I am 18 hours into my yoga teacher training. 182 hours to go on the first leg of this journey. It is almost nothing like I expected. Mostly, I did not expect to realize how much I absolutely need to be here right now, at this exact period in my life -- in this safe … Continue reading Yoga
I am fascinated by transformation, and how it happens. One of my most-loved loved ones has made a transformation. She has been sober for over 20 years. In the years before her sobriety, she was radically different in a number of ways – in appearance, in behavior, and in spirit. She tells me often that … Continue reading Transformation and Miracles
At 36: Things I Don’t Do Anymore that Would Probably Shock/Horrify my 16-Year-Old Self [I still do lots of other shit though] Worry about leaving the house without a full face of makeup or perfume … or being in public un-showered (!) or sweaty (!) Want to go to the mall all. the. time. (since … Continue reading 36

It feels as though a lot of us are looking forward to a fresh start, even if it's just an arbitrary date change. I've been considering my own goals for … Continue reading 2017
Merry Christmas! Currently: Spending Christmas afternoon in the cafeteria at the hospital where K works. I just had lunch with her and now I’m hanging here for a bit while waiting for her shift to be over. Certainly not a traditional place to spend a holiday, but I’m in good company – as I sit … Continue reading Random Life Update
Intention is Everything. “I’m never going to be able to wrap my foot around the back of my leg. My calves are too fat!” Eagle pose. Garudasana. You’re wrapped up in yourself – arms and legs crossed over each other, and pulled in to your midline. I’m still not sure why it’s called “eagle.” I … Continue reading 5.
