative 1 word statemtent). It only got to 38 degrees, and I didn't care. People looked at me like I was crazy.... didn't care. It just felt so good to able to see and wiggle my toes. Reminded me that spring really will be here....someday. I think I will start wearing my sandals in winter on a regular basis.
By 6:00 I was beyond fried...snapping at my son, not wanting to make dinner, overwhelmed...DAMNIT, WE ARE GOING OUT TO A NICE DINNER. I am going to use some blood money from the studio and we are going to eat pasta, drink good wine (not Alden of course) and WE ARE GOING TO HAVE FUN....(I am thinking this very grimly...clenching my teeth). Pick up grouchy husband at the train station who starts.... "work sucks, neck hurts, world is cruel, blah blah blah." OH NO- you are not going to ruin MY night...MY NIGHT!!!!!!! Get to restaurant- Beet salad... "Mommy! Beets are the candy of the vegetable world!" Good wine..."Shan, I'm glad we came- this is fun!" Dessert...laughing until tears roll down our cheeks. Huh...look at what happens when I get out of the MY headspace.....
So hmmm- what was my compulsion to write these random snippets of time down for all to read? How does any of this translate to the mat? I thought about it for most of the day...then- oh yes!!!!!! THIS is the yoga of LIFE! These moments.... so precious so perfect. Laughing, crying, loneliness, doubt, boredom, joy. INHALE, EXHALE....perfection.
oh- and I wore my sandals again today.
