my own nameless lake

Down here underneath the microscope,
it's hard to cope.
don't hide your face in your hands,
'cause if your eyes play tricks,
it's outta my control.

Nearly every afternoon I get a headache. It is India having its way with me. The heat, the honking, and my heart often heavy from the dirt, the dogs, and the general state of disruption....did I mention the dehydration...it does get to me.

There is also a tremendous amount of study I have piled on myself....not to mention pressure. I went to the lake with my friend Zoe yesterday in the cool morning hours just after practice. The lake calms me. It seems a perfect representation of a yogic state...calm directly in the middle of the chaos.
