I am teaching one more class before I leave. Actually, it's the day that I am flying away. This Saturday at Wake Up Yoga at 10am. Hope to see you there!

Just Show Up

Today I heard a story about Mother Teresa on NPR. I was driving down the beautiful Kelly Dr. preparing to teach and some of her personal thoughts were read. I was really struck by these letters. All you need to serve is a willingness to do so. No need wasting your time readying yourself, just show up and be willing to surrender. School's in tomorrow. Watch Out!!!

It is totally crunch time and I feel really ill at ease. I am scheduled to leave for India on the 1st of September. Isn't that right around the corner? I need to get very clear on all the things I need to put into place before I fly away. Some of these things are very tangible and some seem very esoteric/emotional. I think I was kidding myself last trip. This feels like a gigantic leap of faith, on so many levels. I really am calling on the universe to support me and my calling. While in Pittsburgh I visited this cute space and practiced. Breathe Yoga, is a space in the hip part of town, and it was in many ways an ideal yoga space. It is up on the 2nd floor with many windows that are wide open. I had a nice time and after being in Wildwood and on the run/in the car it was much needed. I am sending out good vibrations and hoping to feel them return.

Mike's first show

From the Jersey shore Mike and I traveled to Pittsburgh for his first gallery show/reception. This has been a good week for him professionally he received a nice rejection letter for a staff job, shot his first assignment for Newsweek, and had a real art opening! Well Done!

Only Practice

In preparation for my trip I am trying to use my new camera, and figure out all this technical stuff. It's not my strongest suit. Mike won't be there to coach me through the whole thing each day so I need to practice now. My bother-in-law fixed my computer, so now I am ready to begin. Here is my first photo. Mike and I went to a beautiful wedding at the beach a week ago and I especially like this one, (Mike shot it).

Tony Soprano needs some Ashtanga Yoga

I just read the my friend's blog this morning. It inspired me to put some more elbow grease into my musings. While I am not retired, I am not working very much. Just preparing for the Ashtanga Intensive at the end of this month and the pilgrimage to India. I have been having the craziest dreams, I am attributing it to watching non-stop eps of the Soprano's. I am still undecided how it is shaking up my nervous system. I do notice that my language has taken a potty-mouth turn. Practice has been OK. Not quite feeling like myself this whole summer. I think here I become rooted in "the way things should go." In India you gotta let all that goes, how it goes. I need those lessons again. Much Love.

Teacher Training Information Session Tonight!

So, this is the last TT information session that I'll be in attendance. I am hoping that I can contribute some information/experience/love of this program before I fly out to Mother India. Last trip I was so organized by this time. Now I feel like I got it all under control, but not really.

An India Check List:

Passport Check

Visa Check (I got a 10 year Visa on the advice of my yoga teacher)

Vaccinations Up To Date

Malaria Pills Need Prescription/Purchase

Cipro Check

Rupees Still has just enough to stop by Coffee Day on the ride from B'lore-Mysore

I just discovered SUDOKU. I also would like to acknowledge that I didn't post on Guruji's birthday. Happy belated birthday! My prayers and practice are with you every day. JAI!!!!
