So- on the YYTT07 chat group someon posted a link that you all might find interesting. Check it out-http://woyopracmo.ning.com/ The idea is that you join, make a commitment to practicing 10 minutes a day and log your practice on the site. Really, ten minutes a day- think about it- 10minutes of savasana would even "count"...
All right then. I am up, finished with my morning rituals, drinking my morning "nectar" (tea/milk/honey/chyawanprash- ayurvedic formula of goodness- YUM.). You know for years I was a black-coffee-in-the-morning person but once we sold the coffee shop I pretty much stopped drinking coffee and switched to tea. Then a year after that I started following some Ayurveda protocols, which included some whole milk and such (for me to cultivate kapha) and I must say it is just a wonderful thing to begin the day with a cup of hot, sweet and creamy tea. What pleasure. So luscious. So nurturing.
I can hear my Dad groaning even as I write. You see, when we were younger he told us we could have coffee but we had to drink it black. This is a whole blog entry in and of itself- vices were allowed but no "spoonful of sugar" to take the edge off. You had to face the vice square on, so to speak. For instance- you can have whiskey with ice or a little water but no sweet and sour mix. You can have a martini, but it must be dry and is "best" with a really harsh gin like Beefeater- none of the mellower, new-school gins that have come along are as "good.". White wine must be dry, very oaky, not sweet. Not ever. Absolutely nothing pink or fruity like a cosmopolitan is allowed and certainly anything that would be decorated with an umbrella or a pineapple slice is an example of one's weak moral character. The"list" goes on but you get the attitude, right? (I am kidding. Sort of. Love you, Dad.)
Like I said, its another blog entry all together because a lot of good came from that approach. I actually love black coffee and if I want to drink, I can do it without requiring all kinds of froo-froo chick drinks to get the job done. But I digress. Or is this a digression? Maybe this is as good as it is going to ge here on the blog this morning. Anyway, I am wondering if Kelly is going to get up any time soon or if I have enough time to get going on some writing. I hear him milling about even as we speak, so onward I must march.
