Well, the holidays are now officially upon us. I’d say let the insanity begin but it seems these days the insanity has been going on full force. I am ordinarily really good about ignoring the media – but sometimes I pay attention and and up getting pretty depressed by what is going on out there in the world. I’m referring to the Ferguson situation specifically but there is plenty else messed up. Jian Ghomeshi being charged with 4 counts of sexual assault and choking makes me sad. I used to really respect him.
This isn’t very nice Thanksgiving discussion. I’m back to ignoring the media. I don’t make a difference in it all, why sicken myself unnecessarily.
On a much brighter note, I am thrilled to have a long weekend to enjoy my family. I’ve been incredibly busy of late and rarely home. We have been invited to a Thanksgiving dinner and I will of course go to The Ashram every day, but otherwise I just want to be at home. Naomi and Fisher will be coming over on Friday – can’t wait
Here is the shot of the day fof #healinghearts shot in the big studio at The Ashram
Here are some shots I took in my funky “studio space” at IDRI where I teach my yoga class. The space has been rented, we have a few more weeks that we can use it. Then my teaching days at IDRI will be over. I will miss it, but there isn’t any other space that I can think of where we’d have enough privacy to hold class.
It is 95 days until March 2, 2015. The significance of that date is that is when I would like to end working at IDRI. It is still more than 8 million seconds, 3 months, 3 days. 13 weeks. 2820 hours. Not that I’m counting.
I am grateful for many things. I am also overwhelmed by many. So I’m going to meditate, stretch, and ultimately go to the 8 a.m. Power class (it is only 4:30 a.m.) in order to have the best day possible. A little wary going over to stranger’s house for dinner but I have to have faith in Harlan’s friends. 🙂
Have a great day 🙂
