So I had the yoga marathon last night which was fun. In fact, I used "fun and enjoyment" as my theme for the evening. Isn't it cool to think that our enjoyment is simply a microcosmic reflection of the Divine's enjoyment? Love that. Sometimes hard to remember in the thick of things, like last night's hip openers at 6:00, but, well, no one said it was going to be easy to be microcosmic deities!
Thanks to everyone who came to practice in the midst of the holiday madness. Classes were a bit smaller than usual but so well attended by so many familiar, fun-loving practitioners that it really made my day. Plus I got flowers, a gift ceritifcate, beautiful cards, smiles and hugs, and well-wishes galore. (Pam- I even wore the necklace you gave me for Christmas but you were not in class!!! See what it has come to? I used to thank the double-dippers by name and now I am naming names on those who are MIA. Kidding. I know you are slammed right now.)
So then Anne and I went to grab a bite to eat at Whole Foods where I ran into my friend Joe Malina. Joe lives in Austin but he and I met in Arizona years ago and were even engaged to be married for a period of time. (That is another story, however.) He and his wife just had a baby and so we got to catch up on fun things like that. Plus he is one of the funniest people I know so the three of laughed hysterically for a good 20 minutes while we ate.
Anne and I got up this morning at 5:30 to set out for Georgia. As far as holiday travel, it was pretty uneventful although the traffic on the road outside of Atlanta was downright epic. We got here around 6:30 EST and sat down to a great bowl of Balck bean soup that Mom had made. After dinner Annd and I came down to the guest house (My parents have two houses. The guest house is a 900 square foot house a few doors down from them where we stay when we come. It is very cute.) to get settled in. I unpacked, happily discovered that I can grab a wireless connection from the neighbor next door, and I am having some tea, deciding whether I am going to take a bath and go to bed or if I am going to go back up and hang out with Mom and Dad. Bed is looking likely- I can hardly keep my eyes open.
Well, I managed to write a bit on the plane today and I am reading a great book about Cleopatra. (I love good historical fiction.) So- that's the very mundane update for today. More as the week goes on.
