Last night after dinner Kelly and I made some ginger tea. It was so good that I thought to myself, "Tomorrow morning I am going to make chai." Most mornings Kelly and I sit together. Some mornings I wake up much earlier and this is not the case or if I have been travelling sometimes it is me sleeping in to get some rest after being gone. But anyway, generally speaking, I have a longer morning sitting practice then Kelly does. I usually begin before he does, then he comes in and then he leaves and while I finish up, he makes my morning tea while he prepares his breakfast.
(Can't you just imagine our conversations now?Me, not wanting to upset the balance of having my tea made for me in the mornings, tell my husband, "Oh no,honey, there is no need to meditate any longer. Really, what you are doing is totally sufficient. Absolutely. Don't worry at all...) Actually, it is not really like that.. Yet. No really, his practice is really his business. But that is another story.
So anyway- this morning, I finished with singing arati and with my morning puja and came into the kitchen where Kelly had made me a cup of homemade chai. See, I am telling you- he is psychic.
All right- here is another interesting development which is going to yield some very fun yoga opportunities. I had been planning on visiting my parents at the end of the month for my Dad's 70th birthday. But after slandering him on my blog yesterday, he no longer wants me to come. (Now that is a boldface lie. Really, that is not it at all. I totally made that up.) Actually, as each of us looked at our schedules, it became obvious that it wasn't the best time of year to leave for many reasons, we realized we have actually spent a lot of time togehter in the last few months, and also that Anne and I could only be gone 4 days and we would travel all day on two of those days, so perhaps it would be better to just go another time.
That being said, I have a weekend free to entertain the idea of a repeat performance of Eye of the Tiger. George Purvis will be teaching at Clear Springs on Saturday January 26. (google it and find the info.) So I will go to that -and encourage everyone locally to go as well. And then what about Sunday, January 27 as a practice and potluck down here? This is the only weekend I can do something like this until June 7th, unless another event gets cancelled. Any takers? Let me know.
